Have any of you girls had any success taking Vitex to regulate your cycles to start ovulation to get pregnant. I was diagnosed with PCOS and hypothyroidism at 19. I take a Synthroid pill every morning for my thyroid, but other than that my wonderful Doctor wasn’t overly concerned as I am at a heathy weight and didn’t have any other symptoms other than higher levels of testosterone. My periods have always been out of whack. I’ll have a 29 day cycle then have a 47 day cycle. I had an appointment with my doctor this morning and she wants me to try Vitex to jump-start ovulation. Has anyone had success with Vitex?! Thanks so much!

I have been taking vitex for the past 4 cycles and it’s been amazing for me! No PCOS or any other issues that I know of, but my cycles were SO LONG once they returned post-partum. I wouldn’t ovulate until CD 30-something. Since I’ve been taking it, I now O anywhere from CD 12 to cd 16! My first month on it, I didn’t O until cd 19, but it’s been perfect since then. I also tale Licorice Root to help O as well though, so I’m not sure which does what. But together, they work very well for me! The vitex I take in varied doeses throughout the month, and then the licorice root I just take cd 5-9 (like as if it were clomid).

I’ve been taking vitex for the past four months to help with my luteal phase and apparent case of endometriosis (no symptoms but ultrasounds show it’s likely there). It has helped tremendously, but did take about three months to see improvement. I no longer spot for two weeks before my period is due and no more cramping or pms symptoms during my period.

I used vitex before when I got off bc to help regulate things. It took a few months for it to work tho.
