Has anyone tried Vitex for irregular periods? I don't know what to do at this point. I think I'm in early menopause and I'm only 39. I've been getting heavier periods lately and way too close together. I just can't take it anymore. I need herbal suggestions for lightening it up or stopping it altogether. I never tried Vitex, but I keep hearing mixed things about it. Does anyone know of anything else I could try? I barely got my period for six months, and I was so happy about it. But then I was under massive stress and I got it back with a vengeance. Then I thought it stopped for a few days, and now, bang. I am so sick of this. I don't want to go back on birth control pills. I got too sick on those after time. So I'm looking for alternatives.
