Thats a good idea, I'll do that. My fertility problem (in theory) is that I
will sometimes only ovulate once every few months when things are normal,
and any emotional disturbance can affect that as well. So I doubt I would
be ovulating, but it's certainly worth checking - my system is messed up
enough that you never know!

Thanks

I was thinking of seeing of homeopath, different I know, but this might be
another path if I don't any good answers from her. Thanks for the
suggestion - and for the food ideas - I really think diet does make a big
difference but I do get slack - I love chocolate.

Would you believe I got my period back this morning. I was planning on
getting a pack of ovulation tests, if I had done it straight away after
posting previously I would probably have been ovulating!! So still no
guarantees about conceiving but hey at least I don't have to worry about
weaning dd now - yay.
