    I used it when I had reached my wits end - (I was on cycle day 300 and something)

    So my mum bought me this and I tried it, after a month of taking it I (finally) had my period :thumbup: Cycle 330 days in length - arg!

    I am not taking it now - a personal choice, as it isn't really concidered safe to take during pregnancy(I didn't want to risk it).

    Good luck! :hugs:

    I was on CD90, dismissed by the doctor and decided to start taking it, got AF 3 days later. Some people say it takes a few months to get into your system but i believe it was due to AC that i got AF as i never had any of my usual symtoms. I have continued to take it, last cycle was 43 days, big difference from 93!!

    Only take it up to ovulation as its not safe to continue to take it. Once/If AF arrives begin taking again. xx

    I'm onto my 3rd month taking AC, it's brought my ovulation forward the first 2 months, and my period forward last month. I need my spotting before AF to stop, so this month I've decided to take it past ovulation, through to about 8-10 DPO. It says not to take it when you're pregnant, but I have read on the internet you can take it all through the cycle and just stop when you get your BFP. I think if I stop at ovulation it's not gonna help the spotting. It sounds like it's personal choice. I've got loads of IC's so I'll use them from about 7 DPO just incase. I will also be taking Maca this month, once it arrives in the post, which is good for a woman's hormones, eggs and a man's sperm. Good luck hun :dust: x

    I took Agnus Castus along with CoEnzyme Q10. I had been told I would never fall pregnant naturally due to my PCOS, and would definitely need IVF to conceive. I took them together for 3months and fell pregnant, which resulted in the healthy birth of my son (now 21mths). I am having a csection on Monday to have baby number 2!

    I would highly recommend taking them together as the Coenzyme helps regulate your blood sugars which combined with regular cycles helps the PCOS symptoms

    Mines is 400mg and it says to take 2 twice daily (so 4 a day, 1600mg) I only take 2 (800mg) and it does the trick x

    I think I'm going to give this a try.

    I'm not sure if I ovulate so will I be ok to try them and then use some OPK's to check?

    I'm currently on CD 212!! might be a silly question, but can you ovulate without having AF and can I still get pregnant if indeed I am ovulating, but not bleeding?
