Does anybody know for sure if Vitex (Chaste Tree Berry) is safe to take while nursing? I'm nursing my almost 17 month old but wanting my hormonal wackiness to ease and my fertility to come back so I've started taking Vitex.

Help?

Hi. I used Vitex tincture while nursing (still nursing!) my DS and had wonderful results for my irregular, long, anno cycles. As far as I know it is safe while nursing.

fwiw, i am preg with #2 after four months of Vitex. And that was while DS was exclusively breastfed on demand (no solids). Nursing all night long, too. I never wanted to wean to get pregnant. No way...

Good luck!
