How Can I Bring On Ovulation?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My DD is breastfed, almost 1 year old, and I still haven't had a PPAF yet. We want to TTC soon (biological clock is ticking)- but obviously can't until I ovulate. Is there a way to bring on AF sooner-- without weaning my daughter? (I don't want to wean her until she's ready and she's NOT ready!). Thanks!!!

Some people have had success with taking Vitex (Chasteberry Extract) herbal supplements - I have heard that it only works if your body is ready; it can bring your cycle back and/or even it out if it's very irregular; but for other people it doesn't do anything. HTH!

Thank you!!! Do you know what dosage of vitex is recommended? Does it interfere with BM supply? TIA!

Sorry, haven't been online much lately!

I took the Vitex capsules about 3 times a day, not sure if that's "right" but that's what I had been told! And from what I've heard, it can cause a small decrease in supply, but usually only if you take it too early (when bfing isn't fully established yet). By 1 year, I wouldn't be worried about that.
