Hello ladies. I am looking into prenatal vitamins to begin in January and wanted to know how much B6 any of you have taken and not gotten sick. My prenatal I have picked has 15mg of B6, but since my leutal phase is only 9 days right now I was thinking of taking more B6 by itself to see if that helps. I have found 100mg for really cheap but I worry 115mg+ whatever I get from food may be too much, I have also found a 50mg. Most websites say anything over 100mg is getting dangerous for toxicity. What have your experiences been? Should I wait and see if the B6 in the prenatal does anything to my leutal phase, it seems like such a small amount but it's 600% of DV!

I had a luteal phase defect when I started TTC, and I started on 100mg of B6 per day. In just a few cycles, it lengthened my LP from 5 days to 10 days. I had an early m/c due to my LPD. But I kept up with the B6 regimen, and I am now almost 7 weeks pregnant. I will sing the praises of B6 forever!

Everything I read on the subject said that more than 200mg of B6 can lead to nerve damage. Anything less than that is just fine.

I suggest you start with 50mg daily. If you don't get the results you want, up the dosage to 100mg daily.

Good luck.

Hm, maybe I found 100mg because I was browsing Medical websites. Not TTC websites relating to B6 and the leutal phase. Thank you, and congrats on your PG!

Yeah, I chose not to jump up to 200mg because that just seemed like too much. The 100mg, though, worked wonders.

I work on a neuro unit and our pharmacist said anything over 100mg/day and I'd end up a patient on my unit. I take 50 mg daily right now and it seems to be helping.

Good luck! B6 was truly my miracle, and the reason I was able to stick a pregnancy.

And an added bonus, it also seems to be helping with my morning sickness now that I am pregnant. I'm still taking 50mg per day.

A wonderful vitamin indeed!

Definitely worth looking at, the prenatals I have only have 2.6 mg.

I used it both times I was TTC and it worked wonders. I had charted for a few months beforehand and noticed how short my LP was (7-8 days) so started taking B6 (I believe that it was 50mg/day). It helped lengthen my LP to 10-11 days over the course of 2-3 months.

I have two beautiful kiddos.
