Hi,
My cycles are around 31 days, ovulating on around day 21 and my LP is around 9 days. This is obviously not good when TTC
Anybody taken/taking agnus castus. What MG did you take? I've read different things.
Yes I will be contacting gp beforehand but they don't have any appointments left today so wanted to get a rough idea of what others take.

@Jessiemay2020 to be honest it doesn't sound like your cycle is too out of whack to mess around with agnus castus, it can be quite powerful. How long have you been trying?

@Stabal been trying since January. I do have 2 children but they're from a previous relationship. I'm just concerned about my luteal phase being only 9 days and progesterone levels being low. Also with them being low not giving implantation a very good start. I was never concerned at a 31 day cycle as it isn't overly long but the late ovulation has worried me.

@Jessiemay2020 I would maybe look into soy isoflavones which you take to induce ovulation. They work like clomid. Agnus castus could mess up your cycle completely and really only should be used if you're not ovulating at all. 🤞 for you!

@Stabal oh wow thank you so much, looked into that and sounds perfect!! Success stories are great too. Thank you x
