vitex agnus

hi ya'll. i read in the textbooks that vitex/chasteberry can be used to treat low progesterone levels. it says caution in pregnancy. what are appropriate situations and doses for one who has low progesterone levels and trying to sustain pregnancy? if anybody has any thoughts on the matter i'd love to hear it. thanks.

Re: vitex agnus

Hi Bonnie,
My expierence with this herb was in a woman with menopausal symptoms. Heed the warning from '300 Herbs' "Discontinue or lower dosage...occur". After this encounter I started muscle-testing for the correct dosage. You may find this site helpful:
