Hi there!
We have been trying for a baby for the last 8 months... Doesn't seem so long, but it is devastating when every month I feel as maybe finally it happened, but the disappointment... My cycles have been all over the place, I think it's down to stress because I am not getting pregnant. I ovulate, but it is quite late in the month, around day 20, which is definitely not good.
I have tried many things available, at first I only took folic acid, but when we haven't succeeded after 3 months I started preparation for pregnancy vitamins for me and hubby. Still nothing. I have been to Chinese doctor, reiki, and tried some other things. I started searching the internet to look for something natural to boost fertility. I came across cassava root fertility supplement, that is supposed to act like clomid, but is completely natural. I thought I try it, found it on amazon and is on the way, but wondered if anybody else tried anything like that? Thanks

I'd be very wary of self-medicating. Without the advice of a healthcare professional (regular GP or alternative practitioner) you could do more harm than good.

The 28-day cycle is a myth, very few women have a regular 28-day cycle, so I would not worry about the fact that you seem to ovulate around day 20. Providing you have a luteal phase of at least 10 days your cycles are probably fine.

You should talk to your Dr and ask to be referred to tests before taking anything.
