Day 5 of drinking that concoction & late last night I got my period (day 78 of my cycle).  Very happy about this progress & just thought I'd share the news with all.  It's not everything, but it's a start . . .

You sure don't waste any time! Go girl!

Why knows if the yucky tea did the trick, but it's got to be a good sign don't you think?!  I'm now hoping now that you're starting from day 1 .... you'll see more regular and frequent (but not crazy frequent) returns to the start of the cycle.

OK. Sorry for the play by play on this . . . the period lasted less than 24 hrs.  It was a full-on bleed (i.e., not just spotting), but its brevity is cause for concern.  I called my doctor's office to go for another day 3 fsh/estrodial test so that we would have another data point -- I have a follow up with my dr next Friday.  Now I'm thinking another blood test will probably be pointless.  DH thinks I should go anyway.

Help!  Any thoughts? Anyone?  Man, what an emotional roller coaster this all is.  :D

The blood test will be useful to know what your body is doing.  You can use western and eastern medicine together. Congrats on having a period, it's definately something.  My accupuncturist thought that it would take her 4 "cycles" before we got anything close to regulating my periods.

A bleed however short is still a step in the right direction.
