    Thumbs down Short Luteal Phase

    Hi ladies, I was hoping to get some advice.

    My history when TTC #1: I had 25-28 day cycles, ovulated between CD15-18, luteal phase was 8 to 11. I fell pregnant on my 5th cycle.

    We are now TTC #2. I just started my 3rd cycle.
    1st cycle was 28 days with a LP of 12 days.
    2nd cycle was 27 days with a LP of 9 days.

    My concern is my short LP and seeing it get even shorter than before. I have made an appointment to see my Doctor on Monday morning. I'm 36 years old and don't feel time is really on my side.

    What are generally the questions the doctor will ask me? What are my options to extend my LP? What are natural and what are the side effects of some of the options available?

    Any advice or knowledge at all would be highly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read

    Updating...

    I went to the Doctor on Monday and discussed my concerns with him. He didn't understand what I meant about the SLP so I explained it to him. He still didn't seem to think that I would have any problems as "It only takes 5 days for the egg to implant". I thought it was from day 6-12?

    He didn't want to give me anything, talked me out of Progesterone cream as apparently it was a 'fad' and caused a lot of miscarriages.

    I suggested B6 which he said I could possibly have.

    Anyway, after all that I have a form to get 21 day bloods done to check my progesterone levels I assume? I mean I already told him I take my temp and check CM so I know I am ovulating and when.

    I'm CD8 now, so 2 weeks to go.

    Oh Bubby how frustrating! I've read in quite a few places that implantation is from day 7. Hope your bloods give you some clues.
