Hiya fellow TTC's,

My luteal phase is hideously short and I have read about the benefits of taking Vitamin B complex. So I went to morrisons today and got their own 'Energy Vitamin B complex' which says it has B2, Niacin, B6 and B12 in it. It says its to help turn food into energy though.....
Is it the wrong kind? I didn't know there was more than one and now i'm really confused. Is that going to raise my progesterone or just make me super hyper after eating??? Hellpp!!

Define hideously short. How do you know? How long have you been ttc? Have you seen a GP?

I used a CBFM and peaked on 2nd and 3rd feb, then started to spot on the 8th, so 5/6DPO.
It was brown and lighter than Af. I have been getting it every month before my period and it lasts about a week, then Af comes. (since I came off the pill in august) so assumed period would start at around 12/13dpo but full on AF never came, was just the lighter bleed.
Think it must be my body settling after the pill, and that was my new lighter AF with less cramping as of this month. But it started 5/6/DPO which has me worried!

I'm sure I've read somewhere that you don't count it as being AF until it is red and requires pad/tampon. But I maybe wrong.

Hiya, still trying to find out if the vitamin complex I got is going to be ok? Please read first message and let me know, don't want to be having the wrong vitamins!

Hi Any I'm more of a lurker but I have the same thing and have done for months. We have been ttc number two for a number of months and I've just learned about the luteal phase. I've started on 50mg a day of vit b6. I think b6 is the key one that is supposed to help with hormones. Check the label as I found that some of the combined vits had quite small amounts of b6. I'm taking in combination with a pregnancy vitamin.

So far this cycle it's already working am on day 6 dpo and no spotting yet!

Thank you. Well, after 10 days of spotting thinking I had a nice new lighter unpainful AF, guess who has arrived in full unexplicable painful force? 7 days later than usual. I hate my body.....more so I hate the pill for what it has done to my body for ten years! Best go join the march bus then....
