mainely :  I started drinking it after ovulation last cycle (was too lazy to get it before that); this will be the first cycle where I drank it throughout the entire cycle so I’ll have to let you know if anything funky happens. I did have a slightly longer LP than usual last cycle (15 days, usually it’s 13-14), and I did go triphastic, but I also think I had a CP/failure to launch situation, so who knows whether the RRL tea was involved.

Also, I’ve had random triphastic charts in the past when I was definitely not pregnant (not even TTC). So I think that’s something that can just happen to me sometimes. 

It is very odd that it’s never happened to you before though in 36 cycles of charting! I’d be suspicious too. I hope you get a BFP or AF soon so you can get out of this limbo!

mainely :  Thanks bee – I appreciate it :-). FWIW I also introduced COQ10 and baby aspirin this cycle in addition to the RRL tea, so if something does change it’ll be hard to know what exactly was the cause. Only on CD7 now and starting to get some watery CM, which is typical for me at this stage in my cycle…but we’ll see!

ETA: yeah I’d be suspicious about a possible failure to launch situation if I were you as well, although as you said it’s just impossible to know without a BFP. Hopefully you’ll be out of limbo very soon. I agree with FF’s interpretation of your O date, and it is super weird that your temps are still so high on 15dpo…total mindfuck!

mainely :  for what it’s worth, I drank RRL tea every 2-3 days for a couple cycles and never had any change from my usual O date.  Sorry about the mindfuck of a cycle!!

tiffanybruiser :  I was also taking CoQ10 and didn’t notice any change…. just for what it’s worth.

(I was kinda freaking out at one point about O being delayed, cause I had to travel for work and I was pissed that we might have missed our window, but it turns out I did O when expected.  I think I was just so hydrated that I never got a positive OPK that cycle due to dilution.)
