Thanks! It wasn't prescribed, I just bought it from Morrisons, but I've seen it in Asda also. Or they do slightly stronger stuff in Holland and Barrett. I was only taking 10mg a day for the first month, which gave me an extra 4 days on my LP, then the second month I went up to 40mg, which got me my BFP. I read that you can safely take up to 200mg a day short term, but that seems like a lot to me!

Also, you're supposed to take it alongside vitamin b12 so that it can be absorbed by the body, but I wasn't taking any extra b12 (only the small amount that was part of my conception support vitamins). Hope that helps, good luck! x
Just ordered some from Holland and Barrat 100mg so I'll give it a go. They seem pretty good anyway, for energy, wellbeing etc I'll keep you posted in the coming months!

I'm tempted to try that as well... I'm assuming it's okay when still breastfeeding?

Yes, it's perfectly safe to take while breastfeeding

Hi Ladies,
Can I join you! We're TTC baby #3, and breastfeeding #2 (5 months)
I got my first postpartum +ve ovulation test then AF (or what I assume was AF) 5 days later, it was really light and no cramps though. Anyway, assuming that was AF, I'm CD 9 today and waiting to ovulate and get back in the 2ww. I think I might give b6 a go as well, sounds like it can't hurt!
Congratulations to the BFPs and good luck to all of you!
xxx

Just out of interest have any of you had to wait a bit longer for your BFP? I know HCG is in your breastmilk, so wondered if that affected the urine concentration of hcg as well?
(I'm not completely convinced about the bleeding being AF and wanted to test as I'm feeling a bit off, don't want to waste tests though by testing too early)

As far as the light bleeding, sounds like your system is trying to get back into the swing of things. My first bleed was at 5 1/2 months, and it was nothing more than light spotting for about 8 days and no cramping whatsoever. Enough that it was always there and red when I wiped, but not enough to really make it to a panty liner.
The second time it showed up was about 19 days later, and it was the same thing except this time it's only lasted about 3 or 4 days but I got cramping with it this time around. Nothing major but enough that I noticed the cramping and figured AF was coming. But it came at the same time I was getting my first positive opk's. So I'm not sure if I was actually ovulating, or if it was just a mini surge due to AF.

I picked up some B6 and B12 last night, will give it a go!

I've done a bit of reading about B6 and its fine to take during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
I'm getting my usual twinges so AF is on the way should be due around Monday.
Positive about my B6 cycle next month though!!
Welcome low bird!! I hope #3 comes quickly for you! My cycles took a good few months I regulate themselves at first x

This is probably a silly question, but do we take the B6 only for a certain time period, or just every day until our cycles regulate?

I was wondering the same thing Kalyrra!!
I've decided to write this month off with regards to TTC, I've run out of ov tests until my new order arrives in the post, so we're just going to dtd when we feel like it and I'll start keeping an eye on ovulation etc after next af. Kinda hoping we catch the eggy this month but no big deal if we don't as I'm not really expecting too.
Have any of you newly pregnant ladies noticed any effect on your supply? My 5month old is still ebf and I worry a little that it will upset my supply, I fed my DD until I was 7 month preggy with Noah, but she was a lot older than he is. Hoping starting solids in a few weeks will help my cycle settle down.

I was taking the b6 every day throughout my cycle

I haven't noticed any effect on my supply yet, but my 10 month old is only BF'ing twice a day, first thing in the morning and last thing at night.
