Yes: Vitex is a wonderful tonic that helps to regulate the menstrual cycle, often helps pms and may enhance fertility, it is safe to take on a daily basis. While the article I am linking advises taking it 3x/day, i find once a day is usually adequate: http://www.Susunweed.Com/article_vitex_redmoonherbs.Htm.

Maybe: There have been no studies regarding this medication. Having said that, at your age you have time on your side and can try herbal supplements if you like for short amounts of time. I would only try it for 3-6 months before moving on to better studied ovulation induction medications (prescribed by a doctor).

A 24-year-old female asked:

Is Vitex safe to take if I'm dealing with light spotty periods? I'm 24 years old and a virgin.

Nobody really knows: Vitex is not a medication approved by the FDA, so Vitex products are probably not tested for effects and side effects like real medicines are. That means nobody really knows what effects Vitex products have, and how accurate their dosing is, and how true or false their claims are. If made by a large, national brand, their products' quality control might be adequate. Buyer beware.
