Luteal Phase Defect and Vitamin B6


Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum but have come looking for advice on luteal phase defects and how/if taking Vitamin B6 can help.

Some background information:

Before I had my baby girl last April (2010) my luteal phase was around 10 or 11 days. I never had anything shorter than 10...

I weaned DD at 8 months in hope of getting my period back so that we could start trying again. It took 6 weeks before I got my first period but since then my luteal phase has only been 8 days - way too short.

I have just started taking 100mg of vitamin b6 in hope of lengthening my luteal phase.

Has anybody had any experience with this? Does it work? Does it work quickly?

Should I be going to the doctors to see them about this?

We want to fall pregnant again as soon as possible and I don't really want to be wasting my time if the B6 isn't even going to work...

Any advice?

I just started taking a B50 complex (it has 50mg of B6 along with other B vitamins) this cycle. Haven't O'd yet so I'm not sure how it will affect me. Hopefully it does well since my last LP was only 5 days! One other lady on here (sorry her screenname escapes me at the moment) said she went from a 7 day to LP to 12 days after starting a B100 complex. If my doesn't go up enough this cycle I will up my dosage to the B100 complex as well.

I also started agnus castus (vitex) this cycle for my LP, but again I haven't O'd yet so don't know if it will help any!

Hey ladies, I had a short luteal phase of 7-8 days about 5 cycles ago. I started taking 25mg of VitB6 along with my multivitamin which contained 12mg and from the next cycle until now my luteal phase is never shorter than 10 days. This cycle I have started Vitex so will see if it increases it anymore. Vitamin B6 worked for me. but still no BFP yet though. The past few cycles i've just been happy to have longer luteal phases .... hope now the little sticky bean has enough time to implant. Good luck ladies

babyjo - It is a relief to hear from someone that taking the B6 really does work - and quickly too. I want to be pregnant again so badly...

fingers crossed that we will all get a BFP soon!

Hi 2011hopes, I am on day 6 now. So we are about the same time in our cycle.

*hugs* it must have been hard seeing a +hpt the day you got your period... having a short lp really does suck, doesn't it!
