BFing and vitex

Postby specialkel » Tue Apr 03, 2012 10:03 pm

Anyone have any experience breastfeeding while taking vitex? How many mg a day were/are you taking? According to kellymom it is often used to boost supply shortly after birth, but I have read elsewhere that it can potentially hurt supply if you had no issues to begin with. I have no supply issues--DD is 4 months old and EBF--and I'm not TTC; I'm taking it for other hormonal reasons. Just wondering what others' experiences were.
