Hi ladies,

Something happened to me this cycle that never happened before in my life, and I just had to let you know about it! Last cycle was extremely long and anovulatory, cause me a lot of stress, ugly broken out skin, and random bleedings in between. UGH! I did a bit of reading on Vitex (or chasteberry), how it naturally regulates your periods over time and makes the bleeding easier and lighter, without any harmful hormones and such. Since my AF is always super painful and overly bloody, with clothes/sheets that always end up stained one way or anoher, I decided to give Vitex a try. I didn't expect it to start working quite yet, as I read that it takes a few months to kick in. I used it for the past 2 weeks.

So AF showed her face 5 days ago - for real now, because I felt some cramping this time and the usual AF symptoms. But... the cramps were so much milder, and I didn't have a single "heavy" day yet! Even the two "normal flow" days didn't last the entire day - only in the afternoon I had (TMI) passed a few bloody clots, but nothing amounting to the crazy heavy ones I used to get all my life! Could it be it? Vitex? I haven't taken it for too long, but it's certainly an interesting coincidence.

I think I'm definitely going to continue taking it and see how my next cycle turns out. Just wanted those of you with really heavy/painful periods to know that this might help you out. Google it if you're interested, hopefully this will help someone!
