TTC with Vitex - Questions?

Postby DIAZW » Mon Jan 23, 2012 7:11 am

Hi all,

Just wondering for those of you that have tried/are on Vitex - what were your initial reactions to it?

I started taking mine as soon as I got it which was CD14 last cycle, about 2 days before O. I started taking it to try increase my LP but the first cycle my LP was back down to 8 or 9 days after being 11-12 days with B6! This cycle my hormones have felt much more 'regulated' up to O but now I am having some major AF symptoms already at 6DPO (spotting 4&5DPO, cramping, mood swings). How long until things settle themselves out with the Vitex? I thought it was supposed to help decrease PMS symptoms?

Any recommendations?

I'm currently on 1 tablet of Femzone per morning with my MultiVitamin.

Each tablet contains:
Vitex agnus-castus Fruit (Chaste Tree) -500mg
Paeonia lactiflora Root (Peony) - 700mg
Matricaria recutita Flower (Chamomile) - 672mg
Zingiber officinale Rhizome (Ginger) - 170mg
Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6) 16mg
ME (Di): 30 | DH: 31 | TTC #1
Went off BCP June 2010
Started charting June 2011 ~ short LP?
BFP March 2012 but MC @22DPO
IVF Cycle #1 - May 16.
29/05 14 Eggs retrieved, 9 fertilised - 2 transferred. Zero made it to freeze.
03/06 2x5day blasts transferred.
10DPO - :bfp:!!
15DPO - Beta 173 but... Started bleeding and spotting
19DPO - Beta 778 .... Still bleeding and spotting
21DPO - Beta 2117 .... Still bleeding and spotting but saw 2 tiny dots on scan. They're both still there
26DPO - Beta 11689 ..... Bleeding tapering off - saw one little sac on the scan and lining very thin. Stick little bean!

7w+1 - Heartbeat!!!!!!!!!!!! :jump:
