Help with Vitex


Hello all!!

I have just bought Vitex for the first time, I have irregular cycles, since being off of the pill I've had the following cycles:
1st: 47 days
2nd: 47 days
3rd: 58 days and counting

I'm assuming I'm not ovulating so I thought I'd give Vitex a go, has anyone had any experience? Good and bad?? And I when in my cycle should I take it? Straight away or wait until AF finally shows and go from there?

Thank you and sticky baby dust to you all

Im cd 5 just started my vitex a couple days ago Gaia brand 1000mg in the morning on an empty tummy. I took vitex in the past for 3 months.. No bfp but it brought my long (150 day) cycles to perfect 28 day cycles in a very short time. From what I remember in the short time I took it (3 months) I took through out my whole cycle did notice it made af heavier. I followed the directions of natural-fertility-info.com to take all cycle long. I plan to do it again this time, some plp have a different opinion.

Thank you for replying!! Good to see we are so close in starting it!! Maybe we should keep in touch on here?

It's good to hear that it regulated your cycle! I'm hoping for the same.

Mine are blackmores 660g, I'm taking 3 a day as directed so 1980mg per day so will see what it does.

Do you temp or use opks?

Ur welcome! That'll be great, its defiantly the most amazing thing ever in my opinion. I have not started temping yet, I will when the Vitex kicks in. It also gives you fantastic temps, that s something I also remember. I saved my old charts as well. Hoping if works wonders for us! I've been on this site for 5 years.. Ready to share a success story lol.

I'm so excited!!!! Haha good to have someone to go through this with. I originally came on this site in 2013, we tried for over a year with irregularities and no confirmed ovulation before I went back on bcp. We got married and are 6 weeks away from moving into the house we built so now is the perfect time

Let me know when you start temping and we can compare notes haha x

I know the frustation Ash, my last cycle was cd152 before AF. I'm sorry you have to deal with that. Hang in there the Vitex will kick in. 1000mg or more and it will kick in fast. You'll have your O day soon.

I should be getting my bottle of Vitex today. I have extremely irregular cycles (45days+) and it drives me crazy. I'm excited to start taking them and hopefully they will help regulate my cycles. We've been TTC since March and I was on the demo shot after that. Hopefully it works for all of us.
