AF showed on 11 dpo. Not sure if this means I have a short LP.

Awe, I'm sorry to hear that Trish!! It sounds, however, like you're ready for this upcoming cycle!! A lot of women swear by Vitex if they have a short LP...you might think about calling your OB/GYN or the nurse and see if they would think it'd be okay for you to try. You can find it at any vitamin store.

Good luck!! Can't wait to hear that AF packed her bags and you're waiting to O!

Thanks so much for the advice, Tammy! I will look into taking vitex for sure. Anything to move this process along! : )

Stupid af!! I'm trying to lengthen my lp too. This is my first month temping so I'm hoping to confirm O & figure out my lp for sure. I've been taking B complex since January & started taking vitex this cycle too.

Not sure if you know but only take epo until O. Good luck :)

That's no good!! Man AF has been absolutely viscious this month!! Let's hope she is getting it out of the way this month and will take it easy on us next month!

AF has been vicious this month! Not cool at all...

Thanks for the EPO advice. I'm taking 2000mg/day until O. I'm also taking 50mg/day of B6. If that doesn't seem to help this cycle, I'll up it and add the Vitex to the mix. So many pills to swallow!

Do you take the vitamin B right through the cycle? I took B6 when I was TTC my DS, but now I can't remember when I stopped... now that I think about it, an LP defect may explain the bleeding I had early on in that pregnancy. I spotted from week 5 to week 9. It was sooooo stressful! Hmmm....

I was at the pharmacy the other day & saw those plastic weekly pill holders & thought boy do i need one of those!! I'd need a pretty big one to fit everything in lol! I take b complex the whole cycle but I'm not sure if I'll continue it once I get that glorious bfp. I know it's safe to take during pregnancy but I'll probably wait & confirm with a dr first. I can't imagine how stressed you were spotting so much!! Fx'd you don't need to deal with that this time around

Good luck :)
