    Default Vitex - your experiences.

    Hi everyone.
    Interested to know if you have used vitex - what did you use it for and what were the results? Would you reccomend it? Did you take it only certain days in your cycle or all the cycle??
    I would like to use it to regulate my cycles and shorten them.
    Thanks in advance ladies! X

    I used it to try and get a regular cycle (I have pcos) in the hope of trying to conceive naturally (i have 2 IVF babies). I took the Thompson brand one and got a regular 32 day cycle for 4 months, I took it everyday . In the 4th month we tried to conceive and I did! So great success for me. Now 3 months pregnant.

    You should be fine to start taking it now. One of the girls on the other threads just did, after waiting forever for her first AF after coming off the pill. She got AF only a few days later.
    I started taking it to help with short cycles and short luteal phase. I would often ovulate late in my cycle, but would get AF on day 26, regardless of when I ovulated, so no baby had time to stick. I needed a lot of help to fall pregnant. Vitex has been like a miracle for me. I started taking it when I finished breastfeeding. My first two cycles were 34 and 39 days. Started taking vitex and every cycle since then has been either 27 or 28 days. I just had a FET cycle so ovulation was tracked, and it happened spot on day 14 (instead of day 16-17 when it used to!)
    Vitex is the best thing I could have done for my cycle, I really hope it works as well for you!

    I just started taking it last week after @octonaut recommended
    I was cd35 and no AF, then 4 days later after taking vitex on cd39 AF came!!

    I will continue to take it from now on. It is great to see that a lot of other people too have had a great experience taking vitex.

    Ah I'm glad you popped up Lauzie! I couldn't remember how to spell your username so I couldn't tag you. Lots of other people in our current cycling group are using it too @Bub077

    Default Vitex - your experiences.

    I took it for pcos issues and fell preg with dd1 in 2010 ( she was born jan 2011). I was taking it again at the end of 2013 and ended up with an ectopic; I had stopped taking it and before I got the all clear from my gynaecologist I was pregnant again (all natural - dd2 arrived in oct 14)...


    ETA: I'm not game enough to take it again!

    I've started taking Progestalift, which main component is vitex. One of the girls at work had been TTC for 4 months, took it last month and got a bfp! I hope it works for me.

    Hi ladies, checking in regarding vitex and if you should keep taking when you get your BFP?

    I asked my doc yesterday and she didn't know anything about it. I have looked online and more often than not ladies have taken it up till 12 weeks.

    Can anyone give me their thoughts, I am not seeing my OB till May 8th.

    Thanks!
