Fu Ke Zhong Zi Wan?? I saw it's on your chart and was just wondering... I tried googling it and couldn't come across a direct answer. How are you doing thus far?? Feeling good??

Just over a week ago I went to an accupuncturist for infertility treatment. He looked at my tongue and the inside of my lower eyelid, said I was anemic, told me to eat more red meat and gave me a Chinese herbal mix to take. It's in the form of little pea-sized pills. I don't actually know anything about the ingredients, but at this point I'm willing to give just about anything a shot. I'm so sick of waiting, I think I'd take poo pills if he asked me to! From a quick search, the ingredients are: Rehmannia glutinosa root-prep, Eucommia ulmoides bark, Cyperus rotundus rhizome, Ligustic_m wallichii rhizome, Angelica sinensis root, Dipsacus asper root, Artemisia argyi leaf, Scutellaria baicalensis root, Equus asinus gelatin, Paeonia lactiflora root. I've been meaning to do a little bit of research on just what each ingredient does, but I've been so busy. Now that you bring it up, maybe I'll do some of that research in my off time at work today...

Very interesting!!! So you're now incorporating accupuncture in with your fertility treatments?? Are you going regularly or for like a session of six weeks or something?? I've been tested for anemia and I am not even close from what I was told. That is interesting though... :-) I found an accupuncturist but they're an hour or so away and am debating about if I want to drive that... LOL I sure hope you get a BFP soon! This cycle would be nice... haha. When are you going to test, or still trying out the HCG trigger??

I think I'm gonna try to go at least every other week. I'm not testing out the trigger this month. I've done that enough times that I know when it's out of my system, and this month I only took 2/3 of a dose since my estrogen level was through the roof, so it'll be out even quicker. I'll probably wait until at least 12 dpo to do an hpt, and then I've got a beta at 14 dpo. I'm not even going to speculate about whether or not I'm pregnant, because there's no point. I've had every symptom in the book in the past and not been pregnant, and now that I've got FSH and hCG in my system and am also on progesterone supplements, no symptoms are believable anyway. Let me know how you go with the accupuncturist if you make it!

Lin, gosh I hope (as I say like every cycle for you) this is your month! :-) At least you know that due to the trigger and all not to pay attention to "symptoms" which can screw with your mind!!! haha. I've got a Dr appt. on Fri. to see what's going on with me this month. Something strang every cycle... Never boring, that's for sure. I saw on another thread that you're going to be in with your sis during delivery. I'm a__suming you two are better now?? That is so exciting to witness a birth!! Hopefully you'll be watching preparing for yours!! :-) Keep me updated on how the Accupuncturist appt. goes...
