    I bought this extremely inexpensive supplement back in Oct 09 after researching healthy/natural alternatives to birth control pills, provera, chlomid, metformin, etc. and started on the 14th of Oct. I figured what do i have to lose? My last cycle cycle was April 09. I took it as specified, twice a day for 8 wks then down to 1 per day. I, like many women commenting have PCOS. I've never been regular for my entire life. I knew after reading the reviews that i'd have to be patient and allow the supplement to work. I felt all the "tingles" of a forthcoming cycle. Even some cramps and slight bloating during the past few months but nothing happened. Internally i knew something was going on though. 3 months and 8 days later I'm happy to say my cycle started. Jan 23, '10 was a good day!. I actually smiled when i saw it. How weird does that sound? LOL. Only my sisters and mommies2b with PCOS and infrequent cycles know what this feels like. Especially when you are trying to conceive. My next step is to keep a log of my temperature to see if i'm actually ovulating. I'll come back and post again on that issue but i know it's a matter of time. I'm sooooo excited! Maybe i'll have a baby sooner than i thought. At age 40 with no children my clock is ticking, loudly...can you hear it? I keep pushing snooze and took the batteries out but it keeps going off. *smile*....Best wishes to those still waiting. Be patient. It will start.

    I recenlty bought this product after reading all of the great uses it has for women. I've been taking it for 2 wks. I usually take it when I get to work and when I take lunch, the bottle says to take it 2-3 times a day.
    Well, I forgot to take it one day and the next morning I had brown discharge. I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed this side effect, but I immediatley started taking them regularly again and nothing has happened since. If this makes a difference i'll definatley keep using, if I don't notice anything I will wean myself off of it.

      Comments about Nature's Way Vitex Fruit 400mg, Capsules, 100 ea:

      This is my third cycle taking Vitex and it definitely is effective. My cycles were up to 36 days long and the first month on Vitext went down to 30, and the second to 27, still. I am taking 2 pills a day, and will start taking just one now as it says in the bottle. I noticed my ovulation symptoms earlier as well, my cyclic yeast infection that I used to have right after ovulation disappeared, and the lump I got in my breast after stopping birth control seams to be shrinking, and is less painful. I think vitex is getting my hormones in order finally. Really happy !

      Comments about Nature's Way Vitex Fruit 400mg, Capsules, 100 ea:

      I saw online where a lot of women were trying Pregnitude and Vitex together. So I thought I would try it out. After only taking it for 8 days, my cycle started. 2 days early I might add! I had no cramping, breast tenderness, bloating, mood swings or other signs of PMS that came with this cycle. My cycle didn't come with the normal horrible cramping either. I have also been diagnosed with fibroids. I feel really good taking these supplements together. I'm still on my 1st box of Pregnitude, and first bottle of Vitex but I will definitely be buying more!! I hope to see A BFP soon!!

        Comments about Nature's Way Vitex Fruit 400mg, Capsules, 100 ea:

        After coming off of hormonal birth control, my luteal phase was only 9 days long. I read on fertility sites that Vitex and/or b6 can help move ovulation up, thus increasing luteal phase length. Since starting these pills 8 weeks ago, once in the morning, once at night as it says, my luteal phase has increased to 11 days- long enough for a viable pregnancy. I honestly did not believe herbs would be the best thing for me, but it has proven extremely effective. I highly recommend these to anyone who has a LP defect, or is trying to regulate cycles after birth control.

        The pill itself is fairly easy to swallow and has no bad aftertaste.

          Vitex works for me! Long story short, I suffered long periods and this was not normal, started taking Vitex (only, my B6 vitamins haven't came in yet) since 4 days ago as described on the bottle and each day the bleeding got lighter and lighter and now has completely stopped! Yay for Vitex! This is a serious herb from God. Thank you Jesus! I vote 5/5 - try it and see if its for you! Now to see when I get my BFP! Be back again to testify!

            I took this regularly (3 pills a day), and never got my period after going through the entire bottle. For that reason, I would say it is not effective, or wasn't for me. I had no side effects, it just didn't work for me.

                I have been a bcp user since my cycle first started due to the pain of cramps. Between the years of me ranging 21-25 I was on and off with bcp, I was concerned with conceiving, my weight was increasing rapidly, and my cycles were still a little crazy....it would come and then be gone for a very long perid of time (my cycle was my very bad boyfriend) when it did come, it stayed for weeks, some times months, and was very heavy. I went to a specialist and was diagnosed with PCOS and my prolactin levels are high.....all the things you don't want to hear especially when you know that you want to have a child some day. I started looking for natural ways to lower your prolactin levels because $1700 for a MRI on my brain was out of the question. I found Vitex, read the reviews and thought to give it a try. I started taking 3 a day on 4/22/2012, I started spotting the very same day and on 4/25/2012 I had consistent flowing and my cycle went off on the 4/29/2012, I had the biggest smile on my face THANK GOD FOR A REGULAR CYCLE!!! I continued to take 3 a day until 6/3/2012, I decreased it to 2 vitex capsules a day. I have had a cycle every month since starting Vitex and they have all been normal. It feels like Vitex is reversing everything that birth control pills have done to my body and that is a great feeling!!! Im looking forward to my future............I can see children in my future. To God be the glory!!!!!

                  Comments about Nature's Way Vitex Fruit 400mg, Capsules, 100 ea:

                  Anyone who decides to take Vitex should understand this is a GRADUAL supplement. This is not an immediate supplement. I don't think it's fair to dismiss is after only 3 weeks of use, when clearly on the directions for use, it instructs you to take 3 capsules a day for 8 weeks, then 1 capsule a day (for up to a year!).

                  I am using Vitex along with Dong Quai Root (which is also amazing) to regulate my hormones after stopping the evil, evil, horrible birth control pill. I can not express how bad the pill is for you, and how much it messes up your natural body. My hormones were completely off the wall when stopping the pill..it has been about 9 months since stopping.

                  Vitex and Dong Quai have helped regulate my periods, aide my insane hormones which were causing me to have 15 nights a month of terrible sleep, and also help my my hormonal acne which is like clock-work.

                  I am hoping after a little longer with the Vitex (it's been about 2.5 months since I've been taking it), my hormonal acne will not be as nutty, but I can tell you it has already improved compared to when I was not taking Vitex.

                  Good luck, and don't be afraid to dive into the world of herbal medicine. It is really quite amazing!!!

                    I went off the pill at 41 in December after being on for 13 years. I gained 6 pounds in a few months while increasing my workouts and eating exactly the same. I tried taking Dim with no results and after reading about Vitex thought I'd give that a try. I have actually backed off my workouts a bit due to a hip injury. I've been taking it for almost a month now and have lost 5 pounds. It seemed like I gained it all around my stomach and I've never had issues with weight gain there. I finally feel like I'm getting back my old body. If you try it I hope it works for you as well! I've been taking 2 a day as directed and will go do to 1 per day after 8 weeks
