clairykoo:  I did take Vitex to help lengthen my LP. I began taking it about 2(ish) month before TTC and took it my entire cycle. I did have my LP lengthen from 10 to 12 days the first month we began TTC, but I cant say it was the Vitex. Please follow the directions and stop talking once you ovulate. I took my entire cycle and when I became pregnant  our second cycle, had to try to wean off. I lost that pregnancy at 6.5 weeks. I can’t determine if it was because of the Vitex, but there is a possibility that the dramatic drop in Progesterone once I stopped led to the pregnancy not being supported. I didn’t take it again and was lucky enough to conceive the following cycle and have had no complications (*knock on wood*) and am now 21 weeks. 

I did use Red Raspberry Leaf tea (tasty!), but it’s not recommended during the first tri because it could cause uterine contractions. I still drank one cup a day while TTC, but went to every other day during the TWW. Haven’t had since becoming pregnant again.
