I am considering taking Vitex, Red Raspberry Leaf, and False Unicorn?

Basically I am TTC but also breastfeeding my almost 1 yr old daughter. I am not ovulating yet and would like to jump start the process without risking my milk with drugs. So I need a combination safe to take together but to also take while BF?

I found this on Amazon...but I also need to know dosages...and how much to take??

I am not sure. You can read This. It tells of how diet can help infertility.

Red Raspberry is diffenitely safe it will help stregthen the uterus. The vitex does have an effect on prolactin, by normalizing the amount, thus affecting the amount of breastmilk. I would use caution here if you are worried about decreasing your milk. I am not completely sure on the False Unicorn because I haven't used it. From what I have read it sounds fine. Have you thought about acupunture, the latest studies show it is extremely effective in increasing fertility. I hope this helps.

I've had a quite a few miscarriages in my life, and for this baby I made and drank red rasberry leaf tea for the first couple weeks with this pregnancy. I'm now 20wks!!!

I can't say as to the effects on a breastfeeding mother but I take Vitex to regulate my cycles in hope of conceiving. I actually use that exact product in the picture. The back of the bottle will tell you how to take it. I would consult a OB or midwife with the question about how it effects your milk. Vitex is a slow working herb so it may take at least three cycles to help regulate. Also as soon as you find out you're pregnant stop taking Vitex. It should not be used in pregnancy.
