Hi all! I'm joining you here now that AF has shown up. Not sure when I'll be testing since my cycles are slightly irregular, but sometime in mid-Sept. And yay, fellow Canadians!

Tove, I'm taking prenatals + Omega 3 (for brain development, not conception) + calcium and magnesium (partly to sway girl, but they seem to be good for TTC in general). I hadn't heard about B6--will look into that.

Tove - I'm talking a few supplements/vitamins/superfoods. I don't know if they help specifically with fertility but I know they're good for overall health which does contribute to fertility health, it's all related. I'm taking Maca, Fish Oil, Goji Berry, Magnesium, Iron & Royal Jelly. In addition to my prenatal multivitamin.

Sorsha - Welcome, I'll put you with the undecided crew until you get a better idea.

Thanks Dream and Sorsha! I think I might need some more superfoods too, at least it can't hurt. Will look into that now!

Ive been on b6 for about 6wks now(50mg daily). Last cycle it lengthened my follicular phase by 2 days and my luteal phase by 1,5 days (this took me from 24 day cycle to 28 days and put my lp at more than 12 days). Still waiting to see what happens this cycle, but all good so far.

Wow that's great results! That surely must improve your fertility. Do you take any other b vitamins? I remember reading that you can/should take b6 with another b vit (don't remember which) to keep everything balanced (or something like that).

I take Maca, Ubiquinol (the pure form of CoQ10) and DHEA (I'm old with a low ovarian reserve).

Bloblo, thanks for mentioning that B6 lengthened your time until O as well! I already have slightly longer than usual cycles in that regard (I Oed on CD 15 or 16 last cycle) and don't want to delay it any longer than that. Doing some googling, it looks like that's a common side effect. I can live with a 12 day LP.

You should make sure that you get enough b12 and magnesium for b6 to be 100% effective. I have a diet high in b12 anyway (grass fed beef/lamb, eggs, cheese), so not taking any additional supplements.

Ive heard that it only lengthens follicular phase in the cases where your eggs need more time to develop, if you are already ovulating at the optimum time, then this part of cycle will not be longer due to b6. (But i cannot seem to confirm this with medical evidence).
Anyway, i agree, your 12day lp is probably long enough for successful implantation.
