I wondered if anybody can give me a bit of advice please as am starting to send myself into a bit of a panic.
I had a m/c in January and have been TTC since then. I am using persona and also OPKs to chart ovulation and have noticed that my AF seems to be starting exactly 10 days after OV. This means that my luteal phase is now 10 days exactly. I used to be 28 days (so 14 days after ov) on the dot but now my cycles seem to be 25 / 26.
I have been reading lots of info on the web (yes I know can be dangerous) and it seems to say that 10 days is on the low side and am starting to panic that this will mean that I won't be able to get pregnant !!
Any advice would be great as am in a bit of a flap

I've always had a short LP, between 8-11 days, usually 10. I have been pg 4 times, 2 ended in m/c and two produced my lovely dd and ds. A short LP shouldn't prevent pregnancy at all, which you've already proven as you have managed to get pg. Good luck.

If anything it makes the 2ww a bit easier as you only have to wait 10 days

I think one fo the B vitamins is supposed to help - can't remember which offhand - sorry.
