    Found this...
    The current WHO recommendation for women of fertile age, whether pregnant or not, is that their vitamin A intake should not exceed 10,000 IU per day or up to 25,000 IU per week, and that giving a single dose greater than 25,000 IU is not advisable. This recommendation is based on concern about toxicity. High doses of vitamin A cause birth defects. The foetus is most vulnerable in the first two months of pregnancy but it is not certain that higher doses later in pregnancy are safe. Beta-carotene is the safest way to supplement pregnant women, because it is not teratogenic.

(yaay - i hope so - we have been TTC #2 for 9 months now. Have not tested yet). Any advice please girls?
    Hi SHazz,

    Wow, lets hope you are pregnant. Have you done a test since you postered?
    Few bits of info for you - vitex is supposed to regulate you cycles. Some women may find it helps them ovulate regularly or that it 'normalises' the amount of days after ovulation - I have heard that if the phase after you ovulate is short say, 10 -12 days it may be hard to sustain a pregnancy - hence if this time is more like around 14 days this is supposed to be the 'norm'. Maybe this is what it has done for you?

    I know for myself it stops the early spotting just before AF arrives , thus sustaining the phase post ovulation.

    Are you charting? Can you pin point your ovulation day?

    Hugs,

    Mich

    Hi Mich,

    Well i did have good news, but now it is sad news. I did get a BFP from this cycle on Vitex, but then i miscarried. Doc says from hcg levels i was 5.5 weeks. So... sad news, but we're not giving up! Have been charting temps for 9 months and will go back to this again. Doc has referred us to fertility specialist, but we just want to try a few months on our own one last time. I am going to go back on the vitex as soon as i am back to normal (i have chosen to let things resolve naturally as opposed to a d & c which i had to have for amiscarriage a few years back). Hubby is going to try zinc supplements now too, as this is meant to be good for creating healthy sperm. Please keep fingers crossed for us!

    Good luck to everyone else TTC as well.
