TTC with short cycles

Has anyone successfully conceived with shorter cycles?

I’m 35 and trying to conceive #3, been 10 years since my last. I caught first month with both of them but didn’t track periods so not sure how long my cycles were back then and was on Cerazette for 6+ years before trying this time.

My cycles have been as follows:
#1 22 days / OV CD11 / 11 day LP
#2 25 days / OV CD12 / 13 day LP
#3 23 days / OV CD11 / 12 day LP
#4 25 days / OV CD11 / 14 day LP
#5 25 days / OV CD12 / 13 day LP
#6 20 days / OV CD7 / 13 day LP
#7 24 days / OV CD11 / 13 day LP
#8 22 days / OV CD11 / 11 day LP

On cycle 6 I stopped taking b vitamins which is why I think I ovulated early then and had a shorter cycle so started taking them again for cycle 7 and then on cycle 8 I was taking wild yam root tablets so I stopped them too.

I’d like to have a longer cycle, so the eggy gets to mature more. Trying not to stress this cycle but really don’t think this is the month either.

Any ideas to try lengthen the cycle of help the eggs mature? Or any positive short cycle BFP stories?

I’d be interested in hearing successful stories too. My cycles have gradually been getting shorter since coming off the pill (most recent being 23 days). And I have been ovulating around CD13/14 which gives me a very short luteal phase which concerns me...

Hi @LosingtheTTCplot wondered if you’re still on here? Just searched for people trying to conceive with short cycles and came across this! Your story sounds very similar time mine. Wondered how you’re getting on? Fingered crossed x

Hi @Nat4392 just searching for trying to conceive with short cycles and came across this thread. Wondered if you’re still on here and how you’re getting on. Your situation sounds very similar to mine. Fingers crossed x

Is anyone on this thread still out there? It really seems that short cycle lengths are rare — I’m really not seeing many people talk about this. I’m on the super short side, cycle wise. Ranges from the very occasional 25 days, but more frequently 21,22 and lately even 20 days. Ttc a few months but almost 39 so heading to a fertility doc ASAP. Would love to hear about other’s journeys..

Just to let you all know, I fell pregnant a couple of months after this post but had a mmc which had a long recovery and no AF due to complications.

I successfully conceived this year and currently 28 weeks pregnant!

One thing I took when I got pregnant both times was Ubiquinol and stopped taking it after the mc but started again a couple of months before I got pregnant this time. Also had some acupuncture x
