could vitex black cohosh or dong quai regulate periods?

Not likely: Neither of these is likely to provide much help with cycle regulation. In fact dong quai can cause blood thinning making periods even worse.

Vitex: While there are some preliminary studies that show Vitex may be affective in some conditions more study is needed. You should discuss this with your GYN doctor. http://www.uofmhealth.org/health-library/hn-2181002 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12809367
