    Has anyone had good or bad experiences with this? I've just read up about them and thought they sounded amazing, and bought some, aha!
    Apparently it helps balance hormones naturally, helps produce progesterone and helps you OV regularly, which I don't OV every month so hope it'll work. I've read so many good reviews on it...

    Link for anyone who's intrested -

    I can't open the link - Vitex as in Agnus Castus? This stuff is fab, I used it with my daughter when my cycles were 60+ days long. The first month I used it my cycle dramatically reduced in length and I fell pregnant :)

    I took it this cycle too and ovulated two days earlier. Hoping for a BFP but will know either way if it's been successful this time when I test next week X

    I got my BFP on my 2nd or 3rd month of using Agnus Castus after TTC unsuccessfully for a few months. My cycles had dropped to 24-26 days after having my son and first month on AC it went back to my normal 28 days.

    Yeah that's right, I took it from CD1 up to CD14 - I think you can take it for the whole cycle, but I've always stopped at CD14 x

    Yes I think so. Pregnacare is vitamins whereas AC is herbal (I think!) x

    I took vitex agnus castus for 4-5 months (alongside conception vitamins). It did help to regulate my cycles after mc but then it suddenly had no effect so I stopped. I took it all cycle, some information suggests it is helpful to take right through tri 1 as well. It could have just been coincidence or it could have been affecting my cycle, I don't know.
