I took a slow approach myself. But nothing really happened until I was over 50-60 mg a day. That was half a year of wasted time as I see it now.
- I came to a point where I either had something happening, or quit, as it didnt work as I wanted. I chose to go for the high dosage, and from then on everything happened within 3-4 months, first the detox then the gooood things like higher temperature and energy.
Problem with women vs men when it comes to iodine; female breasts alone needs 5 mg daily.
When it comes to fertility it is a great method I used for years; it can be used when one want to become pregnant or as a "contraceptive". It consist of monitoring the female organs / signals, after a trial phase you will know exactly which days she is most fertile.
