    Hey guys! :D!.

    So, still not pregnant! :(!.
    A very good friend of mine - Tiffany Jayne. Advised me to try Agnus Castus, I have now been off the DEPO injection for 7 months! Will this help me?

    Thanks everyone! <3.

    Hi hun.

    I tried agnus after being off depo for a few months. I don't know if it was that, but after taking it from cd1 to ov, i did actually have an AF.

    I had nothing at all for 5 months, then i bled for 18 days, stopped for 5 and got a real AF. Bang on time a month later i bled again, for 23 days :shock: then went onto conceive. That ended in early mc, but hey ho.

    Maybe agnus was a help there???

    My only advice to you is that depo does screw you up. Everybody's cycles return to normal at different rates.

    After coming off it, i had no prob with ov as i also got caught 2 weeks after coming off it! however, it messed up the thickness of my uterine lining, hence the very sparse bleeding (which was very light) and the inability to carry a pregnancy.

    From what i have read/heard, taking it takes a couple of month to work, so it isn't a quick fix.

    Best of luck hun, i'm sure it won't do any harm to give it a go :)

    Can only comment on last time i was ttc... Tried this as was so wanting a normal cycle after taking dianette for ten years! My first few cycles were 40-50 days! Took ac and then only 30 days.. Unsure if this would of happened naturally or not? But would give it a try you have nothing lose! Just take it from af till ov :)

    Hmm - not sure if I need to take it as my cycles are fairly short - does anyone know if it have any other benefits apart from shortening long cycles?? xx

    Me and oh had been trying for number 2 for 18 months, i read about ac and eventhough my cycles wernt too long (32-36 days) i decided to take the liquid form. i fell pregnant that month.
    i do put it down to the ac and have even reccomended it to a friend whos lttc and has pcos. her cycle shortned alot and as far as i know, is regular now. she did have a faint bfp before xmas but sadly nothing came of it x x
