According to my research this herb will reduce my male urges to mate. I've decided to try it for awhile and report back here on its effects. I've ordered it online and should be recieving it soon! Although it's used for women there is evidence to suggest it will reduce the male sex drive. I intend to put it to the test... prepare... "Vitex is one of the best herbs for balancing hormones, regulating menstrual cycles and relieving symptoms of PMS. Vitex works on the pituitary gland, which is responsible for signaling the body to make the appropriate amounts of each hormone, therefore, it helps to bring balance at the core of the issue. It may take several weeks of use (6-12) to start to see its results. Vitex Agnus-Castus, also commonly called Monks Pepper, acts as a stimulate for the pituitary gland to produce more progesterone and less prolactin. It does not contain hormones, but only stimulates the pituitary gland. Many women with menstrual cycle irregularities do not produce enough progesterone during the second phase of their menstrual cycle (luteal phase). This means that estrogen, the dominant female hormone in the first phase, continues to dominate in the second phase leading to a number of menstrual cycle abnormalities. It is also frequently found that in women with these problems they have a high concentration of prolactin. High levels of prolactin in latter phases of the menstrual cycle lead to breast tenderness, and is associated with infertility. Vitex useful in treating peri menopausal and menopausal symptoms, in particular hot flushes, and menstrual irregularities such as flooding, clotting and irregular cycle. Post menopausal women who still feel cyclic mood swings can also benefit. It is also hugely helpful in relieving PMS symptoms, especially headaches and mood swings." Also: "Its historical use as an herb to decrease libido and “keep one chaste” suggest it also has a moderating affect on testosterone function. Though long considered valuable for enhancing progesterone, the potential affect of Vitex on testosterone and estrogen levels must be kept in mind when using of this herb." + "Research has shown that vitex may indeed be helpful for treating premenstrual syndrome (PMS), erratic menstrual cycles, and insufficient milk supply in women, and may even help reduce sex drive in men. Vitex causes the pituitary gland to decrease production of follicle stimulating horomone (FSH) and to increase production of luteinizing hormone (LH), a hormonal shift that indirectly leads to higher progesterone levels and a decrease of male hormones, or androgens, in the body."
