What is Vitex?
Other names: Vitex agnus castus, Agnus castus, chaste tree, monk's pepper
Vitex is a plant found in Asia and in Mediterranean countries. The part used medicinally is the dried fruit.
Why People Use Vitex
Vitex was used as a traditional folk remedy for a range of female conditions, such as post-partum hemorrhage and to help with the "passing of afterbirth". One of its alternate names, "chaste tree", comes from the historical belief that it can suppress libido.
Vitex does not actually contain hormones. It appears to increase progesterone by stimulating the release of a hormone called luteinizing hormone from the pituitary gland. Vitex is also thought to normalize excessive prolactin levels and promote fertility.
PMS, especially breast tenderness, cramping, and headaches
Acne, especially if it is related to the menstrual cycle
Fibrocystic breast disease
Probably the safest thing to take is some Extra Strength Tylenol. My dr doesn't want me taking Aleve at all, and I'm not sure about Advil, but I'm going to ask her tomorrow, since Tylenol does absolutely nothing for me.
I usually get pains about a week before I ovulate...or so.......they usually last a few hours...I would also try only tylenol.
