    You can start it whenever but ideally cd1. Some people choose to stop taking it after I and start taking it on cd 1 again, and others just take it throughout their cycle . Up to you. Good luck

    I took cd1 and stopped at O as I had side effects from it ( nausea, tender breasts, mood swings)

    I take it after AF stops as it gives me bad clotting, right through until 2 days before AF is due then I stop. The vitex makes you produce progesterone which can hold off your period.

    Monkey I'm taking vitex as part of a herbal formula from my naturopath. Can't remember what time in my cycle I started taking it (was a few months ago now). I take it all the way through my cycle. Not sure how much vitex I'm taking though - it's one of about 5 herbs in the formula and I'm taking 7.5 mls each morning & night. So it might be a lower dosage than taking the tablets, I guess is what I'm saying.

    I take vitamin b6 only as my cycles were regular but short and so far my luteal phase increased by 2 days from 25 days to 27 after using for 1 month..

    Has anyone stopped taking vitex & had withdrawals ? I googled this & realised why I felt like death warmed up when I stopped taking vitex
    I have a link but not sure if I can post it

    Mods please remove if not allowed

    but basicly vitex can mask vitamin defiencies & as I'm anemic I crashed & burned once I stopped taking vitex.

    I don't think I had withdrawals but I had constant migraines while on b6 and vitex so I stopped them.

    Hi All,

    New to this thread but I'd like to know if it's safe to start vitex when you're waiting for a miscarriage? I was successful with an IVF cycle however had a scan today and baby's heart has stopped. I'm 9+1. I'm basically playing the waiting game with the bleeding.

    I have roughly 23 day cycles. When is it a good idea to start on vitex? Should I wait til I start bleeding? Or wait til bleeding stops? Any advice?

    I'm sorry for your loss don't quote me ( as its been over a year) but I think you're not meant to take it when you're pregnant so I'm not sure what reaction it will have in your unfortunate circumstance, bumping incase someone else knows answer.
