If it worked...
did it work by making you O earlier, or did you O around the same time but just have more days till your AF?

The link to my chart is in my profile, but basically, I have 30 or so day cycles, and I O around CD 20-21...If this supplementation works, am I looking for an earlier O?

It moved my ovulation day a few days earlier, to where I am now back to ovulating on day 14 or 15(instead of day 20 or so) and it extended my LP, and last month it was a perfect 14 days. This month, i'm hoping that LP to be about 8.5 months long...lol

It took a few months for it to get me to this point, but I saw improvement in the first month of using it.Good Luck!!!

Can I ask what dosage you are taking?

I *think* vitamin B (a b-50 complex, actually) along with some traditional Chinese herbs helped me do both!

I used to O on CD 17 or 18, and now I O on 16 or 17. I used to have a 10 or 11 day lp, and now it's 11 or 12 days.

I just take a regular b-50 complex - one dose, once a day.

for me, I used to O around cd17-19 and I had a 8-9 day LP. The first month I tried vitex, I O'ed on CD20 and got pregnant so I guess it lengthened my LP
