    Well, that's another benefit to the Bs, huh. Cool. OH is taking it too. Partially because of the stress benefits but he said he looked into it and it's supposed to be good for him to. I asked in what way, but he didn't know exactly, just good for guys and TTC. So we're rolling through the B complex in our house.

    "Fxd it will do its magic for you and make your LP so long that you will only see the witch in 9 months time "

    I'm hoping for this too, Tella. Thanks. :)

    My DH is also on it with me. Great for stress levels and energy for spermies!

    My DH also takes a sperm specific supplement with vit c, zinc, vit e and folic acid in it. The folic acid is also a part of b12 vitamin which helps with the dna of the sperm.

    I've been reading page after page of this thread and decided to post so it would be bumped.

    I'm in my 9th month TTC. I fell pregnant in October, December, January and February. (4 out of the last 5 months.) All chemicals. I have an LP of 8-10 days on cycles I didn't fall pg. I went to the Dr. last week to talk about my TTC issues. And he said its probably a combination of back to back pregnancy and my age. He didn't seem concerned and said if I have another loss I will be referred to the infertility specialist. When I brought up my LP, he said that it can't be short every cycle or I wouldn't have had losses at 20-21dpo. He just advised to "keep trying".

    I don't get it. How is 8-10 days not short? How would I know my LP on cycles I fell pregnant? My LP would be 19-20 days? And age? I'm 30, I didn't feel like that would be an issue.

    Anyways, I started B6 2 days ago... And I will update this thread on what happens. I'm taking a prenatal and 100mg B6.

    Try B Complex rather than just B6 as the other B vitamins are good too. Hope it works for you! My LP went from 7-8 days to 11-12.

    b6 is for LP but pls be careful of taking more than 100mg per day as they say it can cause nerve damage. b12 is to assist with egg quality and strong ovulation. I would also recommend a Complex but use that one up first.

    BComplex helped to bring my lp back to 13 from 11/12 days.

    And 9-10 days is FAR to short! you need 11/12min for a late implanter to produce enough hcg to not shred the lining.

    Maybe look into progesterone supplements or natural progesterone creme that you can get over the counter.

    im so sorry for all your losses :hugs:

    Wow! So sweet your words. I'm in tears. Thank you! I'm taking exactly 100mg B6 and my prenatal has none in it. Just very little B1 and B12.

    I will try just the B6 to start and then go from there. I don't think progesterone is what I need yet. I'm thinking its my lining? And B6 should help with everything. I will just keep trying.

    I'm sorry its taking you this long TTC, hun! I don't really know what to say. You will be one amazing Mother. And it'll be worth this long tortuous journey. :hugs:

    aww thanks angel, its been a hard journey but believe it will truely be worth it soon. as long as I dont give up I still have a chance :winkwink:

    yes definitely first finish your container, ttc is expensive and not wasting meds is key.

    look progesterone is the hormone that is in charge of building a 3 layer lining and maintaining your LP. if you had enough Progesterone you wouldnt have a short lp and low levels of progesterone is to blame for most early losses. when I get my next bfp and if im not on treatment then I will start immediately just as a precaution. Progesterone supplement wont do any harm, its actually essential to balance your estrogen so that you dont become estrogen dominant.

    b12 helps with the production of progesterone by strengthening the corpus luteum after O to sustain the LP.

    sorry for thw info overload, im bit of a research freak :haha:

    <3 That you are a research freak! thank you! I will look into my own Progesterone supplement later on today. Do you just use it if you fall pregnant? or from a certain dpo?

    I'm glad you aren't giving up! You have this. Its worth the fight. how are you feeling about this cycle?

    On timed cycles/natural cycles you start on 3dpo and on ART cycles you start from 1dpo.

    And if you get pregnant you stay on it till 12 weeks and wean of it as the placenta takes over the progesterone production.

    Thanks :flow:

    Im feeling good, have a few different symptoms and i take that as good but im only 5dpo so still another week before testing so just hanging in there. We are doing a medicated cycle to help O and implantation so have a bit more hope than a natural cycle.

    Timed/Natural or Art? I don't know the difference. I do OPK and take O day as day after my positive.

    The cream? I might have to try this.

    I'm glad you have more HOPE! I hope with all my heart you will see a lovely sticky BFP in a weeks time.

    Ok firstly you only O 24-36hrs after a +opk so it is very important that you try and continue to BD to get as much spermies in there before O. Alot of ladies will only confirm O with temperatures on the second day after +opk.

    Natural Cycles is like you doing now, Timed is with meds but nothing else to help spermies like using artificial insimination (iui) or IVF. IUI and IVF is forms of ART (Assisted reproduction treatment)

    I truly believe that you will get your rainbow if you just manage to supplement your progesterone it might be as simple as B6 or if needs be progesterone suppositories but that you only get on a script. But i have seen loads of girls have success with the creme as well, i have used it as well and it work 100%

    I'm thinking about trying the cream. I would start it at 3dpo. I should definitely O by then with my calculation. Can you get to much progesterone?

    If that's true about the OPKs, my LP could even be worse. :(

    I'm not getting a script for some time. I have to be referred to the infertility clinic. But, that won't happen unless I have another loss. And I hope I won't.

    no you can't get to much progesterone. on IVF cycle i used 400mg suppositories and the creme isnt even close to that. and the medical ones are micronised so much stronger than natural progesterone. so you more than safe.

    you can either apply it on your stomach or inner tighs or you also get ones that you can insert vaginally which is what I used.

    lete know which one you manage to get.

    I would use it, you obviously get pregnant easily so this might just do it for you.

    do you have to prove your chemical? if not then just say you had another one this cycle if it is a bfn so that you can be referred.

    Do you know... I feel like God sent me you? I bought the cream by Source Naturals after doing homework.

    And yes! I will do that about the DR. Lets get this show on the road.

    I was down yesterday, prayed... And now I feel like my hope has been reborn. Feels better to me trying something then doing nothing.

    Just keep in mind - when you're on progesterone, it has side effects. Specifically, false pregnancy symptoms, and if it's High enough, you can delay your period. You have to stop taking it to get your period to start.
    Hoping the cream will give you the boost you need! GL!

    awwww Thanks girl, makes me feel very special and if He can use me to help a fellow tfc or ttcal girl make me feel like everything I'm going through is worth it somehow.

    I truly believe that He puts people on our path for a reason and love being a tool for Him!

    I agree, why do they get to decide when you have suffered enough losses, any loss should be treated as the last and try and prevent the next. soon you will have a sticky bean and all this heartache will be forgotten.

    :hugs: :hug: :hugs: :hug: :hugs: :hug: :hugs: :hug:
