Hi Ladies<br><br>
I had a miscarriage at 8.5 weeks last month and am eager to start trying again. I have read conflicting things about the benefits of maca and vitex, and whether they should be taken together.<br><br>
I have normal cycles (except now...still spotting from miscarriage), and didn't have trouble conceiving my 14month old or this recently lost baby.<br><br>
Will taking one or the other (or both) help my cycle return to normal quicker, and help conceive again?<br><br>
PS. I forgot to mention that I'm still nursing (4-6 times a day, including the night. Sigh).

I'm sorry to hear of your loss.<br>
In case you didn't see it and want to come join us, there's a thread for TTC nursing mamas. A few of us have done Vitex and/or Maca.<br><br>
I personally, had been taking Vitex since my 1st ppaf came back in December on the advice of a MW friend. I don't have a BFP to show for it. At first, I really liked it, I O'd early in my cycle in Feb and my LP, while still too short, was okay for returning fertility. <i>However</i>... my cycles have also started getting REALLY wonky, way more than they were when they first returned and I had my progesterone levels drawn and they were way too low. I have no idea if that's because of the Vitex or not, but I stopped taking the Vitex last week because, even if it isn't hurting, it isn't helping.<br><br>
That said, I've heard loads of success stories with it, so I dunno.<br><br>
