Hmm.... I don't know. I've definitely taken plenty of supplements without any test to say whether I should or not. I am erring more on the side of caution nowadays, but I still take chances plenty.
For $5-10, I think it's worth trying for a month or two. I'd suggest just taking one capsule daily for the first month, try two if that doesn't seem to do anything. I increased by one capsule every week or two after the first month and hit the high libido point about 2-3 weeks in, at 3 or 4 capsules daily. I backed off over the course of another 2 weeks down to one again, and that seems to be a good level for me, in terms of energy, and not wanting to throw caution to the wind and make babies now haha.
We picked up the ring :D. The fit is perfect.
I feel outrageously irritable today. I need to eat something and don't want to make food. I feel FRUSTRATED about nothing. I need to calm the fuck down so I can have a rational conversation with Boyfriend without biting his head off.
I wanted to make cream cheese clouds today, but don't trust myself on the road at the moment.
We had wings last night. Tasty, but covered in breading.
Preggo test was negative.
Yay on the negative test! Boo to being irritable. I know sometimes EC can do that to me; I turn into the world's biggest bitch.
Speaking of EC, I know sometimes that alone can add a full cup size for me, even without being pregnant. Maybe the same thing happened with you?
I've never had EC do this to my boobs before, but I'm guessing it might be from my hormones being...better? Also, I used to always get my period one week after taking it and have not this time. Other people I've spoken to usually don't bleed after taking it.
EC definitely made me super anxious last week. Could still be having an effect, but it's been a week and a half since I took it. Probably will take a little longer to work itself out.
This is why I'm not on hormonal birth control anymore! Hate messing with my system like this.
I had some Tazo Calm and a bowl of rice cereal. Don't feel like cooking. Don't feel like going out for food. Might have more cereal. Sadly, my bananas are still pretty green.
I feel a bit better after the tea.
I think I need some tea. Anxious today and I don't know why.
Tea just might be the solution to everything. Or at least a way to focus. Glad things are getting sorted out for you, despite being irritated.
I'm doing some reading on the use of Vitex for menopause....... I think I might pick some up today and see if it will help me. Night and evening sweats are terrible! and maybe it could do something for my libido as well. I'm still taking the MACA, but not really seeing any benefits from it. I bought 3 bottles and am down to the last one.
A little more reading on the vitex before a decision about taking it............
Glad the preggo test was negatory! :) I'm old fashioned........ I like to see a wedding shower come before a baby shower! ;)
How exciting about the RING!!!! I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for the official announcement! :)
Tomi, I'm old-fashioned that way too. Boyfriend said if we did get pregnant and decided to go forward with it, the wedding would be a lot sooner. Just makes me happy that he's 100% behind my decisions in that area.
News and pictures tomorrow :).
