Short Luteal Phase

Me and dh have been ttc dc2 for a year now, and so far we've had no luck.
We have conceived twice before both times within a few months and at that time, my luteal phase was 14 days.
I seem to have a regular cycle of about 29/30 days but I don't ovulate until about day 20/21. My luteal phase it about 9 or 10 days. I've tried vit b6 for three months to try and lengthen my luteal phase but it did nothing, I've also tried progesterone cream which has also had no affect. The last two months I've been using soya isoflavones, which I'd read could make ovulation happen earlier, but nothing happened using that.
Is there anything else that I can try....?

There are threads about this on the go, intermittently, think one has 'the luteal phase gang' in the title - but have a look and there will be lots of advice, stories of what others are trying etc there.

I can sympathise, but unfortunately I can't offer any advice; I've tried all the same things as you to no avail. I am now under way with fertility referral and having lots of different tests done.

The luteal phase gang isn't very active, but you will most likely find others with short luteal phases in some of the established group threads. I'm on the elderberries, which I can recommend if you're over 30?!
