I have always had really regular 28/29 day cycles and guessed from signs/conceiving other pregnancies (never charted or opk'd before) that I ov'd around CD12-CD14.
I have fallen pregnant 3 times - have 2 dds and had one mmc three months ago. Simce the miscarriage my cycles have been 28 then 27 now 26 days. On the last cycle I charted and had a temp rise on CD17 - fertility friend had me ov'ing on CD16 - much later than I imagined - giving me a LP this cycle of only 10 days.
So to cut to the chase
1. Is it normal for cycles to 'shorten'like this after a miscarriage
2. Whats happened to my LP. How can it be so short? Surely in order to have conceived so readily before it must have been longer. Is there anything I can do?
After my mc the first proper cycle (as in I had my next period and this was the following cycle) had short LP of 11 days. Every cycle since has had a LP of 14. So mine did shorten yes but only short term.
I'm sorry I know it isn't much help when you are still having short LP's but a mc I think does mess things up and maybe it is just taking a while for your body to re-adjust?
There are things you can do to lengthen an LP but I don't really know what. Is it vitamin B6? Hopefully someone will give you the answer.
thanks for your replies, interesting that others have had similar experience.
Not much i can do but wait and see i know but having read TCOYF ikeep trying to work out whats going on all the time. In the past I never really worried about it. In a way ignorance was less stressful!
