Agnus Castus (Vitex) ladies - Lets see how successful it can be (2 BFP's so far!!)


Hi Ladies

I've seen quite a few threads about people using AC so I thought it might be nice for us all to get together and discuss the highs and lows and hopefully track all those BFP's!!!

Im Sarah and I have been TTC for 3 years with PCOS. Started AC last cycle but stopped taking it too early I think so giving it another try along with Macca.

Hope you will join me.
Sarah

BFP's

24th April - Billiejo First month of AC
20th May - Shelley

DH and I are wanting to start TTC this year and since my cycles are irregular I'm interested in starting to take Vitex to see if it will help regulate them. I've never been officially diagnosed but I suspect that I have PCOS and I've read great things about Vitex helping women with this. I have a question...what is a good brand of Vitex to take? I'm looking at the Nature's Way brand and was wondering if this would be good or if another brand is better.

Hi guys - can I join? Been on AC for just under a week now, prompted to use it because of my magical ovulation that has got longer and longer for 5 cycles after the pill and has now dissapeared completely! I also have PCOS and am also struggling with a mad thyroid that can't decide whether it's over active or under active!

Would be nice to have some company along the way xxx

Hi,
I came off the pill in December and my cycles are long so I'm thinking of starting AC so would like to know if it's any good. Did you buy it from a shop or off the Internet?xx

Hi Selina, I got mine from H&B but heard that it's not the best one as full of nasty extras? Not sure whether that's true or if it will work so will be watching thus thread with interest! X

That's the one I was looking at h&b, the lady said it was good for regulating periods, as mine seems to take forever last one was 55 days this one is 40 so far!!xx

I have bought some from H&B too but so far I haven't used them as I have read reports that say it can make your cycles even longer. So I will be watching this thread with intrest.

Hi ladies! I'm an Agnus Castus user. I take 1 pill a day which contains 225mg of Vitex agnus-castus, berry extract which has a guaranteed potency of at least .5% agnuside (which is the active component of Vitex) and 100mg of Vitex agnus-castus, berry. It is Solaray brand Vitex that I bought at my local Health Food Store for $14.09 for 60 capsules (No, I don't actually remember any of this stuff, I'm just looking at the bottle!) Also want to mention, I take it all through my cycle. I don't stop before ovulation or during my period. Some people recommend it and some don't. So I guess there really isn't a consensus on how to use it.

I've been using it since the end of Feb this year. So about a month and a half. It was successful at making a looong cycle end finally at 73 days and made my last cycle a regular length of 35 days...This cycle I'm still waiting on ovulation and praying the AC helps it come at a regular time. If I O again on cd 24, then I still have about 11 days or so til then.

Hiya, I have PCOS too, it's my first cycle off the pill and it's really really long! I'm on cd73 ... and recently bought some agnus castus tabs from h&b. To be honest I took them for a couple days but I have a bit of a sensitive stomach atm (probably IBS but getting it looked into) and I suspect they weren't helping so I've not taken them for the last couple days .. the ones I got reccommend 2 tablets twice a day..which seems a lot! do you think they would still be effective if I cut down to one a day?

Have any of you guys had any sife effects such as upset tummy?
