Hey lovely, was it you who said you're taking B6 to extend your LP? Thinking of dropping the pregnacare - there is quite a lot of negative stuff about it online, and I can relate to some of it so would prefer to try something else next cycle (if AF ever turns up!)

Hello! My oWn thread. How exciting!! Yes I do take B6. I took it with TTC last time and it increased my lp by 3 days the first month of using it. I conceived the second month on it. There is a lot of debate online about how much to take. I just take the boots own version which is a fairly low dose but it seemed to do the trick. Started at the beginning of this cycle so can't comment on how well it's worked this time yet.

*crash*. Figaro what was the bad stuff you read about Pregnacare??? Interested because I've been taking it since September

Lack of stretchy EWCM, constant cramps and stretching, and weight gain are the three I noticed this month and others online seem to have had it too. On my phone at the mo but will find the links and post them when I'm home. I put on half a stone this month, which completely stumped me because I haven't done anything differently, other than the pregnacare. It seems to be like Marmite, either really positive reviews or really negative!

Hmmm this is interesting. I don't get EWCM and I defo put on weight but that might be due to over eating lol. What are the other options then for a multi vitamin???

Not sure if Boots/Superdrug own brands have the same reviews. I was only taking it to extend my LP, so if B6 does the same then I'll just swap to that instead.

Oh, and start taking folic acid separately again.

I'm going to start taking vit b6 next cycle I think - I normally spot for 3-4 days prior to AF and ive started to already which means af is def on the way :( I've read that taking b complex is better as b6 alone can stop some other b vits from absorbing or something? My LP is only 10-12 days so I'm hoping it will increase.x
