The Vitex Experiment: Month Two


I have now been taking Vitex supplements for two months (wow, where does time go?). I am currently taking three 400mg capsules a day (with meals).

This all started because I was having trouble regulating my postpartum hormones.  Read about it here.

According to my research it takes three months for the Vitex to build up in your system and have an effect, so technically it is still a bit early yet to see full results.

I would also like to point out that this experiment is in no way scientific, as I have no quantifiable proof any improvementioned is due to the Vitex but…

Things have been so much better!  NO MORE MOOD SWINGS! That’s right. This past month I have found myself to be not only more stable, but generally more content and happy.  I feel more calm and in control. I would like to say I feel more like the normal me, but I think I actually feel even better than that!

My milk production remains unaffected, mind you the girls are eating solids now so I don’t nurse as much anymore. I have noticed no other side effects good or bad from taking the pills.

I have to say that for the low price of $10 for a month’s supply in am definitely willing to keep this up if it helps stabilize my hormones. Sadly, I really have no way of knowing at this point if it’s the Vitex or just me. Since you do have to let it build up in your system in can’t just stop taking it to find out (well, I could, but I won’t lol).

Stay tuned for the final installment of the experiment once in get to month three.  Here’s hoping it’s a bright sunshiny day 🙂

  1. Glad to hear Vitex is working for you. Thank you for sharing. And even if it’s just a placebo effect, it’s worth it for $10 /month! 🙂
