Hello ladies! I am new here and came across this post accidently after I read about Vitex. My OBGYN seems to think I have PCOS and so I today googled "over the counter medicines to help conceive" and found vitex, then found yall Well I am happy to say I found one GNC in my area who has one bottle left (I think God is working already) and I am stopping on my way home to get it and a basal thermometer based off reading this WHOLE thread. CONGRATS to all the successful ladies! I am no hip to your lingo yet and abbreviations, so please help and forgive me I look forward to this journey with you all
PS- I am buying Nature's Way Vitex fruit.. I think I will start with 3 a day and go from there..

good luck Mzitalian!! PCOS is SO common it seems, and as long as you detect ovulation on your BBT chart then your PCOS shouldn't be stopping you from conceiving (check out fertilityfriend for help.. makes it SO easy and its free! you just put in your numbers and it figures out your ovulation for you... as best it can, lol!)

I ordered some pregnancy tests off ebay, I think read from you actually to get them there so we did and I got like 20 or 25 tests cheaper than one from walmart, CRAZY! thanks. I want to test before I start this Vitex. I am almost positive I am not BFP however its always a possibility and I know everyone was going back and fourth with when to stopen Vitex and the only warning label on the bottle is DO NOT TAKE WHEN PREGNANT. that being said I would think taking it up until Ovulation is best. Is there a book of abbreviations? haha I know none of them really...Well ladies lets pray these darn HPT's are in the mail tomorrow I need to get this show on the road

Hi,
Just started taking Vitex this cycle and had a bit of spotting on CD13 which has turned into full scale bleeding. My cycles are usually in the 27-32 day range. Has anyone else this?

the only way I can explain the bleeding is that you are not ovulating even though you have regular periods and the vitex has brought on af so that you can have a new start. the first few months will be all screwed up but keep on going it will straighten out soon or later!!

The arrived for me and I finished my first cycle TTC and using Vitex. My last cycle was 40 days and this was 31, so I think that Vitex played a HUGE role in that. Also the was light last month taking Vitex which was lovely because usually during her appearance I could go into hiding for several days she's soooo heavy (tmi, sorry)

I am not sure if you got to read this whole thread Missy but its like anything different woman, different symptoms. I would give it 3 or 4 months before giving up on it though
