Greetings! Thank you so much for taking questions on this forum.
My question is- my DS is 17 months old and nurses about 3 or 4 times per 24 hour period (and we are not planning to wean at this time). I have still not gotten my first period yet. While I know that going without cycles for quite sometime is beneficial in many areas such as cancer, I am interested in getting my cycle back for a number of reasons at this time.
So, I have heard of vitex, and I was wondering if that would be something helpful to take, and safe while nursing, as well as the dose.
Also, as an aside- I know many women who have taken 500-1,500 mg per day of Tryptophan (because 5HtP isn't safe while nursing?) per day and 100-300mg of GABA per day for PPD while nursing. Although I am not taking these things, I am curious about these aminos while nursing?
