    @AlicialovesJose:  I had luck with vitex, but would highly recommend consulting a naturopath before starting any supplements, because some can be more of a hindrance than a help if not needed. For instance vitex can cause regular cycles to become irregular. Have you charted to find out more about your cycle? Ovulation pains aren’t always a reliable indicator, they can be easy to miss. How did you know you were at peak fertility on your honeymoon? If it was a generic phone/internet app, they can be accurate for some but very ineffective for others!!

    You only have 25-30ish% chance of conceiving each month, even IF timed perfectly, so I’d be very wary of searching for problems that may not exist at this point!

    Congrats on your wedding!!

    I also had success with vitex, I was already ovulating each cycle, but it was taking 30+ days to get there. Definitely speak with a naturopath.
