If we are using for low progesterone-high estrogen problem, this product is fantastic. However, there will be a time when things get normal based completely on the person's body / metabolism/ health. Now when this happens, the "excess" progesterone problem will manifest in the form of deep depression, very dark moods, generalized pain and oh yeah weight gain! Gain may be 3-4 lbs however it will be like dragging a water reservoir while walking! Please take this review seriously and use this product with the help of a doctor only. I am still giving this product 5 stars as it can 'quickly' repair low progesterone issues.

I think this is a great product but I was disapoinnted when I asked to the compagny what they use for their capsules, she told me they use pork and beef gelatin in all their products. I thought they use fish gelatin, Next time I will check closely, I had to throw up the bottle. The brand is "Nature's Way" well not really. If this review is helpful click on YES.

I started taking this a few months ago, knowing I had some sort of hormonal issue affecting my skin, cycle, and moods that needed to be resolved. It didn't help me in the way it helps many women, instead I got extremely emotional right before my period to the point of contemplating suicide. Very scary. A few weeks later I was told by a naturopathic doctor that I may have PCOS, and with some more research I've discovered that PCOS is worsened by taking Vitex. I am grateful that it has helped so many women, but I would not recommend it if you are self-prescribing.

I finished 1 bottle and still continue taking, But so far my cycle still the same 40-80 days still have cramps and breast tenderness. All the PMS symtoms that I feel is still the same but I hope when I finished the 2nd bottle there's improvement. :(

I didn't noticed a big difference after taking it. I purchased these Vitex capsules in hope that it would ease my menstrual cramps, but I didn't got the expected results (I've been taking these in the past 3 months). I'm not sure if I'll keep buying it.

I have been taking this for months and can't tell if it is this product, the evening primrose, or the iodine or all three that have made a difference in my female health. I keep taking it thinking it is doing something, but don't know for sure.

El producto es bueno por las criticas que he leído, pero creo que algunas mujeres somos muy sensibles al vitex. Solo con unos dias tomando 2 cápsulas me comencé a sentir deprimida e irritable, he tenido que interrumpir su uso aunque quiero volver a intentarlo en breve antes de descartarlo. Esto ya me sucedió con otra marca, pero no me ha pasado con todas , así que supongo que su pureza, concentración, etc, juegan un factor muy importante.
