Must report that this stuff worked for me. LP went from 11/12 days with spotting to 15 days with no spotting.

Congrats Vestirse! Thanks for sharing; it gives me hope! I'm on day 16 of my cycle so I'm still waiting to see what happens (fingers crossed).

vitamin B6


Hi there

I am new to this site and wanted to feedback my experience of short luteal phase. I had a luteal phase of between 9 and 11 days max. I read on sites like these so much about B6 and began taking 100mg a day mid cycle. I then read 'Nutrition and fertility cycles' where she suggests taking 200mg / day and says this is completely safe. Its a great book. I upped the B6 to 200mg and that cycle got pregnant. Sadly I miscarried, but the next time I got my period my luteal phase had been 14 DAYS!!!! VIT B6 WORKS!!!
The following cycle I am now pregnant again.
I really believe in the B6 - give it a go / read the book (I must check the author, but google / amazon it and you'll find it anyway!)
Wish me luck, this is my 3rd pregnancy now... (after 2 MC)

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you L32. Unfortunately I'm not so lucky. I started taking 100 mg of B complex and went from a 7 day to a 13 day period. Plus I somehow managed to ovulate during my period! I've cut down for this month to 50 mg. We'll see. I'm still experimenting with the dosage.

Hi girls. Been reading your experiences on trying to deal with a short lp as I'm pretty sure I have one of those. Since I've been off the pill it has been getting shorter each month, culminating in a 9 day lp this cycle. I remember reading somewhere about Vit B helping some and it appears to be true. This is my first cycle ttc and I was disappointed that my af came so early.

My question is should you take a Vit B complex rather than just Vit B6, any recommendations?

Thanks in advance

Vit B complex definitely. Taking one b vitamin (like Vit B6) alone can cause a deficiency in the others and a deficiency in Vit B12 has been linked with miscarriage. Also taking all the B vitamins can help absorption. You actually waste a lot of vitamin B6 when you take it alone.

Thanks for your response. Sorry, for more questions:

Do you think a 100mg dose to start or less? How long had you been taking it to notice a difference? Do you take it throughout your whole cycle?

1. I am taking 50mg, but only because I didn't want to lengthen it too much - I already had an 11/12 day LP. You'll want to take more if you want to lengthen it more.

2. It took only one cycle.

3. Yes, I take it for the entire cycle. You can stop at O if you are so inclined I think because the work should be done (it does the most in the follicular phase), but it doesn't harm anything if you keep taking it.

I started taking 100mg of B6 and my LP went from 9 days to 12 days in just 2 cycles. I am currently taking a BComplex as well - it only has an additional 5mg of B6 - but I feel that it is important as started above to balance your B's out. I was really worried about my short LP and now - not so much. Now its just up to me to do the rest of the work. Hoping to increase my LP again this cycle - will let you know for sure.
