    Default IVF and Vitex- ok or not?

    Hi there,
    Hoping you wise ladies can help me out with answers to an IVF questions.
    We will be jumping on the IVF train early next year and I'm currently taking
    VITEX
    CoQ10
    Preg Multi

    TBH the vitex keeps me 'sane' hormone wise and keeps my cycles regular. My question is-
    Should I wean myself off them now, to have a clean slate for IVF or can I keep taking them until I officially start?
    I'm worried how my body will react with stopping as I've been on them for 18mths

    I used Vitex for my natural FET cycles (no drugs) to help with cm and LP length. I have read that u shouldn't use vitex during stim cycles. I would keep taking until start of your ivf stim cycle. Good luck.

    Thanks so much for responding, I think your right my FS should know how to sort my hormones out when the time comes. Thanks again 😉
