How long did it take most of you for Vitex to work?
I started taking it on 10/24 and i havent seen any result of it .. should i take something else with it?

That would really depend on what your issue is...what is it that you are trying to correct with Vitex? As well it isn't a quick fix, sounds like you have been on it less than a cycle.

vitex experience

Postby praying4five » Fri Nov 18, 2011 10:23 am

i used vitex after having 3 week cycles and then being on daily progesterone .

i thought it wasn't working after about 2 months and then i stopped taking it, then things were worse w/my cycle - finally got off progesterone and cycle is perfect! after a battle of nearly 3 years! i also Od that first month after not Oing for many many months!


i think the Vitex kicked in and i didn't need the progesterone. what i've read is that Vitex actually increases the progesterone (not the estrogen) - i could be wrong - but it's what i read somewhere.

i too have read mixed reviews and will not take it again unless my cycles mess up again. i have a friend that takes it religiously and says her cycles are perfect - also helped regulate her teen daugthers' cycles.

i get tempted to take it again to see if it would strengthen my cycle and my O - eggs, etc. but don't want to chance it while my cycle is good:)
