This is great information! I'm wondering about the original question-- how long have you been trying to become pregnant, and what other methods are you using?

Hey anon,

Dr. Carrie Jones responded to your question .... Here's what she had to say ...

Chaste Tree (otherwise known as Vitex) is an amazing herb for women. It helps hormone balance, is great for PMS, and is often used for fertility help! I prefer the tincture or liquid form taken in the morning. Careful as it does have a very strong taste! I do use the capsules and find them also helpful and sometimes more convenient especially if you are travelling. The tea is nice but not strong enough. If you are using fertility assistance medications such as clomid, I would not advise that you use them at the same time.
