I was alway have a 28 days cycle, them after my TR I decided to try Vitex to give me a boost .I took it for 1 1/2 months, I did not see my period on m'y expected date. Instead I was spotting for 13 days . My temp was like a roller coaster, I had all the pregnancy symptoms, especially sore nipples. Then I took a hpt it was negative , then a blood test BFN my doctor had to put me in PROVERA to get my bleeding on track.I won't never mess with that Vitex again.

I am with you. I once saw a Dr Oz show in which he was touting Vitex saying its so great for relieving PMS symptoms and getting your cycles normal. It was the biggest mistake I ever made and threw me off worse than ever. Never again.

I am a big believer in taking a multi vitamin, CoQ-10 and vitamin D. Those to me, are really "safe" and shouldn't throw off your cycle at all.

Really we have to be SO careful with certain herbs/supps...they can do more harm than good sometimes. I learned my lesson after taking that Vitex too.

XOXO
