well it worked

Well, the Vitex finally worked. I got my BFP. I had implantation bleeding Friday and Saturday and got my BFP

I am really nervous since my cycles have been really short for the last 9 mos and the LP really short every cycle that it won't stick, I won't be able to carry due low hormones or something else. But I am cautiously sharing my news.

Thanks for listening.

Re: well it worked

Thanks mama, I was taking 300mg Vitex 3 times a day, Red Clover 2, 2times a day, and started progesterone cream after Ovulation. I also drank a ton of Red Rasberry Leaf tea. I think increasing the Vitex helped because I od this cycle on day 18 instead of 21 or 22. (I had mastitis when I should have od and it really messed me up and I thought I was out this mo!)

I hope you get your BFP I pray for the mamas on here all the time. I am a looker here and feel I know you all.

Congrats Mama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have some questions for you:
--Were you taking the liquid form of Vitex or pill? I've been taking the liquid for a little over a month now (trying to stimulate AF/O)
--How long (duration) were you taking the Vitex? Sometimes herbs take a min of 90 days to do anything
--Do you think the mastisis was related to anything or a totally isolated thing? I am asking because 2 weeks after I *think* (hoping) my PPAF finally returned, I got mastisis and then a week later had spotting...at the time I considered it unrelated to ttc but just curious what your thoughts are since I thought it was a coincidence that you also experienced something similar.

Anyway, sorry to hound you with questions...I will pray for a sticky bean for you as well. Thanks for sharing your news. As much as I am a beleiver in alternative medicine, there is a part of me that always remains skeptical and so I love to hear when the stuff actually works!

ETA: also, are you BF?
