I am getting the IUD removed next Friday, 12/7/07. I want everything to go as well as possible. I've seen some things about Niacin and Vitamin C to prep for removal. Can anyone provide details or any other suggestions?
I am open to taking some supplements or drinking teas but some of the things I found on a Google search are a "little out there". No offense meant to anyone, I'm just feeling very cautious about what I put in my body.
Also looking for suggestions on post-removal. Here are some things that I've found and plan to implement:
Milk thistle - I already have some tea with this and will drink a bunch.
- I'll be like a Wonderpet! (those of you with small children will get that :D)
lemon/hot water/honey - I also have a honey/lemon ginseng green tea that I will also drink.
St. John's Wort - I've been thinking about getting this anyway since I was told I am very depressed.
Red Raspberry Leaf Tea - anyone know of any brands that are easly found?
Apple Cider Vinegar (2 TBSP 3x Day)
with lots of water, veggies and esp fruits
- I'm going to hit this hard, starting today.
Continue with Multi-Vitamin and Fish Oil tabs that I've been taking.
I figure none of the above can hurt and if it does help, even only at a placebo-like level, it's worth it.
I guess I will also need to pick up some Tampons and Pads as I had given mine away. LOL!!!!
Thanks in advance for all advice and suggestions!!
