Not for everyone
Posted by Reviewer1120434 on Dec 10, 2009
This is a good-quality product, but I have learned recently that Vitex is not for everyone. It effects levels of dopamine in your system, and can interfere with drugs that treat schizophrenia and parkinson's disease. It's also a bad choice if you're on antidepressants such as wellbutrin which also effect dopamine. I wish it weren't so...I had a remarkable improvement in my PMDD symptoms while I was taking it.
Some change, but too early to tell

I am taking Vitex to help lengthen my luteal cycle which is quite short, about seven or eight days. I haven't been through a whole new cycle yet so hard to know if it is having an effect yet. However I have noticed an increase in libido so it is possible this is from taking Vitex.

I've been using this product few months now and I've been mostly pleased. I have not had menstrual pains, mood swings or break outs anymore. One minus there is... This product shortened my circulation from 30 days to 24 days. I will buy again.
It is good to "jump-start" your hormones

I went off depo-provera but didn't get my period for months and I was terribly sick, bloated and PMS. Someone mentioned on a forum that vitex will help. I started taking it and two weeks later, I finally got my period and it balanced my cycles. I continued and noticed that I become more forgettable and it affected my job so I stopped taking it and my memory returned.
Somewhat works for PCOS
Posted by Reviewer2765237 on Sep 28, 2015
I have PCOS with very irregular and sometimes absent periods. Vitex gives me periods but it didn't regulate the cycles or made me ovulate. Used 1 capsule per day because I'm very sensitive to all things that affect hormone balance. Good thing is that Vitex probably made me slim down a few kilos and made me less hairy. My weight is already within normal range. With 1 capsule I didn't notice any side effects whatsoever. Vitex is cheap to try to IF you have time and patience.

These worked really well for the PMT, however by the second month I started spotting and then I read that these can lessen the efficacy of the contraceptive pill! Stink one, cause they were helping! So if you're on the pill beware this may happen, but def worth a try if you're not because if they do help they're an affordable way to get relief!
So far so good

I have not been taking this long enough to see the results as some have claimed. I am happy with how fast I got it . I will give it more time to write a accurate review. I have noticed my breast have gotten firmer. Also, the pills are easy to take and have no after taste.
I have PCOS.

I have only been taking this product for 3 weeks and have yet to wait for the positive results. I have not had my period in over a year and according to this product it should help regulate it. I have not had any negative side-effects so far.
Still waiting, but good results already

I have only been taking vitex for about two weeks now (that's why I only gave it three stars), but so far I can say that my skin has improved and that I feel better over all. The service was excellent - I received my order within a few days and the prices are *very* reasonable. I would definitely buy from iherb again - they are my first choice now when it comes to herbal treatment.
No noticable results - but not enough time
Posted by raeannewright on Dec 06, 2008
The product says that you only see results with extended use, and you're supposed to take 3 a day - I'm only taking 2 so far. Obviously then only 3 weeks is not enough time to notice any difference in my period.
