I'm in the same boat...it's frustrating. Nothing has worked for me. I've been trying vitex and parsley tea. I get crampy, but that's about it. I just made a doc appointment, so I'm just trying not to go insane until then...one month away! Good luck to you, and if you hear any tips to pass on, let me know!

So you used 1200mg of vitex in the morning? I will try that. I've been taking it throughout the day as well. I haven't been temping, because I haven't seen my period yet since my last pregnancy! (He is almost 13 months) I used clomid for that pregnancy, and I'm anxious to start again. Apparently my ovaries are egg hoarders. :roll: Those bitches. :wink:

Yep! I did some further research on vitex and it says take entire dose first thing in a.m. before food (wont upset your stomach) just give you burps that taste herby. You should start temping first thing tomorrow so you can see if you have a rise in temps from the vitex! Im curious for you

I know I can't do BC but since I finally O'd CD116 or whatever it was I have my provera script in hand still!! So hope I don't ever need to use it but am armed and ready if I need to.

Tee increase your dose or decrease your dose. Your body is responding to the steady dose with a negative feedback mechanism.

increase vitex for 5 days stop and wait, if no o, increase for another 5 stop and wait. if you need it after o, it should be ok, but make sure O is confirmed.

your body needs to detect a surge to O.

vitex only works for me when my bmi is under 32. its a bit of a catch 22 with me. i decresed and increased the dose for a week at a time and it didnt work. im going to start it again today like i did before with my bfp cycle with my daughter 800mg per day and see what happens. im cd 22 and my opks have just started to give me a darker line so a few more days maybe. vitex is a funny one works for some and others it doesnt.
