Progesterone won't help you to ovulate (release an egg) - if you're trying to conceive with irregular periods or no periods, see a fertility specialist for help. ...Read more

I've heard of women using femaprin (vitex) pills for anovulation. Do they work?

No evidence it helps: 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 aren't ovulating regularly and are trying to conceive the safety of vitex when you're pregnant is unknown, so you should stop it when you get a positive pregnancy test if you conceive. ...Read more

Why could malnutrition cause anovulation?

Why could malnutrition cause anovulation?

Stress response: Malnutrition, whether due to famine, intestinal disease, anorexia nervosa, or extreme dieting, is physically stressful to the body, and results in high levels of cortisol. High cortisol levels suppress the pituitary hormones that trigger ovulation. This is beneficial in the long run because it lowers birth rates in times of famine, and reduces the number of deaths from starvation. ...Read more

I hope this helps! ...Read more
