    Hi all,
    After 4months waiting for cycles to regulate post implant removal I am intrigued by these and thinking of starting them so wondered what doses ,when , and any side effects people have had.
    Thanks

    Hi,

    I only take AC & I take 1600 a day (4 tablets at 400). I have irregular cycles & I'm hoping they will start to regulate them, so far they seem to be working as my body tryed to ovulate around cycle day 18. Last cycle was 63 days.

    Hi hun

    im taking AC (1600mg per day....2 tablets)

    I started taking it as last cycle was in total 81 days!!...so i started taking it cd 71 (i think??) and it kicked my af into gear nearly 2 weeks later....im hoping it makes this ccle shorter (thats if i dont get my bfp)

    its very good for irregular cycles tho so fx for us xxxx

    Thanks think I will try it next cycle if af shows. If she doesn't I might wait til cd 50 and start last cycle was 69 and only followed by four days light spotting (which I know I shouldn't have counted but was desperate!) Having taken plenty of tests first of course!

    i was reluctant totake anything at first hun as i didnt wanna be replacing body with one pill for another, but you get to the stage where youre desperate and imglad i did now as id prob still be waiting for af to show now otherwise.

    like you said see how you get on and then consider it but i would recommend it. iv had no side effects xxx

    do you mean can u take ac and epo together? i believe so as they are herbal but dont quote me as im only taking ac at the moment.
    I take 2 AC tablets a day as 1 is worth 800mg....so i take 2 tablets to take 1600mg a day. I take them both in the morning together xx
