10DPO, and Counting

No, I don't think there is any chance I am pregnant. But my LP has been only 10 days for the last 4 cycles or so. Might I actually get 11 days out of this cycle? I supplemented with a balanced 50 B-complex this month. I wonder if it made a difference? It sure didn't make me O earlier--CD24 this month, which is kind of ridiculous.

I ordered new vitamins, which should be here tomorrow. Something called Optivite. There are some studies out there suggesting that short LP is due to problems earlier in the cycle, and other studies showing that increasing B6 can solve the problems. It all makes sense to me in technical terms, but I'm too tired to explain it better. Anyway, I thought I'd try the supplements for the next month or two, before turning to Clomid. Optivite is really intended to ease PMS, but the vitamins are recommended for women with short LP, too. I'm a little sketched out about them, as I couldn't find them locally anywhere. I suppose I could've simply supplemented B6 further on my own, but it seemed easier to take a single supplement. Has anyone tried Optivite?

No assvice, but good luck stretching out your LP.

I have never heard of Optivite, but let me know what you think. After my D&C, my LP ran between 6-10 days. I started taking a B6 supplement in March and FINALLY my LP has been 12-13 days for the last three cycles. I don't know if the B6 is what helped, or maybe just giving it more time but it made me feel better.
