Vitex Agnus Castus?


I have just read that this can kick start your cycle and keep them regular??

Does anyone know anything about them??

Yep Vitex can, but it will not make/help you O- just regulate your cycle.

Thanks, So would you use this to kick off your cycle and use for instance Soy Isoflavones for the OV?
When would you take the vitex & how many how long etc? Sorry for all the questions this is the first ive heard of this.
Thanks x

I'd be careful about mixing too many herbal supplements together.. make sure you research it thoroughly.
If you ovulate on your own, just late, you probably only need the Agnus Castus. It can also help with a luteal phase defect.

Soy seems to help you ovulate if you have trouble doing it (though I'm a little wary of it unless you've had your thyroid checked lately since soy can do bad things if you have a thyroid problem).
