Started taking vitex agnus-castus today (Chaste Tree). Gonna see if it lives up to its reputation for bringing sanity to my cycle.
An excerpt from Wikipedia:
"Vitex agnus-castus is used to alleviate symptoms of various gynecological problems. All evidence is limited to standardised controlled extracts such as used in Germany, different extracts or herbal mixes may have significantly different properties and safety issues. Some of the modern uses include premenstrual syndrome, abnormal uterine bleeding disorders and mastodynia.
Good evidence and safety exists for these uses:
No specific clinical studies but use partially supported by clinical evidence on symptoms and mechanism of action:
I always find I love characters in TVs/movies/books *far* more when they’ve got flaws.
Time to apply that shit and like myself because of my flaws, not in spite of them.

And if you do follow me, don’t particularly like me/are jealous of me. Do us all a favour and click unfollow.
Apologies to you guys who need inspo - keep reading my most recent posts and I hope they can help.
