I tried vitex (800mg) for about 41/2 months and took it without any problem - the only trouble was my libido COMPLETELY disappeared and i know it's supposed to have the opposite effect on women but i couln't get rid of the persistent niggle that perhaps this was causing it. The Acne certainly wasn't being helped by taking it so I thought I would ditch it in favour of oil of evening primrose for a while. I also take licorice in a tea blend and via dGL tablets to chew but I favour these to keep the tummy lining healthy. haven't tried any 'well woman' type supplements although I've been eyeing them up in the pharmacy for a while - I still get quite PMSY around ovulation and prior to and during my period and wondered if they will do the trick (I do believe the oil of primrose has diminished the 'rage' somewhat!)
the mirena seemed to leave me with a lot of deficiencies so I take a good multi vit with probiotic,milk thistle, kelp (iodine) magnesium and have just introduced Zinc into the mix. PHew! It's a nuisance but if it helps, I'll do it!
