    I take mine the whole time....the whole month i guess!! but I read somewhere that it is best not to take it till you come off from af... to just let af do her thing and go back on....But ive read also that taking it the whole month doesnt hurt either...Ive been taking it for about 2 months now!! Cause I just need the little push and I am also taking Metformin as well so I dont know if it is Vitex that has helped me have a cycle or the metformin... But I did so much research on Vitex before taking it that no one is completly the same ideas or opinions on when is the best time to take it!! I take mine now from when I stop af to I start af! how much are you taking are you doing tincture or pills??
