Hrmmm...

So I started Vitex 400mg when my LO was 4 months old (I think).. then I stopped at 6 months because I went on vacation and really just forgot.

I was taking liquid vitex from CD 1 till I had confired O, but I noticed that my EWCM was not very good as it had been in the past, so I started taking vitex from CD 1-12 and then stopping - I O anywhere from CD 17-20 - I have noticed that stopping the vitex about a week before Oing I have really good quality EWCM. Not sure if it is related or not, but just an observation. Are you taking the vitex all cycle or just till you O?

Thanks for the reply. It does make me wonder if it's related.

I had my first PPAF at 8weeks PP and haven't seen her since, so I'm taking it while I twiddle my thumbs and wait around for things to happen.

While I'm waiting I wonder if it is helping to get things regulated or throwing things off....

I haven't had experience with Vitex changing my CM, but probably because I NEVER see any EWCM...its always creamy or watery when fertile.

Thanks, I'm thinking it might be hindering the return of my cycles too...

Of course I lent out my TCOYF to a friend, but I also remember reading about too much EWCM through out cycles being a sign of too much of a hormone too... but it's been so long since I read the book I might be makin' stuff up!

Thanks for sharing your experience.

Have you thought about using Pre Seed?

We used pre-seed while trying to conceive #2 and would totally use it again. I was on 150mg of Clomid for awhile and it just totally dried me out.

The too much EWCM was never an issue before, so I'm not sure about PCOS... though I have always had irregular cycles.

Since I'm not cycling yet I'm not too sure what to make of it all. The waiting game continues. I just wish I knew if I was heading in the right direction or running around in circles.
