I'd like midwives' opinions on this. Is it safe to use vitex throughout the first trimester to prevent miscarriage in a low-progesterone mom? I've read different things on the net about vitex. I've read that vitex should be taken from menstruation to ovuluation, but I've also read that it's okay to take it until pregnancy is confirmed, but then it must be stopped. I've also read that some women have used it to prevent miscarriage in the first trimester. Which is correct?
Would it be better to take vitex from menstruation to ovulation and then use natural progesterone cream from ovulation until next menstruation, but continue use if pregnancy is confirmed?
