Has anyone tried this to bring on ovulation/PPAF? What dose did you take? And did it work for you? How long did it take?

I've been taking 100 mg for about a month, I ran out of pills and got the 200 mg and have been taking them for a week or two now. Still nothing, but I am still nursing quite often, so I guess I'm not REALLY expecting AF...but wouldn't mind getting it back so we can think about TTC. My son is night weaned but nurses about every 2-4 hours (occasionally going 5 hrs but rarely) during the day. He gets solids twice a day as well.

I started taking 100 mg of B6 about 2 or 3 months before my period came back. I have no idea when I ovulated after my first period but after my second period I ovulated on CD 15 and got pregnant. So, it definitely worked for me!

I didn't use it for returning ovulation/PPAF but started it to regulate my ovulation and LP. 100mg didn't do anything but 200mg did - for two cycles at least, but then it went back to short again. However I think my issue is less related to nursing so it won't do any harm for you to take it and see anyways if it works. I wouldn't expect it to bring on your ovulation before your body is naturally ready but by taking it it might help your hormones be more balanced when it does return!

Hi. Im Jolene. 31 years old. I suffered three years of a short luteal phase and didnt think I could get pregnant again without medical assistance but fell pregnant by accident and naturally. I am really happy and excited to be having a baby although knowing Im going it alone this time is a bit daunting and scary!
