Vitex For Fertility ?post #1 of 52/12/13 at 3:15pmThread Starterpost #2 of 52/19/13 at 4:28pm
I'm not sure if Vitex will help ovulation, but it does help balance your hormones, so may in turn help ovulation. I'm 20 and have taken it with no problems, I'm not sure it has anything to do with age. There are several "suggestions" from different sources for taking it. Some say from CD1 until O, others say from CD1 until AF, others still say CD1 through the first trimester... It's up to you to do the research and decide what you feel comfortable with. As for dosage, that should be included with the bottle, but I believe it's something like two capsules a day.post #3 of 52/22/13 at 11:28am
I am not sure I can provide so much information. But I know it helps balance and regularise the entire reproductive hormonal system which should in turn help with the ovulation. I think you can start taking it immediately you buy it, I started mine the same day I bought it.
As for the dosage, it should be on the bottle. Mine is just once a day.
I have a similar challenge as yours, so wishing you the best.
I hope that I would also conceive soon.post #4 of 52/22/13 at 4:35pmpost #5 of 52/22/13 at 7:37pmHave you been to your gyno? Most gynos would probably have good advice for you if the vitex does not end up working for whatever reason, since you have been trying for a year with no luck. I'm a huge advocate for vitex thus far! Have you tried any ovulation predictor kits at home? Buy some wondfo brand ones from amazon to see if ovulation is the issue- if it is then definitely try the vitex! It helped me.
