    Hey Mumma K,

    I'm currently taking Vitex and its working wonders for me. Admittedly, I've only been on it for just over three weeks but my moods are better and I'm getting per-period like symptoms at the right time of month meaning I'm finally beginning to have some sort of a cycle (I hope!). I'm also taking metformin but have been for a number of months. Works brilliantly on my insulin but not much else.

    Vitex is definitely worth a try!!

    Default Hormone Imbalance, LPD. Vitex & Vit B?

    I've been on vitex for about 6 weeks and I thought it was making a difference but unfortunately I'm having a crazy AF like before. I'm hoping its just a once off

    I tried Vitex for 3 months and didn't get AF. Was then diagnosed with PCOS and put on the pill to get AF and then clomid that's where I'm at now.

    I took vitamin b6 and it improved my luteal phase dramatically, the cycle that I conceived this pregnancy I ovulated at day 14!! First time ever, I usually didn't O till around day 22 and then get AF often less than 10 days later. Apparently it's also good for morning sickness!

    I take a vitamin b complex as well as the vitex and metformin I think it's all working well together
