I've managed to oncrease my cycle length from around 23 days to 27/28 and rather than ovulating on CD16 I am now fairly consistently ovulating around the 13th. Not sure if it's the Agnus Castus but I have been taking 3 400mg capsuls a day up to ovulation.

I finally have an appointment with the fertility clinic in Jan so don't know if I should stop taking it before then and see if my cycle goes back to 23 days.

This is my third month taking it and I think my cycle is finally sorting itself out. It wasn't a complete cure-all for me, but something seems to be working now. I take 1200mg/day all cycle long too.

I have a success story - I LOVE AC!(mine were 1000mg capsules)

We ttc for 4 months, nothing - short LP.
First month on the AC - BFP! Lots more CM so really easy to pinpoint ov.

Sadly that ended in mc, so ttc again and went back on the AC - BFP first month again!

I'm now nearly 4 months pg!

Good Luck ladies xxx

Hello guys!

I've been ttc for 2.5 years - 1 mc 2 years ago. We have unexplained infertility. Although went on clomid to increase LP and didn't change from 10 days.

Took Agnus Castus last month for the first time (2x500mg) and ovulated on day 15 and had 28 day cycle!!!! AF arrived but I was still really excited as haven't ovulated that early since ttc.

Does anyone know how much I should be taking??

We are considering fertility treatment in January so really hope we can do it on our own before then as I'm under 36 and don't qualify for any funding in my PCT so it will be quite expensive!!! smile

i'v been reading up on AC...seems to be a tenuous like to m/c?? lots of places say you should only take it up until O.

I am currently on the pill to dampen down suspected endo. This will be my third month and hoping to stop taking it after AF after this pack. Can I start taking agnus castus now to let it build up in my system in preparation for stopping pill? or will the pill+AC=bad things happening to my lady bits?

I have started using the tincture as having heavy periods, cramping and PMT.
But i hate the taste of it in water, are the tablets supposed to be as effetcive? That might make it easier to take.

i've been taking it for a few months and definitely noticed the difference. Cycle was quite short - only 24-26 days and now I've just had a 28 day-er for the first time in ages.
