I am looking to see if Chaste Berry will balance my hormones although I am not TTC, I am nursing a 35 month old (who nurses like an infant! :P). There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of studies but I checked out reviews on amazon and some people said it made them depressed and suicidal which freaks me out. Does anyone have experience?

I'm taking it now. My LO is 8 weeks andis EBF. My MW siggested I take it to help reduce my post partum bleeding and I've had no problems. I've only been taking it for a few days though. Of all my research I've never heard of it making anyone depressed or suicidal.
