Re: Pom juice??

  • I was wondering the same thing. I looked it up and I think it is supposed to help with fertility. 

    DD#1 is 3! And LO#2 is on his/her way! Due Feb 26th, 2014.

     

    BFP#1: EDD 5/7/2010 born on 5/20/2010. A little girl named Emily.  

    BFP#2: m/c 10/29/2012 EDD was 6/21/2012 Baby Hope was 6 weeks 3 days. 

    BFP#3: Twin B stopped growing at 8 weeks and 5 days. Found on 8/10/2014. EDD was 2/26/2014. Twin A is still doing great and due date is 2/26/14. 

     

  • It's supposed to help make a nice thick endometrial lining, but I sort of lump it in with all the rest of the fertility hokum like pineapple core and lots of green tea. There aren't any studies that prove that it works, and there is a boatload of sugar in it.

  • I think it's folklore. In the Jewish tradition, the pomegranate  symbolizes fertility because all of the seeds resemble eggs in the ovary.
  • Some one on here adds a capful or so of it to sparkling water.I am doing that to cut the sugar a bit. Cant hurt..

  • I drink 4oz daily with diet gingerale. Its good, I figure if nothing else, at least it tastes good. I have only been doing it since CD5 though, and will do it through O

  • I've tried/try POM in most of my TTC cycles. The first few I would add a bit to My white wine or something, but was no ways diligent about it and really didnt drink much of it. I really didn't notice any difference in my lining, but I did get pregnant both those cycles, they just didn't stick.

    I continue to drink POM for its antioxidant properties which also increases general blood flow [so that would include to the uterus]. Last cycle I was the most diligent, 8 oz every day. I had another CP, but I bled eay more than another of the other ones. BUT I also started baby aspirin, so I think that actually has more to do with it.

    I've just started to really like POM especially with a healthy dash of oj. Its not a miracle super food, but it falls into the category of "can't hurt maybe helps".

  • I was just thinking about this today. I'm starting on Clomid this cycle, so I want to do whatever will help me out. I found POMx, which is a pill that you take each day and has all of the same goodness that an 8 oz. glass of POM juice does. I've heard about a lot of people not liking the taste, so I thought this may be an easier way for me to consistently do it. 
  • I'm in the same boat as Katharine - the two cycles I really focused on drinking it (and green tea before O) were the two I got pregnant (and MC on as well.)

    I've drank it in other cycles (not as religiously as the 2 pg ones) and was amazed by the heaviness of AF. But, I also read someplace that may happen so maybe I was just over aware of it.

    I figure - can't hurt...right?
