Vitex?? works fast?

Ladies I been having 41 day cycles so I started taking liquid vitex a little over a week ago. Today is cd15, 2 days now having ewcm. And now I have a sharpe pain on my right side, also took a opk (cheap one) and I swear it was positive! Can vitex work that fast? I feel like I'm making it all up!!! Anyone?

According to what I read (I also take vitex) it takes 2-3m to fully take effect. Now idk if that's just an average based on users or if that's actually how long it takes.

Yea that's what I thought but I'm having every o symptom. So I was just wondering if anyone used it and knows it shortened their cycle? Thanks for replying!

I took it for a few weeks and usually only o every other month but this month I o'ed! I think it does work fast. Now af is visiting, she came 5 days early 28 day cycle. And she's STILL here (6 days!) I usually have short ones so I guess vitex did that too...?

Good to know I just started it so i can't say if there's any differences yet. Do you ladies prefer any particular brand of vitex?

I have read it's best to take vitex in morning and to stop after ovulation. On my bottle of vitex it says pregnant women should not take it. I have only taken it this cycle. I had my 1st smiley face on OPK today which is cycle day 10.i think it increased my libido and CM also but even if this is psychological hopefully it helps me get my BFP. So far vitex rocks (except I have to take mine in the evening because of heartburn)

Helen1981. I also have pcos, I talked with my doctor and was told take it straight through and stop once you receive your bfp. I have had a regular 30-32 day cycle for the last 6 months and that is from a 45-120 day cycle before. Good Luck Ladies!!!!!:)

Hey girls. I'm on CD2 & bought the pill form of Vitex yesterday & took 1 last night... But after researching (prob TOO much) & hearing every possible situation/experience I still can't decide if it should be taken from cd1- or all the way thru the cycle. I've read that it can bring on bleeding 7-10 days into taking it but the last thing i want to do is start bleeding again & ruin my chances for a usable cycle. Those of you who have taken the pills how many a day did you start off with -- heard 1, 2, 3... What's best?
