Can using vitex for perimenopausal symptoms be the same as hrt?

In brief: No

Vitex is a worthless herb supplement.
Hrt is actual estrogen, which will postpone menopausal symptoms until such time as you stop the hrt. There is difference of opinion as to whether hrt should be used or not. Check w/your physician.
