    It used to be that you could only find them in 30-50 mg and 100 was hard to find! I would say no more than 200 for blue swayers, but that's ok if it's easier to find.

    I found 100! Quick question please both DH and I are taking azithromycin antibiotics for a bacterial infection - could this mess our sway? Were around 9 weeks away from attempting.

    Anything I can do to counteract this? Shall I double up on probiotics after for a week or so?

    Thanks very much, Im so worried xxx

    That is plenty of time to get over the medication. You do not need to double up on probiotics, just keep taking them and try when you're ready.

    Thanks Atomic. What’s the cut off point do you reckon, for antibiotics on a blue sway? I’m starting to think these may not have worked and might need to try stronger ones … but really don’t want it to interfere!

    Also, how soon before attempting would you recommend adding in snacks - is it three snacks a day?! Thanks x

    Update: just adding that I’m really confused about what’s happened this cycle. I took OPKs and none showed ovulation was about to happen but for the past few days my temperature has shot up so I think it has happened (but earlier than usual) without any usual signs such as CM etc. Hate feeling like it’s out of my control or maybe happened weakly thanks to the antibiotics….

    2 weeks before.

    Keep in mind that many people think they actually sway blue and WANT to be on them for their sway.

    OPK are fallible. We use them because it's the best technology we have, but they don't always work.

    That the OPK didn't read positive doesn't mean anything was wrong with your ovulation.

    Atomic, this may sound crazy but I’ve been reading about moon phases… I have a ‘red moon cycle’ currently which I didn’t used to have. Meaning my period is coinciding with the full moon. From everything I’ve read, women are more fertile when ovulating with the full moon. Should I try to shift my cycle before trying? Would that even be possible to do before June?! Xx

    Also... I've been eating prawns and just read somewhere else on the site that these are rec for pink. Shall I cut out immediately? I'm about 6 weeks out, can't believe I didn't realise until now.

    I've also been finding it hard to regulate my stress levels. Just in case you couldn't tell by now, I'm a bit of a stress head. I know being competitive about things you can change is best for blue, whereas I tend to worry about health and everything else really. I'm trying to think what I could do to help and generally feel more stable. I also have this dreadful feeling that it's too late and I should put off trying until I have things more under control. Classic girl mum thinking? Be good to hear your thoughts xxx

    Sorry, just going to add this on, as not completely sure of the answer. I think as a result of taking antibiotics, I now have a yeast infection or thrush – great. I never find the cream that helpful and I haven’t really found yoghurt massively helpful either. I’m going to buy the pills for it, but how long should I give, before swaying after taking pills?

    I don't think the moon phases really do anything and it is entirely likely that by messing with your cycle, you would end up causing more harm than good by disrupting your fertility. For all you know you may even have a longer couple of cycles and end up Oing at a point in time different from what you expect.

    I seriously doubt prawns cause any harm at all. Go ahead and cut them out now if you're concerned about it and move on from here. Plenty of time to let any potential yuckiness leave your system.

    Not at all, if anything it's more boy mom. Now the trick is, you need to treat that as a set of challenges to face and not something to postpone till you get it right. That's what the boy moms do - we have absolutely all that same stress and health anxiety, but boy moms are like "ok I'm going to do whatever I can to get all this under control". Pink mamas tend to skip months because "I'll never get it right." So just treat this as a project where you have to cross the t's and dot the i's and you'll be just fine.

    6 weeks is plenty of time to get rid of the thrush, just take them now and you'll be a-ok by the time it's time to try.

    Hey, thanks Atomic for your reassuring message. The thrush medication wasn’t helpful at all, I think it actually made things worse…

    Editing this message so it’s more up to date: I currently have terrible norovirus (as do others in the house). Unable to eat, keep down food, or sleep well. This has been the case since the night of 3rd May, so on the third day now. It’s nasty
    I planned to try early June (I booked a trip especially) , ie 4 weeks away. But now I’m scared the effects of this virus will have a knock on effect - should I wait till early July?

    Added to this, DH went away for a mountain biking/cycling weekend trip. He usually does a few cycle trips a week but this was one full day (sigh)

    I also asked in an earlier message which lubricant would be best for a blue sway
    1. Conceive Plus
    2. Preseed?
    3. Nothing?!
    Have read some different stuff and just want to buy whichever one you think will be best.

    And also, as Robitussin seems to be unavailable, would Covonia Chesty Cough Sugar Free Syrup do instead? The ingredients are below. Annoying that it contains sweeteners when I try to avoid them…

    Each 15ml Dose Of Cough Syrup Contains: Guaifenesin 200mg, Also Contains: Sweeteners Sorbitol (E420) Approximately 3.1g, Sodium Cyclamate, Sodium Saccharin, Colour Ponceau 4r (E124), Anise (E1518), Blackcurrant And Menthol Flavours

    Or maybe Benylin would be better? Ingreds below:

    Each 5 ml of Syrup contains: Guaifenesin 100 mg, Also contains: Ethanol, Glucose and Sucrose

    Anyway im in a real flap over what to do. Try in a few weeks feeling nervous because I’ve been so sick this month and also couldn’t track ovulation properly (no real sign of it happening and I had a bit of a fever). Go for it in early June or wait til July, but who knows what could be going on then…. Wish I knew. Xx
