Did you take herbs with Lupron shots?

I am on lupron, for 4 days now, and I am also taking chasteberry, wild yam, and Dong Qui (sp). I came across an article on the internet that says those herbs may interfere with Lupron. Have any of you continued to use herbs while on lupron? I did a mock cycle with all these herbs, but no lupron, and everything was great. Please let me know. Thanks! :D

Hi Pirokp

You might get more replies if you post this question on the general forum, its where most people post, this forum tends to be quieter!
Personally, I would be careful taking herbs during IVF, unless it is recommended by a qualified person. It might be worth checking with a herbalist first.
Good luck with your treatment! Why not join in with the October/November buddies on the General forum? There are women also going through treatment running this thread.
Take care

Hi Pirokp
To reiterate what Sandra said, I was strongly advised against chinese herbs by Nurse at CARE.
