After having 3 miscarriages, my prolactin level shot up so high my gynacologist could not explain. I was placed on parlodel bromocriptine for more than a year, but no improvement. Each time I stop taking parlodel, the prolactin goes high. In July 2013, my gyn. decided to place me on Carbagoline but I said no, that I was tired. I told her about vitex and that I want to give it a try. Though she didn’t give me a go ahead, I started taking vitex since September till date and so far, I have taken it for 2 months now. I had to do another hormonal profile test and to my surprise, my prolactin level did not shoot up this time around. The last test I did was in June/July 2013 and the result showed 75.4ng/mL. The recent prolactin test I did on November 2nd, 2013 showed 35.75ng/mL. Waow! even my gyn. was speechless. Though it is still high but taking vitex for just 2 months has drastically reduced it. My gyn. just said “if it works for you, please continue; I will like to do a research on vitex someday”. I have not stopped taking vitex; I am going to continue for the next 6 months and see it work permanently on me. Thanks a lot Dalene, Hethir, JC Cash and all the entire team at Natural Fertility shop. I just purchased more products to help boost my fertility.
Update 4/15/14-A note from Dalene: Funmi has been given the go ahead by her doctor to try to conceive for the first time in years, because her prolactin levels have reduced enough to do so. Go Funmi!
My prolactin level keeps reducing by the day. Thank God for Vitex liquid extract. The last time I shared my success story in November 2013, my prolactin result was 35.75ng/mL. I just had another test result this month of April 2014, It has reduced to 33.3ng/mL.
Update 7/3/15 –
It is with great joy that I write to inform you that I am almost 3 months pregnant. I am so happy. Yes it has been a long journey but thank God I finally got pregnant. The fetus is visible and heartbeat strong. Thanks to everyone and everything that made this happened. I can say I have been on Fertilica supplements for more than 2 years and have been consistent with it.
