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.
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.
