Chinese herbs messed up my cycle

User Profile
Hi, I need help. I'm a month shy of 37 years old, my husband is 33 and we've been trying for baby #1 for close to 6 months now. We both have been checked out and our hormones, blood work, husband's semen analysis, etc. are completely normal.

About 3 months ago, I started tracking my bbt and noticed what I believe could be a progesterone defect in my luteal phase. I thought this could be why I'm having a such a hard time conceiving. I mentioned this to my OBGYN, but she was reluctant to do something. I found an online program, which I will not name, but is based off of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). I submit bbt/PMS/etc. data and the program's algorithm determines different herbal forumulasI would take during each phase of my cycle. I have the herbal formulations below for reference.

Normally, my cycles are normally 27-29 days and ovulation is around CD13-15. This month since being on the program I'm on CD39 and no sign of AF. I am absolutely not pregnant. My bbts in the follicular/luteal phases are off, I had brownish discharge several days after my period & a progesterone blood test confirmed on CD19 that I did not ovulate.

I'm extremely concerned and don't know what to do. I don't want to take any more herbs since they messed up my period. What can I do to get my period back?
