No: There is some scientific evidence that vitex agnus-castus (chaste tree berry) may help with pms symptoms and cyclic mastalgia (breast pain) but no studies showing that it helps women with ovulation disorders. If you have no periods you aren't ovulating (releasing an egg) every month. If you're not trying to conceive see a gynecologist, if you're trying to conceive see a fertility specialist (REI)
