    Hi. I am currently taking vitex n royal jelly. I am hoping the vitex will regulate hormones. The royal jelly is to increase egg quality

    Hi lilyz,

    Thanks for you repsonse...

    How do you take the royal jelly and vitex and how many mg a day do you take?

    Out of interest did your doctor advise you to take these and have you had tests to see what issues are with your hormones before you started these or have you just decided to try them?

    Im just wondering as i have been diagnosed with PCOS but i dont know directly what the issues are hormones wize.

    I am taking 3 royal jelly. I am taking 4 (400mg) of vitex daily. Total of 1600mg daily of vitex. I go my reccomended dose on both bottles. My doc didnt tell me to use any natural medicine. I was dx n did testing n clomid with doc. I asked for a break due to money. Dh n I do not want to go in debt getting pg. I no my hormones r messed up. I am clomid resistant. I do not ovulate at all. I just heard good things about vitex and decided to give it a shot. So far I love it. I feel good almost every day which is accomplishment. Royal jelly I think gives me more energy. I on cd33. I think I might have ovulated on cd 29. I am hoping for a BFP but will be happy to get af on my own.

    Also, check out this forum: http://www.soulcysters.net/forumdisp...rticles-4-PCOS

    ...and scroll down past the 'quick links' (because I need to fix those), to the 'normal' threads...

    About a quarter of the way down the page there are several studies on PCOS, TCM, and acupuncture. Including a free PDF.

    I started acupuncture last week. My last period was early February, so I am probably around day 50 of my cycle. Started spotting two days after my treatment. Went in for another treatment today, and started my period three hours later. Incredible. i"m also on metformin and the PCOS Insulite program.
    I've had two iuis, clomid, menopur...but am deciding to go with acupuncture for now.

    After ovulating on all 4 rounds of clomid with perfect cycles and not getting that BFP, i added acupuncture on my 5th and got pregnant. I did 2 treatments that month, one during my period and the other on the day of ovulation. I think it did the trick for me, i personally think its worth a try.

    Cycle 5 - Clomid 25mg Day 5-9 / Evening Primrose Oil / Elevit with Iodine / Vitamin D3 1000iu / 500mg Met / Acupuncture = BFP!

    Its a BOY!

    definately look into licorice and peony root. both herbs are known to lower testosterone levels and have shown great results in women who have elevated testosterone levels.

    Acupuncture + Chinese herbal medicine is one of the best treatment of infertility. There are countless successful cases in Hong Kong and China. But you have to find out whether it is the problem of the hundred or the wife first.
