Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP 11DPO (VITEX)!!!

I'm so excited to finally be able to share my BFP story! Here is some background info first. I came off of BC pills 7 months ago. Since then, I have started charting my BBT, which made me realize that I have very irregular cycles and erratic BBT. My first two cycles were somewhat normal (35 ish days) with ovulation. Then I had an anovulatory cycle that I induced with Provera after 55 days. I was hoping that my cycle would become regular after inducing AF with Provera. But after 40 days and no sign of ovulation (I was using OPK every day), I finally decided I needed to try Vitex. I had read about it online and knew that it helped regulate women with very irregular and long cycles. After exactly two weeks of taking Vitex AF showed up. I started the new cycle with confidence and started using my CBFM and OPK on top of that. Then days went by again with no ovulation in sight. I thought Vitex wasn't working for me and felt very discouraged. I still continued taking Vitex but I stopped using OPK from CD 25-33. At CD 33 I started getting really fertile CM. It stretched several inches and I had butt loads of it (TMI). This made me pee on an OPK stick and it showed POSITIVE!!! That was with diluted evening urine too. I had positive OPKs for the next two days and we BDed a few times. I got my BFP at 11 days DPO and a darker BPF today at 13 DPO!!! For those of you with long cycles, please don't lose hope and continue checking with OPK. My DH and I would not have BDed if I hadn't checked to see if I ovulated bc DH was very sick days before I ovulated. I know it's long, but I wanted to give hope to those with long and irregular cycles!!

I'm PCOS and have very long cycles/absent periods. I get it only when I induce with provera. I started vitex 10 days back and I'mnot sure if its working or not. We are TTC since 2 years+. Please share what dosage you took of vitex?    So happy to hear abou your BFP! God bless! :)

onlyfaith5: I took Nature's Way (from GNC).  I started off taking 1200mg and wasn't ovulating.  After I upped my dosage to 1600mg, I ovulated a few days later.  I took two in the morning right when I woke up and two and night right before going to sleep.   Hope Vitex helps you get a BFP too!! :)
