Not take: There's nothing useful for you to 'take' (at least without prescription) at home: healthy diet and moderate exercise is a good start. There's probably no harm in using vitex but there's also no benefit, I'd stay away from it. ...Read more

And can u have a skipped period if u stop taking the chaste tree berry supplement after taking  taking it for a while . Then start taking it again?

Unpredictable: There are so many reasons for skipping a period (pregnancy is the most common), maybe your chasteberry sup could be involved.

How effective are the chaste tree supplements to aid irregular periods?

See a reproductive endocrinologist to find out why you're irregular, whether ttc or not. ...Read more
