Well, Vitex is 'WONDERFUL!!!...Because it has done its job of balancing this cycle and progesterone levels without the use of ProgonB:) I started taking the tincture on CD12 (Nov 1, 2009.) @ 30 drops/3 times/day until AF showed on CD29 (Nov. 12th, 2009.) I felt very balanced this cycle and temps showed this:)
I started my second cycle on Vitex(tablets): CD8 (Nov. 19th, 2009.) @ 1 tablet/3 times/day up until AF. It is recommended not to take Vitex during AF because it's not needed and it gives the body a chance to cleanse.
'O' day: CD18 (Nov. 29th, 2009)
'AF' day: CD30 (Dec.11th, 2009) for 7 days
Vitex: CD8 (Dec. 18th, 2009)
Right now I'm on CD13 (Dec. 23, 2009) and I'm starting to see a similar pattern to my bbt charts when I compare them to each other. This is showing me that I'm still balanced because temps are where they are suppose to be. During your Estrogen part of the cycle (roughly from CD1-CD14) your temps should remain on the low side and during your Progesterone part of the cycle (roughly from CD15- CD30) you should 'O' and carry much higher temps till 'AF' shows and temps drop again. If your temps stay high with no AF then it usually means your pregnant:) If you don't see significant temp. differences between your Estrogen and Progesterone parts of your cycle then it could mean that your hormones are off balance or your not temping the same way at the same time everyday.
