| | PCOS and Vitex
Hello everyone. My name is Maheen. i am 23 years old. i have had PCOS since i was 13 years old but didnt really know anything about the condition. I have always had irregular periods, a lot of facial hair, weight gain, and various parts of my body which has skin darker than the rest. In 2008, i was just 20 years old, i went through a cystectomy. The surgury was a major one. The cyst removed was about 3 pounds and the size of a small football and was growing from my right ovary. the ovary got saved but a small piece of my right fallopian tube had to be removed.
My periods have always been irregular. my last period was in August of 2011, and that was because my doc had me take provera to induce it. i have taken a few pregnancy test just to make sure i wasnt already pregnant and they all came out negative. i have a lot of knowledge about PCOS, but i have never heard of Vitex.
well, i have been married now for almost 3 years and its about time for us to have babies. i have lost a lot of weight knowing very well that it helps in the conception process. I also take Metformin, 1000 mg 2 times a day. i was on the pill for 4 years. i stopped taking it in May of 2011. i was just reading online to see what is a good natural remedy to help conceive and stumbled upon Vitex. I have been only reading good things about it and want more opinions. Have any of you guys used Vitex or are currently using vitex and have success with it? and if so, where can i find it.
Any help to help me through this hard time is much appreciated.
