Hi ladies, 


I'm looking for some advice about using vitex. My dd is 20 months old and my period still hasn't returned. She still nurses pretty frequently but for the last two months or so we have reduced the night feeding quite substantially. My DH and I are pretty keen to start ttc number 4. I've read some suggestions about using vitex to get AF back. I was just wondering if anyone has tried this, and what sort of dosage did you take and for how long? I keep reading that you should only take it for the first half of your cycle but being that I don't have a cycle to speak of I have absolutely no idea when/if I'd ovulate (I don't have any OV tests and don't take BBT because of broken sleeping patterns. Any advice would be most gratefully received. Thank you!
