DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU HAVE DIAGNOSED FERTILITY ISSUES
on April 5, 2017
WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!! This product is ONLY for women who have fertility problems. NOT FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE REGULAR CYCLES!! Make sure you do not buy this product unless you legitimately have fertility issues and have consulted your doctor about it. They do not post this on Amazon, but their website states that the only people who should take this are people who: "have irregular cycles, women with PCOS, women who have taken Clomid or other fertility drugs, couples who've been trying to conceive for an extended period of time, couples trying to conceive after age 35, or couples who've tried IVF or other fertility interventions without success." Again, THIS IS NOT FOR WOMEN WHO DO NOT HAVE DIAGNOSED FERTILITY ISSUES.
Here's my story: we've been trying to conceive for about 5 months. Every month I hope it's the one, and haven't gotten pregnant yet. I know I need to be patient, but that's never been my strong suit. I found this product and thought, "maybe this will help boost my fertility and make it happen." At the time, I didn't realize that this will completely destroy your hormones if you don't have a diagnosed infertility issue. I took the pills for almost 2 weeks and was really excited to see if they worked. Now I'll repeat that. 2 WEEKS. That's all it took to completely mess me up and throw my entire cycle out of sync. Anyways, I'll go back to my story. Took the pills, started having what I thought were early pregnancy symptoms after ovulation. I had every single symptom. Started with tan discharge a week after ovulation, elevated BBP, painful breasts and nipples, breast growth, darkened nipples, headaches, heartburn, a lot of creamy cervical mucus, fatigue, weird dreams, oily hair, back pain, and I COMPLETELY MISSED MY PERIOD. I was ecstatic! I thought they worked! I'm finally pregnant! But I kept taking pregnancy tests and they all came back negative. At this point I was 9 days late and they were still saying negative. Remember how I said I don't have patience? Well I didn't want to wait until my OBGYN appointment and I run an urgent care clinic so I had one of my employees draw my blood to test for HCG and my hormone levels. When the blood HCG came back negative, that's when I finally accepted that I wasn't actually pregnant. I went online and did a ton of research about these pills and found out that if you are one of the unlucky that took these pills and don't have diagnosed fertility issues, they will completely mess up your cycle for MONTHS.
After all this I was upset but it wasn't until I went to my OBGYN that I was absolutely devastated. Apparently if you have a regular cycle and no infertility issues, these pills will ruin your regular cycles and completely mess up your hormones. All those symptoms I had were because of the pills. Not because of pregnancy. The pills made my hormones go haywire and lead to all sorts of crazy symptoms that I'm still having to this day. Not only that, I still haven't had a period and have no idea when that will ever come. THE PILLS ALSO MADE ME STOP OVULATING.
So please, whatever you do, do not order these if you do not have diagnosed infertility and have not consulted your doctor. It is not worth the heartbreak and self loathing that comes with knowing that you are the reason you have set back trying to conceive for however many months it'll take for your body to regulate itself after getting completely messed up on these pills. I have been so upset with myself and so depressed that getting pregnant has been put on hold because I've messed up my hormones, my ovulation, and my period (which I still haven't had) on these pills. And this was after 2 WEEKS OF TAKING THEM. So please. Don't even take a single one. I wouldn't wish this on anyone. I'm sure they work for women who have diagnosed infertility and have consulted their doctors, but they need a disclaimer for everyone else.
