I cant recall if I started on day 1 but I took it non stop (did not stop after ovulation). Had a chemical pregnancy 3 months after starting Vitex and a sticky pregnancy 2 months later (currently 31 wks)
Well I still haven't ovulated...maybe vitex isn't working after all lol
Vitex usually shortens the LP when it's long, but when it's normal it's doesn't effect it. For me, my LP is perfect every month always 14/15 days without fail. Vitex never changes it. It's the first part of my cycle that is the issue with ovulation happening sometimes not until CD22 :/
Vitex basically evens out the hormones. So if the issue is with estrogen and LH/FSH (so issues with first half) it will help that. If the LP is missed up that is usually to do with progesterone.
