Black cohosh to regulate cycles?

I have read that if I take black cohosh can help regulate your cycles to better help conceive. I have just began 2 months ago, TTC that is. Any suggestions on other herbal supplements that might help?

I used Evening Primrose Oil and I conceived the very first time.  It helps with your cm.  But you must stop it after you O.  So it helps to be tracking your BBT at the same time.

try shepherds purse, but ask the salesman at the health food store exactly how to take it, it differs a bit for everyone.

be very careful with this stuff. Stop it as soon as you think you might be pregnant. This herb is also used injunction with blue cohosh for herbal abortions/miscarriages.

I would definitely try chasteberry instead.

I have heard that. I think am going to get my irregular periods straight with this herb, b/c i have read irregular periods put you at a higher risk of uterine cancer.

Evening Primrose Oil makes your CM the texture it needs to be for the sperm.  I would also recommed that you track your BBT.  Have you done that at all during the 17 months???  I learned so much about my body tracking my temp, and I new exactly when to BD.

Yes, go for the Vitex/Chaste Tree Berry.  You should also try red raspberry leaf.  I tried lunaception (using light to regulate your cycle) and got pregnant the first time I tried that.

Well first you need to know arounf the time you think you're going to O.  Go to www.ovulation-calendar.net and put in your first day of your last period and it will give you a round about time frame when you will be fertile, remember those days.  Then get yourself a Basal temp and put it right next to your bed, so you don't have to really move to reach it in the morning, (I recommed a digital one) set your alarm for the same time every morning and then take your temp and track.  Usually right before you O your temp will drop, then the next day it will spike up and should remain high.  You also need to be tracking your CM, you're best fertile when your CM is clear eggwhite texture (you probably already know all this already) The Evening Primrose Oil will help withthe CM as well.  The best site I found for your BBT is www.fertilityfriend.com  Try it next month along with the EPO and see what happens - GOOD LUCK!
