10/28/13: I have two daughters and have lost four babies through unexplained miscarriages. After seeing five different doctors and being given a clean bill of health by each one, I was at the end of my rope.
When I found this website I had been toying with the idea of using vitex to help with my low progesterone and short luteal phases, but didn’t have the courage to begin using it. With the help of this community, I began with 200mg of vitex and gradually increased to 1200mg over the course of a few months. The changes were gradual at first, with my post-ovulation temperatures gradually getting higher, my pre-menstrual spotting lessening, and my luteal phases lengthening from 8 to 15 days. After being on the vitex for six months, my cycle looked absolutely perfect and the next month I was surprised to find myself pregnant! I am now 20 weeks along with another healthy baby girl!
