Another creighton bee – the few the proud lol! 

I’m on it (used it while TTA, then while TTC, now pregnant) using the suppositories, which are just as gross as they seem lol, and it does help.  For me, it reduced my PMS by nearly a week and it did decrease the cm in the luteal phase.  Idk if you have brown bleeding, but it also took that away as well.  It’s great you’re starting before TTC also, because we think there’s a good chance I had an early mc because I didn’t get started on the supplements in time and my progesterone fell way too far and fast to have sustained a pregnancy.

Definitely do the bloodwork too.  It’s a royal pain, but seeing the curve of your levels can be very helpful.  For me, my CD21/7 dpo number was fine, but it spiked up to that and then dropped down too fast, so if they hadn’t done the full panel it wouldn’t have looked like there was a problem.

If you have a lot of peak-type mucus and have trouble telling the difference, ask your practictioner/doc about a procedure they can do to fix that.  I have continuous mucus, and thankfully have not had a problem determining what’s fertile and what isn’t.  However, my doctor said that if it ever does become a problem, they can do a simple thing to your cervix that basically “toughen’s up” the overly-sensitive part that is getting overly stimulated and causing excess mucus.  Anyway, I’ve heard of that really helping some women.  As far as I know, it’s really only creighton docs doing it though.

Just so you know, there are maybe five creighton bees on here, if that, so you won’t get many replies specific to that method.

I wish I had looked into getting on it prior to getting pregnant. I was spotting throughout my luteal phase every month and having trouble getting a pregnancy to stick. When this one finally did, and I was spotting still, I had it checked and it was definitely low and was put on suppositories until the end of the first trimester. Thankfully they did the trick and I’m now well into the second tri. I hope they work well for you!!! I’m very curious to see if I’ll need them after this pregnancy is over.
