BFP on vitex?? Need some hope!

Postby AndiA108 » Tue May 17, 2016 5:56 am

Coming here for some hope. Seems like we've been trying forever. I know a lot of women have tried longer but I'm definitely starting to get discouraged. I say, I because my dh is being more positive than I am about it. He keeps saying it will happen. Anyway, I decided to start vitex mid cycle this current cycle. I'm due for AF soon and keep getting BFN so I'm counting myself out. But hoping if I stay on vitex through this cycle it will do the trick!

Anyone have success with it? Really trying to stay positive I need some hope!

Thank you so much southernbelle!! So happy for you! This gives me hope. I see you didn't take vitex while on clomid. Any particular reason? Just called the doc to see if I should go up on Clomid. Might got up to 100mg next month if I don't get the sticky bean this month.

Vitex is supposed to help regulate your hormones so it might cancel out the effect of the Clomid (or other fertility meds).

hi southern belle, one more question. I see your BFP you took baby aspirin. What days did you take it? Throughout your cycle? Or on certain days?

My ob instructed me to start taking it after my last loss in August. I took it every day including during most of my first trimester.

I had a mc in 2014, found out I have pcos last year in March and tried and tried to get pregnant. I finally ordered some vitex and fell pregnant the first cycle. It ended in mc last month but I kept taking the vitex and am now pregnant again! 6w5d. I believe 100% it was vitex!

Question - what dosage are you taking it? I got my first 2 BFPs taking vitex and you are apparently supposed to steadily increase the dosage up to a certain point...
