I haven’t started my period and I am 16. Will vitex help?
Lack of menstruation before the age of 17 does not need to be treated unless your doctor has identified a hormone imbalance. If this is the case, then please go to our website at http://www.richters.com, choose "Q&A" from the main menu, then choose "Medicinal Herbs and Their Uses" and search for the items "Menstrual Regulation to Promote Pregnancy" and "Amenorrhea: Lack of Menstrual Cycles", which suggest tonic herbs to balance the reproductive system.
