Question Vitex users (ttc)

Any of you who have used vitex/chasteberry to help regulate your cycles, how quickly did it work for you?
I've been taking it 2x a day for 10 days now, and now starting to see the beginning signs Ovulation is nearing....I'll be amazed if I have a normal cycle this month!

Vitex has great benefits, but i try not to use it.
I get better results from Red Raspberry Leaf Tea and natural progesterone cream.
Hope it works out great for you though!

Re: Vitex users (ttc)

I used it for 3 mths and it worked perfect. AF came every mth and I ovulated all the 3 times. Then on the 4th mth it stoppped working. I upped the dose and still nothing. I stopped using it and AF came back.

A few mths ago I started it again but had to stop it because I was bleeding for 3 mths. Don't know what happened there. DR thought it was my Metifornmin and had nothing to do with the vitex.

Do you take it the whole cycle oronly until you ovulate?
