    I haven't stopped bleeding properly since day 1 of my cycle. Out of 16 Days I haven't bleed 2. I stopped Vitex to see if this is the culprit. As it seemed to start when I stared Vitex.

    Perhaps a trip to the Dr is in order?

    Gotta wait till my gynae appt @ hospital on Thursday. My normal gp is away for 8 wks and the clinic didn't run this week so I couldn't get in earlier. I thought about going to the emergency dept of the women's hospital I go to but I don't think it's the right place plus I'd be waiting for hours even more than a non urgent case.

    So I'm 3dpo and took vitex yesterday and the day before. Not sure if I should continue or not. There is so much conflicting info.

    I had some luck increasing my bbt (including post-o temp) taking a B complex (with 50mg b6)...it also helped with spotting.

    High estrogen can cause low temps...

    Hmmm I don't think high estrogen goes with pcos. I might start b complex. What is it specifically for? I did have some spotting mid cycle which iv never has before.

    B complex can be good for you in general and generally is marketed for stress and/or energy. But the idea is it (b6) can increase the quality of ovulation and hence increases the quality of the corpus luteum which is important for producing hormones (progesterone and a bit of estrogen) during the tww. Progesterone is what causes your temp to go up after o.

    I believe b6 works better if you take it with the other b vitamins, thats why i suggest b complex rather than just b6. It will likely improve your overall health which can help your body get into a better rythym & mean you might o more readily.

    Unfortunately I think you might be in for another long cycle. fx I'm wrong though!

    Thanks blotched. Deep down I know I'm in for another long and ****ty cycle but I'm trying to stay positive at least til Sunday. Sounds like I really need b complex. I was gaping vitex would be enough. Which brand do u recommend and where should I get it from? And should it be taken the whole cycle?
    Thanks x

    I think you should continue taking vitex for the timebeing...i've heard it can take up to three months before having an effect.

    Any brand you like, they're mostly all the same. I take Cenovis Mega B, you can get that in a supermarket or chemist. You're looking for something that has 50mg of b6 (and will have 50mg of the other b vits though some might be a bit less). You can take it for the whole cycle and its fine to take while pregnant too (b6 helps morning sickness and b complex as contains folate which is important for growing bubs too).
