What does it actually do? How much should someone take? Does it matter what brand you get? And does it interact or interfere with other medication (such as synthroid - thyroid medication)?

hi megan. Vitex is a herbal supplement. It has been used for hundreds of years to regulate female hormones. If you have irregular periods, not ovulating etc it can help. I have been using it for two cycles and have had two periods. Before that I had no period since June so it seems to be working for me although I am not pregnant yet. It does have a high success rate. I take 4 x 400mg tablets a day, two in morning and two in evening. It can be bought in liquid form. Most health shops will have it. you can also buy in online. I am not too sure if it can be taken with other meds. Check out the internet, there is loads of information regarding it. Check out this link : Hope this helps

I have been taking Fertility Blend for a month now. It contains vitex, but combines L-arginine + Green tea + Chasteberry(Vitex) = 1080 mg,
Do you think i could take the vitex pills with the fertility blend? It is a natural herb, but cant find anything about overdosing on it or side effects of taking too much?
What do you think?

chasteberry and vitex are the same herb. Green tea is supposed to be very good too. I have not heard of overdosing or side effects so I think its probably ok. Why dont you try the vitex and green tea seperately. I have read somewhere that if your cycles are regular then they can become irregular when taking vitex. I am of the opinion at the moment that nothing is going to work. Maybe its all down to mother nature after all. Have you been trying to conceive for long?
