I never heard of LP until we started ttcing #3 so had no idea what mine were. My cycles are normally 29 days and ov on cd19/20 so have at most a 10 day luteal phase, my last cycle was 25 days and ov on cd20 so only a 5 day LP. I've been reading that those with less than 12 days can have problems conceiving. I don't know if my cycle as always been this way as I never charted, tested etc before when I conceived dd1 and dd2 so now I'm worrying it's changed since having them and will now have problems getting pregnant again. Anyone else worrying about this or have this and still conceived easily?
We are TTC #1 and I have short lp, usually 9/10 days. I've started taking b50 complex vits and last cycle my lp extended to 13 which was great, apart from AF obviously being late raising my hopes of bfp! We are going into cycle six now so not sure what is delaying things, perhaps lp
Thanks ladies DH had a vasectomy reversal and not had tests done to confirm success yet we've started the ttcing on the assumption all is fine, but now I can't help but worry that maybe there'll be something 'wrong' with me now :/ knowing of others with short LP makes me feel better though I expect the chances are my LP has always been short and previous dd's didn't take too much effort I'm hoping my cycle is back to normal length again this month to give me a 9/10 day LP X
Hi spamanderson. I've had problems with my lp, took 7 months to conceive ds1, 12 months to conceiveds2. After trouble ttc #3, I read about soy isoflavones. It's apparently nature's clomid. So, I decided to bite the bullet and give it a try. It's supposed to lengthen lp and improve egg quality. You take in same way as clomid (days 3-7 or 5-9 in your cycle). I opted for 100mg on 3-7. It was my first go this month, I got my bfp this morning at 13dpo! Docs had refused to prescribe clomid when ttc ds2 (as I already had one child). I just tried this out of desperation, and am gobsmacked that it's worked!
Anyway, sorry for rambling, but thought I would mention it as u sound to have a similar issue to me. Good luck and baby dust to u xx
Hi beansprout. My cycle before soy was 24 days, ov around cd 18. After taking soy on 3-7, I ov'd on cd 15 this month. I started with implantation bleeding at 11dpo, bfp at 13 dpo, so not sure what it would have extended my full cycle to. Guessing 28 days or so tho.
Good luck if u do decide to go ahead with it. Fc and baby dust to you x
Thank you everyone cycle so far this month is 27 days, and currently 9dpo. Think AF will arrive in the morning though even though I've had tonnes of preggy symptoms I've just ordered the soy with my tesco delivery so am going to give it a go was really hoping that by some miracle we'd fall super fast this time Happy new year all
Thank you everyone who gave advice, just wanted to update that I got my BFP on New Year's Day at 10DPO, the day before AF was due :D we're so massively lucky to have conceived on cycle 1, against the odds really as DH was only operated on 2 weeks before we started TTC-ing :D
