• Evening Primrose Oil:
1,000 IU per day should be taken from Cycle Day 1 to Ovulation. Do not take EPO after ovulation because EPO causes uterine contractions, which may interfere with implantation. A natural estrogen promoter. EPO is a good source of Essential Fatty Acids "EFA". All living cells need fatty acids for rebuilding and producing new cells. The body uses EFAs to produce substances which send messages that trigger hormone production necessary for a successful cycle!

• Flax Seed Oil:
"FSO" 2,000 mg per day from Ovulation to AF. Flax Seeds are rich in omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids "EFA" magnesium, potassium and fiber. When you stop taking EPO switching to FSO will continue a steady flow of essential fatty acids to be present throughout cycle.

• Licorice Root:
Licorice Root has estrogen and progesterone-like effects, cleanses the colon, decreases muscular spasms and increases fluidity of mucus. Licorice should only be taken for 7 days at one time unless it is Deglycyrrhizinated as it can raise blood pressure. Deglycyrrhizinated licorice may stimulate natural defense mechanisms that prevent the occurrence of ulcers by increasing the amount of mucus-secreting cells in the digestive tract. This improves the quality of mucus and lengthens intestinal cell life.

• Alfalfa:
Alkalizes and detoxifies the body
(making the body more sperm and estrogen friendly,
thus improving cervical mucus!).
Acts as a diuretic, eases inflammation, lowers cholesterol, balances hormones and promotes pituitary gland function. Contains Alpha-carotene, B-complex vitamins, calcium, chlorophyll, copper, essential amino acids, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, protein, sodium, sulfur, zinc, vitamins A, C, D, E, and K. and because of it's chlorophyll content Alfalfa purifies the blood.
PLEASE BEWARE: There is some evidence that Alfalfa may trigger lupus in sensitive individuals.

• Red Raspberry:
("RR") 1,000 mg daily: Start anytime in cycle. Can be taken during pregnancy until a month prior to labor/delivery. Strengthens the uterine lining which in turn lengthens LP (LP = Luteal Phase) LP = DPO or days past ovulation and eases painful menses or nausea.

• *GUAIFENESIN SYRUP a/k/a Robitussin and Robi
DO NOT EXCEED 6 doses in 24 hours. The Guaifenesin Syrup merely thins the mucus
you already have making it more sperm friendly or easier for the sperm to swim to their destination!

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
