    I thought this thread might be useful for anyone who's thinking of taking AC or anyone who has irregular periods & needs some help.

    I started taking AC in Nov. I didn't have a period for 6 months after my mc, then it finally came but didn't comre back. So I found out about AC & thought what harm can it do? It's a herbal tablet so it doesn't do anything to you. Sure enough after taking it for 2 weeks I got my af!!

    That cycle lasted 63 days, god knows how long it would have been if I hadn't taken AC. My last cycle was 40 days, I'm now on cycle day 1 so hopefully it will reduce it significantly again, I may even have a 'normal' 28 day cycle!!

    If you have irregular periods I would strongly reccommend taking agnus castus.

    I'd love to hear other peoples experiences of AC.

    That's really interesting. I was put off ac because I'd read it can lengthen cycles for some.
    Great it's working for you x

    Hi cosmicgirl,

    Ive never heard AC can lengthen cycles, hopefully some more ladies who've taken or are taking AC will post some more positive results. How long are your cycles?

    I'd try taking it to see if it helps, as I said in the thread their a herbal so won't do you any harm & I certainly don't think they will increase your cycles as they are meant to reduce.

    If you do decide to try them only take them up to ovulation & then start again on day 1 of your cycle.

    That's good news pink butterfly, I will defintely keep taking it until I fall pg & then deal with my cycles again after that. But for now I just want shorter cycles so I have more chance of ovulating monthly rather than 2 monthly or longer.

    Hey!

    Jack is an Agnus Castus baby!! We started TTC in Jan 2010 after I came off the pill, by July I was still having 40ish day cycles so decided to take AC my next cycle was 30 days, the next was 28 days and the next AF never came because we got our BFP!! :)

    We're TTC baby number 2 in April and I full intend on taking AC from the beginning this time!

    I'd recommend it to anyone! :) x
