There’s no question about it: food is important for all aspects of life, and fertility is no exception.

  • I just had blood work done and it showed that I have too much prolactin. So taking Vitex would be beneficial for me, correct?? Because it would raise my dopamine which would lower prolactin.

  • I was ovulating on cd19/20 and having a normal 28 day cycle. I believe I have a short luteal phase and started taking vitex. This video helped confirm a lot of my suspicions. However I’ve been on vitex for two cycles and the second cycle I ovulated on cd 14 which I was thrilled about, but now I’m only 8 dpo and a week before my expected period and I’ve had some light to mild spotting. I know it could be implantation, but I was curious can Vitex cause you to have a shorter cycle?

  • Hi there. I just had a natural miscarriage at 6 weeks:(. Would Vitex be a good supplement to take to help get my hormones and period back in line? Also I’ve heard it can increase progestorone which is good to help minimize miscarriage?

  • Can raspberry tea mess with the hormonal system in a negative way too? I started taking coq10, magnesium and raspberry leaf tea and my boils have come back. I have also quit caffeine recently so could it maybe be the physical stress of that causing it? I’m so lost. I worry that if I stop one of the things and it goes away, it could be a red herring and maybe the thing I stopped was harmless
