    Three to four years ago I had bad PMS - high and low mood swings, crying alot, unable to concentrate, feeling low and unable to control my emotions etc. So at that time I took an Agnus Castus Premenstrual formula and I felt it helped balance me out. Just got my AF yesterday and this week I feel so emotional. I have real mood swings - crying and feeling low then a hour or so later feeling good and then I swing back. I argue with my DH over nothing, feel I can't make simple decisions and my head just feels like its in a fog.

    Anyway... I was going to take the Agnus Castus tablets I still have to see if they help but am afraid they might mess with my cycle. On the bottle it says one tablet contains:
    - Agnus Castus berry extract
    - Dandelion extract
    - avena sativa extract
    - nettle leaf extract
    -ginger root extract


    I feel like I need some help with my PMS but don't wanna mess my cycle up. Anyone any advice, thoughts or ideas?
    Thanks

    Forgot to say I have been taking Pregnacare Plus vitamins with the omega 3 capsules for a few months.

    Hi there
    These tablets sounds quite herby to me - are they? It's just that I've read that you're not supposed to take herbs when TTC.

    Hi MarieLou 72

    It says on the bottle next to each ingredient I noted equivalent to dried herb. It also says Agnus Castus Berry & Dandelion Powdered Extract with other herbal extracts. Does seem herby. Will dig around on the net and see what I see about herbs and ttc - Thanks.
