Vitamin B Thoughts

Hello ladies, Is anyone taking any type of vitamin B besides a prenatal vitamin?? I've had two miscarriages this year ....8/22 and 12/6. They have ruled out Thromobophilia and I am awaiting results of chromosome abnormality tests they took of my husband and I Iast week. The doctor said we will try progesterone supplements when I become pregnant again.I have read somewhere on these posts (and can't find it now....) that it is good to take vitamin B. Your opinions or experiences would be appreciated.

My progesterone levels jumped dramatically after a few months of vitamin B complex therapy.

Erin, Can you tell me specifically which type of B's you take? How many per day? Have you had a successful pregnancy?

I had a successful pregnancy years ago, but not again as of recent years. Although my progesterone was low with that pregnancy and I did not take supplements. I self medicated after my 4th mc with double the recommended folic acid and 5x the recommended B6 and B12. My progesterone level before was 11. After two months of the B vitamins it was 26 and 27. I am actually pregnant again now, but don't really want to talk about it yet as it is very early and I don't want to set myself up for more disappointment.

I took pills at first, by the way, but then switched to something called emergen-C which has very large doses of vitamin C (good for keeping colds away), but also really high amounts of B6 and B12, although not much folic acid. So I continued to take the folic acid pill. Emergen-C is a powder you mix with water and tastes OK. You can drink two or three of them a day. I am now on a prescription B complex called FOLTX because I was diagnosed with a chromosomal mutation that inhibits the bodies abilitiy to process B vitamins. But my progesterone levels did go up from the self medication before learning about my condition. Good luck to you and I would definitely recommend giving it a try.

Thank you so much Erin for all the information. My husband works at a nutrition store and i'll ask him to look into it. Best of luck to you. I wish you lots of baby dust.
