B6 and longer periods?


Hi,

I've been taking vitamin B6 complex for over a month and i got my periods 7 days ago! Normally i would be lucky if my periods lasted 3 days. I have had mild cramps this cycle and just wondered if anyone else has had the same problems and is there a direct link? Also will it sort itself out?

Thanks xx

This is only my second month on B100 complex, but I read through that entire humongous thread about B vitamins. My understand is that it is supposed to help lengthen the LP and help with spotting.

I don't recall anyone saying anything about longer periods because of it. Though some people didn't like the B vitamins because it made their cycle a bit unpredictable (ie, starting earlier or way later). So far I'm liking it, but we'll see how it goes in a week!

B6 shortened my luteal phase from an ok 10 days to a dismal 3 days! I also got eczema for the first time in my life and developed a constant eye and hand twitch. All these stopped when I stopped taking the horrible stuff. Wasted 2 cycles messing with my body.

I think its showing that its working well for you, the B6 works by strengthening your uterine lining and in turn lengthens your luteal phase. More lining equals more menses.

Ah, yes! My favorite side effect was losing all that excess water weight. Makes sense why a lot of weight loss pills are filled with b vitamins! Worth it's weight in gold right there!

It just seems like B vitamins work well for some people, and cause horrible side effects for others.
