    Default Short Luteal Phase and IVF

    Just realised mid my first IVF cycle that my luteal phase up until this point has been 10 or 11 days at an absolute push.

    Does the progesterone drugs push the cycle out longer and does the extension stop once you finish them?

    If you had a short luteal phase are you on extra progesterone support?

    Im intrigued as to what is going to happen over the next few days as period will be due on Saturday bit but blood test isnt until Wednesday?

    Hey Vivre,

    What kind of progesterone support are you one? I have a significant luteal phase defect which was solved with crinone for one cycle and injections for the other (ordinary pessaries did not help me). It kept AF away until I stopped using them (the failed cycle) and kept my levels high for the successful cycle. I had to be on progesterone support until week 14 of my pregnancy.
