This time is about supplements.
Since I went back to Shah Alam last month, I did not take any pills nor injection this cycle. Instead we just try naturally, well not even trying since during my-supposed-to-be-peak-days I was hundred kilometers away from my bedmate or matemate [haha-->buat lawak sendiri gelak sendiri]. Unless there is such thing as virtual or long distance insemination then that will be a different story.
But I did take the chance to buy the supplements that I think would be beneficial for both of us. It is true that some of them can be found here but sekali harungla senang.
I wanted to buy more but in the end I decided only to go for this. Too much of everything is not good I think.
Mine is Shatavari or Indian asparagus. It is supposed to help with women’s hormone and to promote egg white cervical mucus [EWCM] or the fertile fluid. I need that thing, I haven’t been having any for quite sometime. So far from my reading, shatavari does help not only in producing EWCM but also in helping to regulate the menses [but I have no problem in that part].
The other one is for Swirly. To boost sperms counts. Doesn’t hurt to ask him to try.
I borong like a lot since I will only be back on the end of Feb, terus jadi member hehe. But like what teteks said, kedai mana je yang aku tak jadi member?
I also bought my usual Triple C, time released and vitamin B6.
The vitamin C is actually for my skin but I read it also help to take while ttc-ing. The B6 is to help me with my lutheal phase [LP] – I spotted 2-3 days before the full flow of the bloody shark attack. Spotting is not really good and I needed to lengthen my LP. Oh, I also took a pop of folic acid a day since long time ago, terlupa nak ambik gambar.
It is weird though, the vita C tasted a bit bitter but the B6 tasted sour. Terbaliklah pulak.
And then we have the green tea, another anti -oxidant. Hmm, aku ni nak ttc ke nak melambatkan penuaan?
I also found out from my reading on some ttc forum board, green tea could help to promote the EWCM. Just that, avoid taking time when it’s nearing your ovulation period and do not take them an hour or two before and after you take your folic acid – it sort of depleats the folic acid needed and do go easy on it. One cup per day is enough.
On an added note, I like to mix my green tea with some rose buds for smell and a little bit of flavour [plus rose bud tea is also good for woman].
Since I am lacking of the fertile fluid, I thought I might as well get a box of the sperm friendly lubricant, Pre seed.
Kenapa gambar dia, perempaun tu malu-malu? Aww
This “seriously fun baby making” thingy however, is not easy to find. Swirly could not manage to get one when he was back in KL the other day. You can only get it form certain pharmacy like AA Pharmacy but even then it was out of stock. And to find it in watsons, guardian or any another pharmacy is next to zero.
Luckily, I am quite an expert in looking for things [to buy] online so I found a site with a competitive price [I know there are few other sites selling but this one accept PayPal].
Why this lubricant? Unlike any other lubricant [KY jelly or whatever brand it is] this one doesn’t kill the sperm. In fact it sort of mimic the EWCM. Maybe you don’t need a lubricant during love making but it certainly help to have something to aid the swimmers to reach their destination [macam gampang pulak ayat ni].
I have tried it eventhough it was not during the peak time. Swirly said he feels no different but I said, there was a difference – a good difference in terms of feel. No, I am not going into details so you can either be thankful or zip your pants.
If you happen to use this, you should know to use it less than the amount recommended because it will be too slippery. I think it is made to cater for looooooongggg vajayjay, you knowlah ang moh right. Their size is also big so naturally, their vajayjay also berkadaranlah kan kan? Plus, it is not that cheap.
Oh yes, you have to insert it down there.
So I am waiting for my shark week to be over and see whether there’s any improvement although I think it’s too early for them to work. Yelah, this kind of things takes time.
This coming cycle, I won’t be on pills or shots either because during my peak time, I will be back in Kuching while Swirly will be staying back in BSB.
Again, bilala nak cipta permanian jarak jauh niii?
