Re: What exactly does vitex do?

i'm gonna try some of this soy now too... But you ONLY take it on days CD3 & 7? Then vitex after you O until you get a Positive then stop taking everything? Is that right? And what about the B complex can you take that every day and while pregnant?

I see mentions of soy, too. I tried that as well. It made my cycle WACKY and I spotted throughout most of it (hasn't happened before or since), so I am certain it's not for me.

Oh, and Clomid didn't do anything for me either (except I developed OHSS and ended up in the hospital).

You take the Soy on cd's #3--7(each of those cd's) or cd#5-9,like you would on Clomid.HTH.

So why one set of days over the other? Is there some benefit to taking it early or later?

Re: What exactly does vitex do?

Thanks jen... I haven't had a really 'normal' cycle in so long i don't really know if i ovulate late or early or what? Has for my luteal phase i don't even know if it's short or long- not even sure how to figure it out

I guess i'll try and look it up.

I just found a neat website that has some info on what herbs/vitamins are good for ttc/ during pregnancy/ and post pregnancy. Might be helpful

I have no idea, I remember reading something about why you would take clomid on day 3-7 vs day 5-9, so I assume it's for the same reasons. Look in clomid club....

Re: What exactly does vitex do?

I took mine on cd#3-7 because I wanted to o earlier than my usual late o's.

I forgot why you'd go for cd#5-9--maybe stronger o? It's in Clomid club thread I believe.

I also started taking soy this cycle (#3-7).. I am just on cd 4 now so I still have 4 doses to go! I did have a massive headache this morning, but it went away with a couple tylenol. I can't wait to see how everyone does on the soy!
