    I think the high amount of vit B6 in my pregnacare conception has made my cycle longer and delayed ovulation, my cycle is usually 35-42 days, last cycle 42 days... Today cd 39 and ive just got a Peak on my cbfm :wacko:
    Does anyone take B6 just from ovulation or will it not work doing that, do you have to take it all cycle? Is there any other natural/vit way to increase your luteal phase? i think i ovulated cd 29/30 last cycle so that would make it 12/13 days, but im asking as ov is really late this cycle so maybe i didnt ov when i thought i did, therefore ive got a short luteal phase.

    I started Vitamin B complex 2 months ago, and have ended up with Ov date of CD20, CD23.... much later that usual, when it would normally be CD12-16.

    I did a google search tonight, there's quite a few ladies have reported this SE, so I am going to stop taking it until I Ov this month, so today (CD11) is my last one for now.

    I think that with vitamins and supplements you never know until you try, EPO totally affected my cycle also. I wish I'd never bothered with any of this and just stuck with folic acid :shrug:
