Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Short Luteal Phase But Got BFP

Hello everyone, I scanned this site always looking for extra hints. I had a luteal phase of about 6-8 days, I had one or two cycles where it made it to 10. I knew I needed Clomid and was impatiently waiting for my fertility appointment following all the tests..very frustrating.

If like me you have a short luteal phase do not take Evening Primrose as it delays ovulation. This cycle I decided to take two tablets of Tesco complex b supplement a day, this is supposed to help progesterone levels. I know it says one a day but after reading it couldn't harm me I took two a day from ovulation.

My cycle went on unusually long up to 30 days and I thought the complex b had began to work in lengthening my cycle (usually about 27days). I had some light spotting and was expecting my period the day later which is usual for me, but when I got to day 32 and no period arrived we did a test and I was BFP!!!!!! no doubt. I have had blood tests and been to BEP clinic (because of the spotting) and there is really a baby growing in there.

Hope this helps someone on here. Also the doctor can prescribe Clomid which my first doc said she couldn't, but I later found out they can..so if you have short luteal phase get your bloods done and ask for Clomid while you wait for fertility appointment and take complex b twice the rec dose.

Thanks a ton for the info, I had no idea that evening primrose oil delays ovulation! Congratulations, and thanks for sharing your symptoms.

Hey there, Congrats! Did you continue taking the B-Complex after your BFP?  or did the doctor say it was okay to stop taking it?
