So many people ask me, “Aimee, how do I fit this into my busy schedule?” I know you're busy. I do. But it is SO important to take some time each day just for YOU! Use this time each day to reconnect to yourself – you can meditate, say affirmations, just relax, listen to music that brings you peace or joy. This is a special and sacred time for you to enjoy self-care and self-love.

When TTC:
When trying to conceive, you can do a castor oil pack daily from cycle day 1 until ovulation for about 15 to 20 minutes. Do NOT do a castor oil pack during your luteal phase when trying to conceive or if you are pregnant. If you would like to keep your uterus warm during the luteal phase, you can rest with a hot water bottle wrapped in a towel over your abdomen for 15 to 20 minutes each day.

During an IVF cycle:
DO NOT DO castor oil packs when you are in the stim phase of your IVF cycle. If you are estrogen priming, you can do castor oil packs just stop them once stims start

During an FET:
Follow the same instructions for when trying to conceive.

If NOT trying to conceive:
You may do a castor oil pack every day for 15 to 20 minutes.

  1. I am about to have FET. Since I won’t be ovulating, when should I stop the castor oil packs?

  2. I did a castor oil pack after doing birth control for two weeks with a lupron shot once aday for one week. I did a folistem injection and then did a castor oil pack. I am nervous now that I did wrong thing. Is this going to hurt my ivf cycle?

    1. If you only did one castor oil pack one day while on the follistim it really shouldn’t have a negative impact on the cycle. I don’t recommend castor oil packs when women are taking stims as it can decrease the effects of the stim drugs (like follistim). But doing only one castor oil pack together with follistim should have minimal impact. Good luck w your cycle.

  3. I am planning to start IVF in October. I want to do Castor Oil Packs until we start. I’m currently on CD22. I remember you saying do NOT do it in Luteal phase, so when should I start?

    1. Beth from Team Aimee here. Thanks for commenting! As stated above in the blog instructions you should not do castor oil packs in your luteal phase if you’re actively ttc. In addition to that you shouldn’t do them during the stims for your IVF cycle. If you aren’t actively trying right now then you can do them daily regardless of phase.

  4. Hi Aimee and Team! We are planning for a fresh transfer at the end of September, can/should I do castor oil packs after my egg retrieval?
