Using Vitex for Fertility Issues

Vitex Chasteberry Tree is a plant that grows in the Mediterranean region. Vitex Chasteberry is often eaten by women to help with their fertility, ovulation and pregnancy. Vitex for fertility can be extremely effective because Vitex Agnus Castus can be very good at helping women to overcome the unpleasant signs and symptoms of hormonal imbalance.

Vitex Agnus Castus contains compounds that have been scientifically proven to help people with their hormonal imbalance issues. For example Chasteberry is particularly effective at helping women with the adverse side effects of PMS.

Agnus Castus can be eaten as a garnish on food, drank as a tincture, or taken in a natural supplement tablet form.

Vitex and Fertility

vitex-pituitaryVitex for fertility works because it indirectly increases the production of progesterone hormones in the body, which is a vital hormone for fertility. There are compounds in Vitex Agnus Castus that have an influence on the pituitary glands. These compounds reduce the number of FS (follicle stimulating) hormones being produced and increase the number of L (luteinizing) hormones being produced. This then causes the body to increase its production of progesterone hormones.

This is important because progesterone hormones play a large role in fertility. For example progesterone hormones:

. Increase libido levels, making women want more sexual intercourse,
. Progesterone produces a vaginal mucus that helps to fight infections and make sex more comfortable,
. Progesterone controls the levels of estrogen in the body, an even balance of the two being vital for fertility.

Thus Vitex for fertility is vital. Women can take Vitex for fertility in different ways, including as a garnish on food, as a tincture, or as a juice drink. Nevertheless whichever way Vitex Agnus Castus is consumed it is equally effective.

Vitex and Ovulation

Vitex and ovulation, like vitex and fertility, are also linked. During ovulation women also have high levels of progesterone hormones. Consequently because Vitex Agnus Castus can help a woman when they ovulate it is also helpful to take Vitex Agnus Castus during these periods. Progesterone hormones have many roles during ovulation, such as:

. Progesterone hormones inform the uterus to prepare for an egg,
. If no egg is received by the uterus, progesterone hormones drop and a period begins,
. Low levels of progesterone hormones actually leave women unable to ovulate.

Consequently women who take Vitex Chasteberry for their ovulation may find that it helps their periods to become more regular. Thus when drank as a juice or a tincture, or eaten as a garnish, Vitex Agnus Castus can be extremely good at helping women to get pregnant.

Vitex and Pregnancy

During pregnancy women are not advised to take Vitex Agnus castus. This is because the body is in a very delicate hormonal balance and it can be dangerous to upset the system. Nevertheless although Vitex whilst pregnant can be dangerous, Vitex for getting pregnant can be very effective. This is because Vitex Agnus Castus plays a large role in ovulation and fertility, as was written about above.

Getting pregnant with Vitex Agnus Castus is not uncommon, and many women are willing to testify to its strengths.

Which herb should women try? Today women are looking for relief from their menopause symptoms with herbs. Phytoestrogenic herbs and non-estrogenic herbs are good in relieving menopause symptoms, but recent studies show that non-estrogenic herbs have no side effects because they help the body to produce its own hormones instead of introducing hormones like the phytoestrogenic ones.
