Vitex/Vit B6 Success Stories? Looking for Hope.

I'll be 30 at the end of this month and my BF will be 40 in December...time is ticking for us! I have a 10 year old girl from a previous relationship and he has a 17 year old son from his previous marriage.

We've been TTC for 15 months. We saw the medical doctor in June and he suspects a Luteal Phase Defect. But we had to be referred to a OB/GYN and our appointment isn't until November 6. In the last 15 months we have had 2 chemical pregnancies, a blighted ovum & two 5-6 week miscarriages....our latest one being last night. Today I purchased and started taking Vitamin B6 and Vitex (dubbed the natural Clomid) hoping to lengthen my Luteal Phase.

Has anyone taken this before? Any success stories out there? I am so tired of seeing positive pregnancy tests and not being able to carry beyond 6 weeks!!

I'm so very sorry about your losses :smileysad: I've seen a lot of women on the boards have success using B6 and Vitex to lengthen their luteal phase. I really hope that you'll see an improvement on it. It stinks that you have to wait so long to see the ob/gyn, is there a reason he didn't refer you to a RE instead (reproductive endocrinologist)? If you haven't posted on there yet, the ladies on the TTC After Miscarriage board might have some other suggestions for you: http://forums.ivillage.com/ivillage/?category.id=iv-ppttcmiss
