I am going to start taking vitex soon. The only question I have, is do I take it while I am on my period? Or just take it the whole cycle until I get my period?

Thank you, and heres to hoping it works.

I was told to take Vitex by my HCP and I don't remember her telling me to stop for my period so I'm going to take it straight through.

After I researched it online, I decided to not take it during my period. They said it was better to give your body a break. So I started taking it on CD 6 or 7 and at 10DPO I had a nice

i take it from when my period stops, (cd6 ish) untill ovulation. it can cause miscarriage in some women, and i dont want to risk it.


good luck!

Thanks for the responses!!

So are you guys planning on taking it during the first trimester?
I have read so many mixed reviews. It can cause MC, it can prevent MC...Idk what to think!

I have taken it with all of ttc journies. All the time. I took about 800 mg of dried caps all through-out my cycles and the first few weeks of my pregnacies. I have NEVER heard it can cause m/c in some women?

I have heard it prevents m/c because it can boost progesteron (sp im tired)
