    Default Vitex and EPO

    Hi ladies,

    Just wondering if anyone who had used either vitex or evening primrose oil to regulate/shorten their cycles could share their experiences?

    What's the basis behind it? Do you take it all throughout your cycle or just the start? Has it helped you?

    I've heard quite a few people talk about it on BH, so just wondering what it's all about!

    Default Vitex and EPO

    I'm on 2nd cycle so I'll tell you in a few weeks if it's shortened my cycles (was 29 days then went all over the shop). It seems to regulate last month but it could be a coincidence
    It certainly has cleared my hormonal pimples I had.
    As we are TTC from next cycle I take it all the way through.

    After coming off BC, I had a 51 day cycle then a 48 day cycle then started taking both. I had no idea if I was ovulating, was about to go to the doctor to make sure nothing was wrong. Today was day 49 of my cycle and I took a test (didn't think it would be positive) and it says I am 5+ weeks pregnant! So I was waiting to see how long this cycle would be but obviously it was dramatically reduced by the Vitex and EPO. I took it for about 4 weeks then stopped because we were going overseas. I was planning to start taking them again when AF came back this time but as it turns out I am pregnant I definitely think it helps, even only taking it for a short while
