so I started taking Vitex this cycle to regulate my progesterone which I haven't been told by a doctor is low but I thought so given my low, fluctuating temps, irritability, insomnia, etc. my cycle is typically 30-32 days and I ovulate around day 17. This month I didn't track ovulation but I think I ovulated on feb 13 Given my symptoms. his week I started getting weird symptoms almost like preg symptoms such as stomach twinges, leukkhorea, intense stomach cramping and uterine contractions, headaches, joint aches, fatigue and insomnia at random hours and breast pain mostly on the sides. Then today, in CD 26 all the symptoms seemed to disappear and all I have now are stomach cramps like AF. I'm assuming I'm getting AF tomorrow or the following day but does Vitex really give you random preg symptoms right after ovulation? Is it because of increase in progesterone?? Please help!
