vitex?

I got my vitex in last week, but it is still sealed b/c I do not know how to take it. Do I take it EVERY day, or just certain says of my cycle?

IDK Mama, I know that in FertilAid, the suppliment, which has Vitex in it, I take it every day until I get a +...

Where did you get just plain vitex? The FertilAid is starting to get pricey... And how much will you be taking?

Re: vitex?

The liquid herb in a tincture form is much more potent beause a pill or dried herb has been dried and possibly "watered down" per se. But, just take the reccomended dosage twice a day. Its a pretty safe herb so you can take more (maybe 3Xs a day) if you want. Just so you know, like any herb or alternative med, it will take a min of 90 days to take any effect so be patient! It helps to record what and how much you take every day . GL!

Re: vitex?

atleast 1-2 times a day. until you get a positive. don't give it to hubby, vtex is also known as chaste berry, the monks used to eat it to help curb sexual desires. Isn't it weird how something that helps us be fertile, helps them not have desire?
