Ovulation



Went to the local health store and bought Vitex and Red Raspberry Tea. Will drink 1 cup a day and take 2 400 mg of Vitex a day to (hopefully) shorten my cycles and induce ovulation earlier

How did the Vitex work for you? I started taking it yesterday, and I missed my AF today. I was wondering if it caused yo to skip periods?

Hi Rachey,

The Vitex did work for me (at least I think) I took it from cycle day 1 - the first day of my period- (2 400 mg/day) up until ovulation.  I then decreased my dosage to 1 400 mg/day for 1DPO - 9DPO and at 9 dpo, i stopped completely in case I was pregnant.  And 5 days later, I found i was pregnant.  So i only took vitex for 1 month, however, i usually didn't ovulate until cd 22 - cd 25 and the first month i took it i ovulated on cd 15 so it shortened my cycle by 7-10 days.  I dont know if it was a fluke or not, but it worked for me and I am now 4 months pregnant.  If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.
