TTC with a short cycle

Anyone else here with a short cycle of 24 days and a short luteal length?

Really struggling and wondering if I should see a doctor?

What is the length of your luteal phase? A doctor can’t increase it but taking vitamin b6 might...

Just 7 days I think sad

Unfortunately there’s nothing a doctor can do to correct your cycle length. Mine is currently 9 days but I’ve just managed an 11 day luteal phase last cycle.

I would look at ways you can lengthen. I would highly recommend looking at your diet, starting fertility acupuncture & looking at the vitamins you’re taking.

What are you doing currently to lengthen your luteal phase?

Have a read of this.

Mine was 25 days. However I was super overweight, ate crap and had just come of the back of a pregnancy loss. I did acupuncture (for a good few months, every other weekend), sorted out exercise, diet and 3 months of thyroid medication, got pregnant the first month it moved out to28. Worth getting a few blood tests to see if anything is underlying cause.
