Chaste berry or vitex agnus-castus was recognized to help women get pregnant centuries of years ago. It works to balance the hormones in the body thereby aiding pregnancy. This herb is extremely popular even today and is considered among the oldest of phyto medicines. Physicians from ancient Greece said that it could be used to suppress libido. Also, they said that this herb could be used for numerous other purposes such as wound healing, solving problems related to spleen, and aiding pregnancy. Even the English started using this herb in order to suppress libido and the Catholic Church followed suit. However, there is no actual proof that it suppresses libido. Many studies have however shown that it aids childbirth. Physicians in Early America also used it because it enhanced lactation.
If you want to get pregnant, you have to be healthy not just physically but also on the mental level. You should follow a healthy lifestyle and you should keep stress as far away from you as possible. Your menstruation cycles should be regular and so should your ovulation. Many women face a condition known as Premenstrual Syndrome, which is caused due to the imbalance of hormones in the body. Chaste berry or vitex works to relieve the problems caused due to such imbalance. A few have also claimed that it helps alleviate polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOS due to which, menstrual cycles are not normal or regular at all. In other words, ovulation does not occur in these women. They don’t even menstruate and thus, they can’t get pregnant. Amenorrhea is the condition in which menstruation does not occur at all.
Most menstrual problems are because of lack of progesterone during the time between the first day of menstruation to the ovulation time, which is also known as the luteal phase. This condition or syndrome is called corpus luteum insufficiency or luteal phase defect. In this condition, the levels of progesterone are abnormally low after the start of the menstrual cycle. The lack of this hormone may lead to cyst formation and this causes PCOS. Additionally women suffering with PCOS also have excessive prolactin. This is dangerous because the more amount of prolactin in the body can also cause infertility. Vitex has been known to cure all these problems.
A few women continue to take vitex capsules even after they are pregnant, throughout the first trimester to avoid the risk of miscarriages because most miscarriages occur in the first trimester itself. Balanced levels of progesterone in the body can avoid this.
