A little about myself... I've had normal menstrual cycles all the way up to a year and a half ago. My cycles used to range from 28-35 days. I would experience severe cramping and heavy bleeding. I have yet to figure out why that has changed, but I took it upon myself to try and fix the problem (I have grown tired of the waiting game)! I am currently having 45 + days w/ barely any PMS symptoms. It is quite annoying I may add! I love to do research and so I came across this really awesome herb called Vitex (chaste tree... it actually has a few different names). Anyways... I read it helps with menstruation irregularities by balancing your hormones. I figured herbs are good for the body so why not try this... it couldn't hurt me right (my body is already screwed up
) Today is Tuesday October 9th... I started taking it Friday October 5th (5 days ago). After I started taking Vitex... my breasts began to get sore. Last night I woke up with some moderate cramping, which I still have tonight because I got my period.
I've never ever been happy to get my period until now, lol! I got it on the 45th day. This is actually kinda early for me since I've only had 2 periods since July 4th! The first one I got around Aug. 25... and this is the second one (Oct. 9th). I am going to continue to take Vitex hoping it brings me back to a 28 - 30 day cycle. I am in the progress of trying to get my body fertile again... in hopes of conceiving a year from now.
I am also taking prenatal vitamins, fiber vitamins, and biotin.
If anyone has questions don't hesitate to ask me... also if anyone has their own personal experience with Vitex I would love to hear about it! Thank you!
