A lot of women, myself included, have success using B complex to lengthen their luteal phases. Often after coming off BCP women find their LP is too short (less than 10 or 11 days), which can result in a fertilized egg being unable to implant in the uterine lining, as it starts to shed (i.e. you get your period) too soon after ovulation.

If your LP is a normal length (10-11 days or longer) this likely isn’t something you need to worry about.

From what I learned this morning thanks to the lovely TTC gurus, it helps lengthen your luteal phase. Might have more benefits that I’m not sure of, but someone might chime in with more information.

I’ll be watching this since I’m not really sure either. I did start taking it, because I’ve been spotting for several days b/f my period starting, but my LP is long enough if you don’t count the spotting.

@lroetheli:  If you have spotting before your period, that is a classic indication of Low Progesterone which is something you need to see a Dr about.  Low Progesterone can prevent sufficient lining for implantation and if implantation does occur it can also be a cause of early miscarriage.  Treating low progesterone is really easy and not expensive. I would contact your doctor and ask for a progesterone test (7 days past ovulation). I use a prescription progesterone cream from O-the end of my cycle (I rub it on my belly).

I take B6 to help with my low progesterone- however, B-complex doesn’t contain much B6 (only 50mg) At my dr’s direction I take 500 mg of B6 daily. I also take B complex, but for general health not TTC.

My experience with B complex is that it did NOT help with my spotting, but did make AFG heavier (it was really light prior and I was worried about lining issues).  Many women take it to lengthen their LP, but I had a normal LP anyway, so did not notice a change.

It can lengthen LP, and has been rumored to regulate O, and thicken uterine lining =)

@septcabride:  Right, sorry I wasn’t clear about that, alone B6 won’t solve all spotting- but it does help with progesterone production when taken at the 500mg level in addition to some sort of progesterone support (cream, pills, shots).

 @ChuckNorris:  Good to know- I always associated it solely with progesterone. Curious at what level B-complex is taken to support these things.
