I have heard a lot of bad things about vitex, like making women not ovulate or making them ovulate late in their cycle.

Progesterone: can also cause problems, only take it if you have a confirmed deficiency.

Red Rasp Leaf: I use this, I think it's wonderful, it has helped regulate my cycles and I believe it decreased bleeding after my last birth.

I drink this http://www.traditionalmedicinals.com...maletoner.html you can get it at the grocery store.

Here's some more info I have:

False Unicorn Root
Although there currently is no clinical data on this herb, there is much folklore about it as a female and male fertility promoter. It is said to contain "precursors of estrogen," which could be the premise behind it aiding both sexes. It has been claimed to be a uterine tonic, diuretic, and exhibit anti-inflammatory properties. It possibly also contains progesterone-like constituents, since it apparently is also useful to help prevent miscarriage, delayed periods, and painful periods.

Dong Quai
Dong Quai is an ancient Asian herb. Although not containing any known phyto-estrogens, Dong Quai does seem to act like an estrogen "modulator" which activates or suppresses estrogen receptors within the pituitary to even out the hormones that pulsate to the ovaries and bring on ovulation. Dong Quai is also believed to increase metabolism within the uterus and ovaries and has been attributed with helping to build a receptive uterine lining. Among its many active ingredients, Dong Quai also contains constituents that are thought to have immune enhancing and anti-tumor activity as well. However, due to its vasodialating effect, dong quai should be discontinued when a pregnancy is confirmed.

Hope that helps, good luck!
