Someone on the TTC board asked about vitamins/supplements that ladies were taking. Someone said that they were taking B6/B12 to lenghten their luteal phase. Has anyone ever heard of this? I'm taking them but for cardiovascular reasons, and I'm starting to wonder if this could be the reason why AF is late. I started to take them about two weeks ago and I'm only one day late. This just made me think if this is the reason why I'm a tad bit late. Anyone have any info?

I know it helps relieve m/s, but other than that I have no idea.

Hum, I'm not sure, but I did find that for lengthening luteal phase they suggest at least 50mg. The FDA says you should not exceed 100mg/day and I know from personal experience that tx for lowering homocysteine levels is only 25mg. I'm not sure how much you are taking, but maybe 25mg would be enough to help with cardiovascular issues, but not enough to bother your cycle. That's just a guess. It seems there's no clinical proof that it can lengthen your luteal phase, but a lot of anecdotal evidense. I alway kinda thought it was just good for making you have a more normal cycle. I never thought about what it would do if you were already normal. Wish I had more info for you.

Now that you mentioned this, I was told to take 100mg of B6 and 250mg of B12, but thats because I have two copies. I've done some online research but after reading some articles I just don't see the correlation between the two (B6 and LP). Thanks for the info ladies.

I had taken B-6 and B Complex and my LP went from 9-10 days to around 13-14. I'm a believer! I did 100 mg of B-6 and not sure about the B-complex. It was so long ago!
