    Default Irregular period and vitex

    Hello
    I just started taking vitex to try and regulate my period.
    I am just wondering anyone who has taken vitex how long after taking it did your period come? I am now CD 39 and still no signs of AF.

    Also just curious to hear any success stories as I am trying to conceive baby number 1

    I tried vitex many years ago for the same reason. Unfortunately I didn't have any success. I ended up going to a FS for treatment (clomid).

    Because I am a little nuts, this time around I am making more lifestyle changes (relaxation, maybe acupuncture) before I look to go down the FS road.

    Good luck!

    From what I've read and been told by my naturopath, vitex only helps regulate your cycle if you have certain hormonal issues. My cycle was longer prior to O (I usually O'd day 23 or so) but my LP was fine (14 days from O). Vitex didn't work for me at all. Well, actually, the very first month I took it my cycle was better, but any months after that it made absolutely no difference at all.

    I know for ladies who have an issue with their LP it can often help.

    I think the problem is, taking any type of herbs that are "supposed to help with hormones" can do more harm than good if you haven't actually had your hormone levels assessed. It's best to find out what your hormones are doing first.
