When you’re TTC, you want to know ASAP if you’re pregnant. There are so many kinds of pregnancy tests, ranging from a few cents each, to upwards of $30! They are either dip tests, where you pee in a cup and dip the strip, dripping the pee into a cassette, or pee on the stick tests.

The cycle after I completed the pills was actually “normal” at 28 days. Continue reading

Evening Primrose Oil
I was researching supplements that can help increase fertile cervical mucus, and EPO was something that came up again and again. EPO is derived from the seeds of the plant, and is high in essential fatty acids and vitamin E.
