Clomid + Vitex?

Postby southernbelle » Fri Oct 30, 2015 6:24 pm

Has anyone taken the two together and had a favorable outcome? lol I'm not sure if Vitex is gentle enough to take with the Clomid. I should mention that next cycle I'll also be doing Follistim injections. TIA!

I did some reading on this before I started clomid because I wanted to give vitex another try now that my main problem is dealt with. But *everything* i've read says clomid and vitex are a big no-no. Mainly because vitex is a hormone altering herbal supplement and clomid is a hormone altering drug, the two will conflict. While clomid is trying to trick your brain into blocking and producing specific hormones to trigger ovulation, vitex will be busy trying to get everything balanced and working the way it should be, which could ultimately render the clomid ineffective. Or just *really* screw up your hormones lol.
