TTC FERTILITY SUPPLEMENTS for HOME INSEMINATION ~ RRLT, EPO & Vitex


Hi guys, welcome back to my channel! As
you can see from the title, I will be discussing the three supplements that I
took to conceive my five-month-old son via home insemination. First and foremost,
get yourself on a prenatal. I swear by the Up & Up brand, the Target prenatal
vitamin. I’ve personally been on prenatal vitamins for about nine years now. I
started taking them the month I tried to conceive my daughter way back in the day
and it’s great for your body. First up is Red Raspberry Leaf Tea. It’s not the same
as a regular raspberry, you want to get RED raspberry LEAF. I highly suggest the
Traditional Medicinals. It’s an organic tea and it really tastes good you guys. I
always have to have honey with my tea and this stuff I could just drink
straight. I had it in the morning and then I would have it in the late
afternoon. Also, I think it’s really important to let you guys know that I
typically ease into supplements. It’s just personally, I feel it’s easier
on my body to not give it a full dose. So because I was planning on conceiving
that very cycle, I just gave myself three days to get up to the full dose of
everything. So, I think with the tea, I had started with one bag the first day
and then.. it’s just tea. What the red raspberry leaf tea does, is it clears the
toxins from your system, it prevents hemorrhaging and most importantly, it
strengthens your uterine wall because if this is an area of concern,
I mean how in the world would we know unless we went to see a fertility
specialist, if it is an area of concern, you want to
make sure that you have a good uterine lining, so that when the egg comes down your fallopian tube, that when it comes into your uterus it will implant into that
wall strong enough and create a strong enough bond, that it prevents you
miscarrying. Next up is Evening Primrose Oil, also
known as EPO in the TTC world. I would take one soft gel three times daily and
what this does is it increases the volume and the quantity
of your cervical mucus. Men, I know you don’t want to hear this, but this is
pregnancy, or trying to get pregnant. It is very scientific. When the sperm goes
up the canal and makes its way over to where the egg is gonna be, you need to
have a fertile environment, an inviting environment because when it
goes up there and it’s waiting for that egg to drop, you don’t want hostile
cervical mucus getting in the way of that and when the egg finally drops, you
want it to have been thriving, to where it’s gonna do its job. Thirdly
and this is seriously like the best one, even though all three of these attack a
different area and I swear they are like the perfect trifecta,
this is Vitex: chasteberry from the chaste tree. I would take a 400 milligram
capsule three times a day, so pretty much with the primrose oil that I took three
times a day, I would just take those and what it is, is it doesn’t have any
hormones, but it balances your hormones by regulating the pituitary gland, which
in turn creates a feedback loop where the pituitary gland signals to your
ovaries to balance out your hormones. This regulate your cycle, promotes
ovulation and also, most importantly, it will increase, like elongate, your LH
phase. The LH phase is a 12 to 14 day phase on average, after you ovulate, where
the egg has time to implant into the uterus. I think it’s just still
a fertilized egg until it implants into the uterus. So, we’re gonna call it an egg,
but if it doesn’t have enough time because some women can have a short as
an eight-day luteal phase and what happens is they start their period
before it has time to implant into the uterine lining and make
that bond. So yes, it’ll increase your luteal phase, that’s the LH phase and it
does that by increasing the luteinizing hormone and boosting progesterone. If you
don’t have high enough progesterone levels after the egg implants, a lot of
women tend to miscarry. My cycles are all over the map you guys. I mean I went
back, I’m gonna cover this in how to track your cycle, but I went back like
over a year of all my cycles and they would go from 28 days to 42 days. They are
just all over the map. After you’ve ovulated, you want to get
off the red raspberry leaf tea and the evening primrose oil. However, if you
think for any reason that you could miscarry, if you have had a miscarriage
in the past, or if you’re a little bit older.. I was 31 when I did the
insemination, I’m 32 now, but just because I was a little bit older, I mean I was 23
when I had my daughter, fully confident there, but because I wanted to just
really just do everything I needed to do, I continued taking just the vitex and I
would continue taking those three pills every single day throughout my entire
first trimester and I told myself that I was going to at ten weeks, start weaning
off slowly because like I said it increases your progesterone levels it
really just keeps your hormones balanced and that is the sensitive time, the first
trimester. So, at ten weeks I wanted to really slowly wean off, so my body could
kind of catch up with producing those hormones on its own. So by thirteen weeks, that was it, I was completely off and I have a perfectly happy, healthy five
month old baby boy. So, disclaimer, I gotta put this out there, I know you hear it
anytime anyone talks about any kind of medicine or supplements: I’m not a
medical professional, I highly recommend doing your own research. Look at forums, I
mean definitely look at the real research, but check out forums and get
some feedback from other moms who have tried these supplements.
There’s negative information on everything out there. If you look up the
greatest product in the world, it’s not gonna have five stars. It’s gonna have
like 4.7. That’s just kind of how it is. So, there are gonna be some negative
reviews, but I did so much research and I got nothing but majority positive
feedback on all of these things. You are taking care of your cervical mucus to
help get the sperm there, you’re taking care of your uterus to make sure that
that egg implants and you are balancing out your hormones, so that you don’t miscarry.
So that your levels stay good and you know, you’ve got enough time for
it to implant before you start your period and you’ve got those nice
balanced out progesterone levels. Even even your surge, those days
when you can conceive, your surge is a little bit longer as well. I do think
that it is really important for me to be upfront with you guys:
I was pretty healthy when I was starting this journey. I was exercising several
times a week, I had not drank or smoked in four years at the time and, this is
not to convert you, but I just want to tell you, I’m vegetarian. So, I don’t know
if you know anything about factory farming, but all of those animals are
crammed in tight quarters, they’re filthy, they’re treated like crap,
they’re under so much stress and stress makes us vulnerable to illness. So when
you consume meat, you’re consuming those spiked cortisol levels, stress and
whatever sicknesses that those animals have. Along with the growth hormones and
all that other stuff. I really don’t mean to lecture you guys. I just want to let
you know that I’m vegetarian, I was exercising and I didn’t drink or smoke.
So those things create a really good base for me, but I genuinely, to my core,
do not think that I would’ve gotten pregnant that first month,
just based on tracking and inseminating, but like I said I’m not a medical
professional, do your research. If you guys have tried any of these supplements,
please comment below and let me know how they worked for you. If you happen to
have a favorite supplement that you swear by for trying to conceive, please
also put that down there. Also, please subscribe and like this video and I will
see you in the next one, bye!
