i don't know about b12 but i take b-6 to lengthen my lutheal phase. which is the second part of your cycle for ovulation to your period it should be at least 10 day if not more mine was only 11 so i decided to take it and last month i added  two days to it. good luck

Yeah, I can definitely vouch for B6.  I'm 38 also and have been taking B6 for a few months now and it lengthened mine by 2-3 days.  I take 200mg daily but some people only take 100mg.

I was taking B6, my luteal phase was only 9 days, I lengethned it by 2 days to 11 and got my BFP that first month after taking the B6.

Did you try and just take prenatel vitamins instead? they have all you need with the right amounts you need. taking extra i hear can actaully effect your conceiving.

If you do have a short luteal phase, the B6 in a prenatal vitamin is not going to be enough.  I started taking an additional 100mg last cycle and it lengthened my cycle by 3 days.  This extra time will give an embryo more time to implant (if you did conceive) before your body would signal the start of AF and ruin all chances of conceiving.  Good luck!

Is PABA the same as taking B6 - as in does it do the same thing?  I have been taking 400 mg of PABA becuase I read that helps with conceiving (I am 35).  I am wondering if I should be taking the B6 instead?????

Trying to self diagnose and medicate is like playing Russian Roulette...have you heard about expert advice? The things that can be wrong with you and are stopping you from conceiving can be so many that the average person cannot even imagine...creating a baby, and more specifically a healthy baby is such a complex process that even real experts sometimes have to exert themselves to get it right! Try to do the right thing for the baby you are trying to conceive to start with...give him(her) a fair chance not only to arrive but to be as healthy as possible...a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing...talk to a Naturopath specialising in fertility! Good luck!
