fridaythe13bride:  I started taking it right after I stopped birth control in May to keep my face clear (the last time I went off BC my face was a MESS with hormonal acne) and so far it’s been amazing for that.  I honestly have no idea what else it is used for when TTC… ovulation? menstrual cycle? No clue. I haven’t had a period yet, so if it is supposed to help with that, it hasn’t… haha

I take the brand GNC carries, not Fertility Blend, though.

I started taking it and had strange bleeding… I’m not certain if it was causal or correlation, but I’m afraid to try it again.

I’m taking it now. You’re suppose to stop taking it when you are on your actual period. I did 2 pills a day until ovulation and then down to 1 during my luteal phase. 

I’ve heard its good for a short luteal phase (me) and for those with irregular periods. 

We shall see if it helps me get my BFP this month! But so far i haven’t seen much of a difference in my cycle accept i haven’t had any spotting this month and last month i had some at 4DPO!

It didn’t help me achieve pregnancy, but it definitely shortened my cycle by 5-8 days. My cycle ranged from 38-48 before and now I’m ranging 33-37.

I take it daily – I also take the GNC pure chasteberry/vitex supplement, not any blend.  I’m taking it to see if it helps with a short luteal phase.  While it hasn’t really lengthened much yet (I’ve been taking it for two months), I have stopped spotting before AF comes.  This is my first cycle TTC, so we’ll see – hopefully it helps me get a quick BFP!

fridaythe13bride:  The brand i have is Nature’s Way. Its 400mg per capsule. Yes its suppose to take 3 months for the full benefits to be evident. I take mine at the same time with all my other vitamins. right before bed.

fridaythe13bride:  i drank fertilitea which had vitex/chasteberry in it for about 4 months.  it didnt work well for me.  It caused me to spot alot and caused me tons of stress because I didnt know if the spotting was a light period or just spotting.
