Thanks for the replies
Belle2003, yes i did come across the title of that book in my research, but that's about all. I never looked into it further as i thought it might not really apply to myself.
greenjppixie, well i first dabbled with the vitex some months back, but i thought it was something you only took while your period was happening. No wonder it didn't work for me at the time. Silly me!! The instructions on the container didn't go into great detail, just to take 3 tablets per day before meals. Once my period had more or less finished i stopped taking it, thinking it could have an adverse affect. This time, after more research, i kept taking it and have been on it for a roughly 3 weeks. This is the first time i've not had major spotting after my period has finished. Up until my last period recently i had spotted from one period to the next, which is a major annoyance and i nearly caved in and went to the doctor for a prescription for BC pills.
Anyway, i feel the vitex IS doing something for me, but i'll keep monitoring and i'll post here incase the info helps others. I can't believe the naturopath i was seeing didnt put me onto this herb long ago. Instead i wasted time and money going to see her and nothing she gave did any help.
Yesterday while i was out buying another lot of vitex, i was looking at all the other vitamins etc and i came across the fact that raspberry leaf does a similar thing to vitex.
Best wishes with trying to conceive. I know how trying and emotionally draining that can be. I just wish that i'd known of vitex way back when i was trying to have a baby. Don't give up and don't focus too much on "trying". I've also heard that it's good to stick to an organic diet as the hormones, additives and basic junk they put in our foods and feed to our animals these days prevents some women from conceiving. Take care
