Vitex and AF

Sorry if this is TMI, I just don't have anyone else I could ask!


So I just started taking Fertilitea about a week ago. It contains Vitex but I don't know how much, I don't think it is a lot since it says you can also drink it while on Fertilaid. The tea is the only Vitex I'm taking.


So this is my first AF with Vitex and I'm really surprised but how much I'm bleeding... I started the tea only 1 day before

Hi Daniele,


I don't think it's the vitex. That usually takes a bit longer to have any effect. I think I'd chalk it up to bfing hormones, although it's possible there's something else in the tea that could be doing it, but I doubt it. My first 2 ppaf's were with annovulatory cycles, and they were among the heaviest I've ever experienced. Go figure.


I hope it slows down soon. That's so NOT fun....

Thanks Sunday, I'm glad you don't think it is the Vitex. I thought it would take longer then that to have affect too.

It might be like that if you are lining was pretty thin/not built up too much - KWIM? As PP mentioned, the first few cycles might be anovulatory and /or just different to what you are used to.

HTH :) and yay for AF showing up to get you closer to your journey.
