For those of you who used Vitex to encourage your body to start menstruating again while breastfeeding your baby - did it work?  How long after you started taking it did you wait for your period?  Thanks!

It didn't work for me... it did bring on ovulation at CD41 when I was TTC my daughter. It is known to increase milk supply :o)

I took Vitex while TTC but not breastfeeding. It helped get my cycle back and ovulating for sure cause I'm now 20 wks 2 days pregnant! I plan to use Vitex after pregnancy too, to help get my cycle back. So I'm not much help at this time. Sorry. I figure if Vitex worked to help me, that it will help again afterwards.

Bummer, I was hoping for better reviews.  I guess I'll just stick with good old fashioned patience :/
