clairbear0,

That gives me hope. I am really hopeful that the b vitamins help me. I am now on cycle day 15 with taking b complex daily since day 1. So far it seems to be doing wonders for me. I feel like I have already O'd which would mean that my ovulation date moved forward by a week almost. The only reason I am weary to say i ovulated for certain is because I typically rely on cp and ovulation pains seeing as my temps are unreliable. I don't know if its the b6 but I am not having cramps worthy of noting this month. I noticed a huge amount of ewcm last Wednsday when the opk was its darkest and we bd that night. Now at cycle day 15 the only thing i am noticing is milky white discharge so I am in limbo lol

Hey Sarah, I have a 10-11 day LP but I probably always have as I’ve had short cycles since I started getting periods. While TTC my first babe, I tried B6 without much luck. It turns out that an underactive thyroid is the culprit for me. My CD3 bloodwork showed TSH over 2.5 and high Prolactin. I guess these both can cause all sorts of ovulation disorders. For me, I O regularly, but my corpus luteum fails early which is why my LP is short. I needed to go on levo and use P and E2 hormone support to get and stay pregnant. I guess my problem is rare, but would really encourage further testing to help you figure out what’s going on. If you do end up down that path, it is bittersweet but it’s definitely worth it. We conceived our Rainbow on our first cycle of treatment

lesondemavie,

I have always had normalish cycles. typically 28-32 days with an 11 day LP. I do have two children already ages 9 and 11. They were both huge surprises, so safe to say i did not have any issues conceiving the first two times. I have had the mirena in and taken out due to complications. I am thinking that the two previous pregnancies combined with complicated mirena may have thrown my hormones way off balance. I thought i was going to O last week as the dollar tree test showed a very visable test line and the next days opk was lighter, but now I am pretty positive i am in fact getting ready to ovulate now, as i have been having o pains and some more ewcm this morning. ran out to dollar tree for opk and sure enough this one is a blazing positive. Guess I will keep for the next few days to ensure we have a good chance. We have been bd since last weekend at least every other day.

Hi i have a short lp been trying for 3 yrs. When ttc wih my son it was a normal 11 day lp. We stared ttc no 2 and conceived pretty quik but was a loss. Ever since then its been out of whack. Think i have had maybe 2 11 days but its mostly between 8 and 10. I have tried maca which seemed to.get rid of my estrogen dominence signs. A few cycles ago i tried vitwx which seemed great had a 14 day lp the next cycle it there was even more spotting and it just gradually got worse. Just started af today so makes it an 8 day cycle. Last cycle i tried 50mg of b6 this cycle was 100mg. Im doing a bit of research and selenium helps the corpus l which produced progesterone and it needs selenium. So i might try that and maybe up my b6 think max u can go is 200mg but might try 150mg. I also have some natural progesterone cream so i might give that a go too. Sadly seems vitex doesnt work for me and im hoping its not messed me up too much.

My luteal phase seems to be getting shorter,the last two months have been 8 days so this month I've started taking vitamin B complex in the hope that b6 in it might help.

Hi ladies

Hope all is going well in your ttc journey!! I am glad to see that my post is encouraging everyone to speak up and discuss supplements when ttc. I figured I would give a quick update as this is my first cycle using the B Complex vitamins. I started taking them in hopes of regulating my cycle and raising progesterone. My typical cycles range anywhere from 28-32 days with spotting for up to a week after bleeding ends. I dont usually ovulate until after cycle day 20, and I have an 11 day luteal phase, which isn't terrible, but its not great either. As I stated, I started the b vitamins this cycle with hopes for longer luteal phase and a BFP. I am currently at cycle day 18 and I am now officially in the TWW as of yesterday. I had positive opks on both cycle day 15 and 16, with ovulation pain on cycle day 16. Pretty sure that I ovulated on the 16th day bringing my ovulation forward by 5 or 6 days YAY!! My temp went from a palteau of 97.7 for three days to 98F yesterday and 98.3F this morning at 2dpo. I am praying hard that I have a beautiful BFP at the end of this tww.

Hey ladies just wanted to post a quick update from my update earlier this morning....

As I stated earlier I am almost positive that I ovulated on cycle day 16 July 3rd. I just took one more OPK to check and sure enough its most def negative now just 2 days later. Looks like I am most certainly 2dpo after all. I hope this BComplex helps with the luteal phase as it def seemed to work at bringing my ovulation forward.

pamg,

I started taking the B complex on the first day of my cycle this month. I take it every morning before work. I am now at 7 dpo and I am feeling optimistic. I ovulated on cycle day 16 instead of 21, and I typically have low body temps as Its hard for me to get a reading above 97.4 even when ill. This cycle however, I have had elevated temps since O From O until now these are the changes that I have noticed. Hopefully it can help someone else.

Oday-Now: excess amount of white milky/creamy cm.

Oday-Now: elevated bbt started at 97.7 on O day and since then its gone up highest peak was yesterday at 99F. It's dipped this am to 98.6F but still well above coverline and higher than I am used to.

5DPO-Now: backache, and when i say backache i mean my lower back feels like i pulled a muscle although i have done nothing strenuous and sleep in the same position every night. I can only explain it as a really sore lower back localized more so on my left side where I ovulated from.

I have also noticed some pinches/pulls in lower abdomen and my boobs are a tad sensitive but nothing crazy. I have also been extremely gassy since O. Also noted on FF that I am in much higher spirits this month. Usually by this time in my cycle I am irritable and everything bothers me.

pamg,

Fingers crossed that the b 6 helps you doll. It def has helped me. I ovulated 5 days earlier than usual while taking it. I am hopeful that this is my month seeing as my temps have remained elevated. The backache is my biggest issue right now especially since back pain is not a pre af symptom for me. If i end up pg this cycle it will have been 10 years since the birth of dd!
