    I just added black cohosh to my herbal mix this month. So far, my temps have gone down from 97.3-97.5 to 96.8-96.9. This is strange. I thought that if I were boosting my estrogen, temps would go up. Anyone else have this experience with black cohosh?

    Btw, I'm also taking vitex, dongquai, milk thistle, gluc (2000mg), vit B and Calcium.

    hi fifa
    sorry i dont know anything about the black cohash but i wanted to ask a question. i recently started the dong quai and my temps went down (but i did stop the vitamin b6which i think is the reason)did yrs go down when u started D Quai and what regime are you using for it. I was going to try day 1 - 14 then stop.CD1 being day 91 seen as af just doesnt want to show up.

    If nothing happens in the next few weeks im gonna induce af and have another go with the spi.

    thanks nikki

    Hi Nikki,

    My temps actually went up and stabilized when I started taking dongquai, in combination with vitex in liquid forms. I'm not very scientific about amounts, I do about 3 dropperfuls of each, in addition to milk thistle and this month black cohosh. After beginning the herbs in liquid form, my temps went from 97.1-97.3 to 97.3-97.5 pre-o. Now with the b.cohosh, I'm at 96.9. I take the herbs throughout my cycle, and stop during af.

    I took SPI last cycle and it didn't work for me.

    Hope this helps,
    FiFa

    I think black cohash is for hot flashes.
