Short Luteal Phase Vitamin B6?


Hey ladies, I am new here. I am the proud mamma of two babes ages 11 and 9, but I am having trouble this time around. I never had any issues getting pregnant with my first two, so this go around has really got me feeling hopeless. I have been doing a lot of research and it appears as though i have a luteal phase of about 11 days. I know drs say a lp of 10 days is good but many fertility specialist say that a lp of 12-14 is ideal. I am currently on cycle day 9 and I started taking a 100mg of vitamin B6 on cycle day one of this cycle. I have heard many great things of b complex vitamins helping women to get the bfp they dream of. My question is do any ladies out there have the same issue or has anyone had bfp success after starting B vitamins for luteal phase defect. any advice or even support from other ttc'rs would be wonderful. Seeing all of my friends and family members getting pregnant really makes me feel down.

Hello!
I have a 10 day LP and also have two children. Iíve been wondering about whether it would be causing any issues but figured I managed two other pregnancies so have tried not to worry.
Will be interested to see what others say though!

Jellybeanxx Hello!
Sorry for the long paragraph lol. I had both of my babes easily. I was not preventing , but we also weren't ttc. I was also only 20 years old at the time of my dd birth 9 years ago. since her birth, I went on the Mirena IUD. Worst decision of my life!!! After 6 mos they had to remove it because it was causing me daily pain, and go figure they couldn't locate it so it took ultrasound and extra time to remove it. In the next 6 mos after its removal, I went on the pill and I left my children's father due to some abuse issues. Here I am 9 years later getting ready to marry the man of my dreams, but it kills me to think that I may not be able to give him a child of his own. We have been together for 6.5 years now, and in this time we have not used protection. We were not ttc but we also weren't taking any measures to prevent it. So in 6.5 years of no BC I still haven't managed to get pregnant, which I just dont understand. My children have been asking about a brother or sister the past year or so and i want for that more than anything. I have recently (since NOV 17) put on 30 lbs which is good seeing as i was underweight. In the first half of this year I am noticing that my periods seem to be weird. I will get all pg symptoms and then have late periods but the late ones seem to either be really heavy for 1-2 days max or I will bleed a small amt and spot for days. I feel like I have had some chemical pregnancies and that when it is time to implant my body is gearing up for AF. I am hoping the B6 and B12 will regulate my cycle and allow me the oppertunity to become a momma for the 3rd time. I hear so many wonderful things about b vitamins and fertility so i was hoping we can create this thread for positive and encouragement along the way.

Sounds like the vitamins are definitely worth a go!
Are you going to have any testing done? Might be worth speaking to your doctor as well especially if your cycles have been a bit wonky.

Jellybeanxx! I haven't been to a specialist yet, but more so due to insurance issues, than not wanting to go. I now have insurance that does cover fertility treatment. I would like to try on my own first before having medical intervention. I am leaning towards a hormone imbalance and low weight (5'8 at 115)for the past 6 years. I am hoping that now that i weigh a healthy 145 and am taking the vitamins that it will give my body the push it needs. I know 11 day leuteal phase isn't terrible, but along with that I have irregular cycles some being 28 days to as long as 35, I notice brown spotting after my AF stops. I also noticed that my tempature always seems to be on the low side even after ovulation. my body temp tends to avg around 97.3F after ovulation it may go up to 98F. Like i stated earlier, I have started taking the bvitamins this cycle on day one of my AF. I have already noticed in the past 10 days that my AF cleared up alot faster than previous cycles. I have had NO spotting since cycle day 6 and now at cycle day 10 my cervix is high, almost unreachable and its soft, wet, and i am noticing more discharge. Normally I O late in the cycle around cycle day 20. Could the b vitamin be regulating my cycle already, bringing Ovulation forward?

Sounds like good progress towards improving your cycle. Maybe itís the combination of a healthier weight and starting the vitamins?

jellybeanxx I am praying so!! I have heard that b vitamins are great for correcting cycles and producing progesterone naturally. Here is to hoping that I see improvements this cycle. How is your TTC journey going thus far?

Weíre only on our second cycle of properly trying. My first two both took nearly 18 months of TTC each so Iím expecting to be in it for a while this time too. Iím mostly okay with that I think! Iím trying to get my body as healthy as I can for pregnancy. Not always easy with two small children to look after though.

With my first I had a really short one I remember. I started having sex every other day the first day after my period. I was successful within 4 months.
