    If I decide to change my diet to see if I can regulate my period, how long should I give myself to see if it works? 3 months? 6 months?

    Hi bridgetcoop, the answer to this varies from person to person. Some people may notice changes in their health right away after making dietary changes, others might take weeks or even months. At the very least, give yourself 6 weeks to see if you notice any changes.

    My period has always been irregular since I could remember. I started charting- around month 6. My period cycle changes between 28 to 40 days! My body is very sensitive with stress. Besides counting cycle days what would be the next best to find when I ovulate? For example cervical fluid? I feel like that is the only thing that matches descriptions given to the "T".

    Hi there! Actually, counting your cycle days is NOT an effective way to determine the date of ovulation - especially if you have irregular cycles! But even if you have regular cycles, you won't ovulate on the same day every cycle - so counting your cycle days won't tell you much about your fertile window. 

    Cervical fluid is a very useful indicator of when you may be approaching ovulation. However, cervical fluid doesn't confirm whether ovulation actually occurred. This is what your basal body temperatures are for. This article has some useful info about how your BBTs can tell you when you ovulated.

    Hope this helps!

    Dear Girls.I was annoyed by erratic temps so I found this recipe for two Kinds of teas,that I've been drinking for a while now and I think they're been working pretty awesome for me.So FIY:

    1st phase {From menstruation until ovulation} : raspberry leaves,mugwort, rosemary,Salvia,elderflower

    2nd phase {from ovulation until menstruation} : lady's mantle, yarrow,stinging nettle

    All women this Could work for are very welcome!I was so happy to help my body that easy.I Started of with drinking a litre with 3tbs of the tea,but I now just make a pretty strong tea in a Big Cup with a little honey and Drink it all at once. I found the recipe on a Homepage that's suppose to Serve women trying to get pregnant and it's been suggested by mid-wifes here in Germany for a long time.I'm using it to not get pregnant though ;)

    My periods are very irregular and have always been. Until I was in my twenties I could sometimes not have any period up to 8 months! For the last 5 years or so it is more every other month on average. I have also started to chart my temp as I am worried I am not ovulating :(
