I started at 100 mgs of B complex and it completely messed up my cycle. However, when I went down to 50 mgs this month my lp went from 3 days to 5 (and counting). I strongly recommend testing different dosages if one isn't working for you. Larger dosages aren't necessarily better or more productive.
I've been taking B-Complex this cycle (complete with neon wee - I almost had a heart attack when I first noticed it!). I took it until about CD19. I don't know whether it's made any difference yet as I can't pinpoint when I ovulated so I don't know what my lutel phase will have been this cycle.
It was 9 days last time which is why I'm trying the B-Complex, BUT the cycle was only 23 days last time and I'm on CD25 today so it might be helping! I will certainly be using it next time as well.
Mrs G, I'm taking Jamison 100 B complex, but only half a pill (50mgs) at a time. Any brand is fine as long as the dosage is more significant than in your prenatal pills (50mg +). My cousin found that taking 200mgs per day works for her, but experiment with dosage to determine the right one for you.
My lp lengthened after ov, but my cousin's lengthened before ov AND after. Hope that helps.
Just thought I'd drop by to update. I posted in here a few weeks back about vit b. I started taking the complex on CD1 last cycle and my cycle length this time increased by 2 days (lp) from 9 to 11. So that's a good start
This is an excellent thread. I'm also trying B vits - I temped last cycle (for the 1st time) and discovered my luteal phase was only 11 days. Taking B complex this cycle, admittedly not from the beginning of my cycle but hey..... OVed one day earlier which is a good start. Also taking agnus castus. Will report back any further news.
