Well... I've stopped the Vitex after a month.
I started off taking the recommended dose and it really started messing with me. Everything from painful, painful cramps to really bad nightmares... I was also super nauseated all the time. I tried cutting the dose in half, to just one pill in the morning, that helped some, but I was still having side effects.
My husband and I talked about it and thought it best to just stop.
So now I'm back to square one... I still haven't had a cycle since the beginning of January and I've taken prego tests a few times just to make sure I'm not cooking anything in there. All have been negative so far. The funny thing is even though I haven't had a cycle it seems like my body is trying to ovulate at the moment which is weird to me. I didn't think that you could ovulate unless you had a cycle.
Not sure what to do right now other than continue to have sex and pray that we get a good batch of swimmers I've also decided to focus on being healthy. I've been doing yoga now for 7 months now and I've recently cut back on my alcohol. Not that I drank very much but instead of 3 or 4 drinks a week I'm down to just one, maybe two if it's a special occasion. Also doing my best to eat better and more organic foods.
Any advise would be appreciated!
