Hi Agnus castus is another herb thats meant to help regulate your hormones and help u ovulate. Also have you tried those pee sticks? might help you see if you are ovulating. Another thing (TMI alert) do you check your secretions at all? when you are coming up to ovulation,you should start to notice them good luck x

you can get vitex over the counter in most herbal stores! it is also known as agnus castus. it is said to balance out the hormones to help regulate your cycle and help ovulation. you can either take it in pill form or as a tincture. some believe the tincture has aquicker effect as the pill form may take between 3 - 6 months to work. i hope that helps!

What makes you think you're not ovulating Hun? My last cycle I didn't get the EWCM but I know I ov'd as I am using OPK's which showed positive then 12 hours later I ov'd then I got a temp spike which lasted the remainder of my cycle until AF came again. All I got was watery cm... Have you recently come off any bc? I am using Evening Primrose Pil this cycle to make my cm more fertile

Have just started on agnus castus on Saturday, got that from Holland & Barratts. I know one person (personally) who credits it with helping regulate and there are stacks more if you read up on it. Good luck whichever you go for!
