    I believe b6 works better if you take it with the other b vitamins, thats why i suggest b complex rather than just b6. It will likely improve your overall health which can help your body get into a better rythym & mean you might o more readily.

    Unfortunately I think you might be in for another long cycle. fx I'm wrong though!

    Thanks blotched. Deep down I know I'm in for another long and ****ty cycle but I'm trying to stay positive at least til Sunday. Sounds like I really need b complex. I was gaping vitex would be enough. Which brand do u recommend and where should I get it from? And should it be taken the whole cycle?
    Thanks x

    I think you should continue taking vitex for the timebeing...i've heard it can take up to three months before having an effect.

    Any brand you like, they're mostly all the same. I take Cenovis Mega B, you can get that in a supermarket or chemist. You're looking for something that has 50mg of b6 (and will have 50mg of the other b vits though some might be a bit less). You can take it for the whole cycle and its fine to take while pregnant too (b6 helps morning sickness and b complex as contains folate which is important for growing bubs too).

    Yea I planned on keeping the vitex up. I have no side effects from it so I'm happy to continue. I think iv been on vitex for about a month and a half. I will get some b complex sometime next week. Hopefully it will help with my low temps and help me get more regular cycles. My cycles were around 30days, then I had massive amounts of stress in feb and had a 109 day cycle. I just really hope this cycle is better. I quit my job and got a new one that I'm really happy at, and we put off moving so I wasn't too stressed.

    Thats great . Stress can really mess with your cycle, fx it sorts itself out soon.

    Just coming in to update for future readers. First cycle 62 (10 days after starting vitex), second cycle off pill 32 days (taking vitex throughout) and now 29 days (taking vitex throughout). So, for me, it's helping me regulate my cycles in preparation for TTC later this year.

    Anyone with pcos that wasn't ovulating prior to vitex but after taking vitex? Someone is of the opinion that if u have pcos and don't ovulate then vitex won't help u ovulate. Just needing to hear some positive stories so I don't lose all hope.

    hi becca , i have/had pcos not sure how it all works once falling pregnant lol but after having a non helpful doctor i read up on ways to regulate cycle and start ovulation and ended up taking 1000mg tribulus for 3 months i think it was as well as vitex, my progesterone levels were also basically non existent , i didn't get any spotting but i obviously started ovulating as i am now 20 weeks pregnant, i had some spotting at beginning of pregnancy but been ok since about 9 weeks.

    My cycle was usually about 6mths apart but was then 3 months apart after starting vitex, it was about a year on them when i fell pregnant. When you do fall pregnant though i was told to stop taking it as soon as i found out, i was also on metformin for about 2 years which i don't feel helped anything but continued taking that in the first trimester as it can apparently reduce miscarriage in pcos.
