    I'm feeling good, get extremely hungry e early in the morning and temps are looking good but that could be just the progesterone.

    I feel the same about you, we will give each other energy and willpower to push through till we both have those rainbows and parenting challenges.

    Hello! I'm new to this forum and fairly new to the world of baby making. This is our second month TTC. The first month I almost don't even count as I was going off the calendar method and most likely completely missed my O date.

    The second month, I bought a pack of OPK off amazon and didn't get a +OPK until CD17 on a 27/28 day cycle. We BD'd on CD8, 11, 13, 16 and 18 during what I thought would be my fertile window, and what actually ended up being my fertile window.

    Then I started reading about LPD, realizing I only had a LP of 9-10 days.

    My AF is supposed to start tomorrow, so I'm not holding my breath due to the LPD but I'm curious that I'm not spotting as much as I normally do before my AF.

    After doing a lot of reading, I decided to purchase a B6 and BComplex Vitamin to hopefully help my next cycle if we get a BFN of AF shows up tomorrow.

    Makes me feel so much better to read about other women in this situation that are able to sucessfully get a BFP with LPD.

    I had an LP of 6 days. I took B complex 2 cycles ago starting at cd 1 and it made me O really late. I was cd 50. So I got fed up and stopped taking it. I decided to take vitex and I ov'd 4 days later. I had a 9 LP.

    Last cycle I took vitex from cd 1. AFTER O, I took B complex along with vitex and I had a 14 day LP.

    I plan on taking Vitex after O this cycle and 1 tablet of B complex every second day :)

    Hi ladies!
    just wanted to share my experience with vitamin b complex...

    this is my first full cycle taking two b50 complex capsules a day (so 100mg) and already i've noticed:

    * O'd on CD18 instead of CD22
    * 8 day average LP up to 11 (and counting)
    * ewcm for 4 days around ovulation instead of only ½ day 4-5 days BEFORE O

    FX hoping this will do the trick!

    Hi Ladies,
    I have been reading through a little bit of this thread and it is encouraging to read the success stories!

    My cycles have always been irregular (45-60 days long) but when I charted during ttc #1 I had consistent LP of 12-13 days. This time TTC I did not want to wait 45-60 days in between cycles so I started taking 1000mg vitex daily to regulate my cycle. Well, sure enough, first cycle off the pill was 35 days, the bad thing was my LP was only 8 days. :( I thought it just had to do with coming off the pill so I continued with the Vitex. 2nd cycle was 32 days long, but LP was 7 days. What the heck? I was so depressed and confused at why my LP had shortened so much when it was consistent before and when I am now taking Vitex (I thought it was supposed to lengthen LP?).

    After reading about B6 I started taking it this cycle (started CD4-didn't get to the store until then) 50 mg daily along with the Vitex and my prenatal vitamin/mineral pill. I am hoping this will do the trick to lengthen my LP so I can get my bfp! I am now CD 9 and I noticed my temps the past few days are slightly higher than my normal range (I usually have lower temps, 96.3-97.0). Would B6 have an effect on this?

    Does anyone know if taking the B6 with the prenatal is good enough or do I need to take it with a B Complex pill?

    I'm new here but have been reading the thread from the start for about a month! It has filled me with much hope and positive vibes. I purchased some b100 complex from H&B and started then on Cd4 this cycle. I have definetly had less spotting than usual and no clots. For the last 3 cycles I have spotted brown old blood everyday from ovulation to my period. This is only when I wipe/check my cervix but this month although I have still had it most days it is far less..... FX it continues to work and maybe even stop next month!

    Hi everyone.
    I know this is an old thread but it has been very helpful to me so thanks.
    I started taking a b 50 complex at the beginning of my cycle because I had an 11 day lp with 1 or 2 days of brown spotting before af.

    Well, on 10dpo I started spotting and was disappointed that my lp hadn't lengthened. However after 2 days the spotting stopped and I am now on 15 dpo with high temps, no spotting and no af. I have never hap spotting that didn't turn into af.

    I am too scared of bfn to take a test. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Could the b complex just be causing a much longer lp?

    I'm going a little crazy.

    Thanks in advance

    I started b6/b12 about 6-7dpo. I have an 11 day luteal phase. 12dpo I started spotting brown at night (usually just start bright red bleeding right away in the morning). AF came the next morning so it was delayed a bit. 1 extra day so far! We will see about next cycle but hope I get a bfp instead!

    I think I have a short lf too. I'm still breastfeeding my 2 year old, am 38 years old and ovulated late when I used tests this month. Five days later my menstruation came. I had a miscarriage two months ago. I live in Holland but google sent me here ;) I've read good things about vit b. But how soon can I expect results? I take it for 1 week now, started 2 days after menstruation ended.

    Hi, I know this thread is old but I just wanted to say a huge thank you!
    My background, Iv been off the depo 15 months trying to concieve, I got my cycles back on April this year. Regular cycles with positive opks right in the middle. November I went to the dr's who did blood tests, my progresteron was only 18. She refered me to a fertility clinic.
    I saw this thread when googling how to boost progresterone. I started taking vitamin b complex on cd4 this cycle. I took 100 dose daily. We stopped trying this month as we though is couldn't happen until I had seen the fertility specialist. We just bd every 3 days for fun instead. I had more bloods done on cd21 and my progresterone had boosted from 18 to 23!! Not only that yesterday at 10dpo I got my BFP on a clear blue
    Digital!! I truly believe he vitamins helped. So thank you so much for the info! Praying for a sticky bean now : )

    Hi all. I know this is an old thread but hoping anyone out there can help? :blush:

    We're TTC#2 & while trying for our daughter we miscarried 3 times. I believe it's because I ovulate very late into my cycle - normally CD 22 - 23, I only normally make it to DPO 8 before AF arrives.

    I want to start taking B6 & B12. I can buy a B Complex which contains 50mg of each B vitamin. I'm just not sure if that's enough?

    Or I could buy just plain Vitamin B6 200mg & plain Vitamin B12 250mcg? Would that be too much?

    Any help appreciated!!! Thank you so much :hugs:
