    Since this is pretty much a "girls only" site, I figured I could let the ladies in on a little secret. It's called Vitex! It is an herbal supplement for women that balances hormones. It treats PMS symptoms, regulates periods and ovulation, enhances chance of conception, helps new mothers produce plenty of milk, is great for women with PCOS, it benefits menopausal women by easing symptoms, and it helps a woman's body go back to normal when coming off birth control. You can get it at GNC for $7.99 for 100 capsules. It works slowly so take 2 per day for around 6-8 weeks and then continue taking 1 a day. Do not take when pregnant.
