Hello, my new acupuncturist I started seeing just put me on “follicular phase” herbs. I started them on cycle day 5 and today is cycle day 10.
The last several days I haven’t been sleeping well, and last night I awoke several times, once my chest and neck were all sweaty. I looked at the list of herbs in the “follicular phase” herbs she gave me and dang gui is one of the ingredients. I remembered in the past taking dang gui and it made my cycle very short so I stopped it. She told me stop taking the herbs for the moment just in case.
Could I react badly to that or other herbs in it? Causing frequent waking during the night and also I have bad anxiety today. This is all not normal for me, I usually sleep well and am not anxious.
Is this cycle a lost cause now for trying to conceive? Is there anything I can do to save it? I’m almost 42 years old, have had a few miscarriages as well, so I really hate wasting more time.
List of herbs in “follicular phase” formula:
Asiatic Cornelian cherry
Tree peony root bark
Chinese dodder seed
Silk tree bark
Asian water plantain
