FX for you Wobbler!!!
Hi ladies, looks like I'm coming over to join you here. Af due tomorrow. 11dpo today and bfns today and yesterday, do thinking she will come on time.
Can I please be put down for the 20th? Maybe its good luck... Its a close family members 18th
Thanks Channy and LowAMH why does everyone think as soon as you hit 30 your ovaries shrivel and dry up or something!? So much pressure! Argh! I usually do tell them to put their opinions in their backsides, but the irresponsible and selfish comment threw me! Best of luck to everyone in this thread
I have decided to not take vitex or EPO this cycle and see what happens. Just temp and DTD 3 times a wk and hp I don't have another weird long cycle. I'm feeling optimistic even tho in only cd2
A few Quick questons ladies....
At what stage would you consider your lp too short?
What things can be done to increase it? Is it vitex or b6? If so, how much do you take and when?
My lp used to be about 15 days, but since having ds its sitting around 11, and im wondering if it might be a problem?
Shadow, 10dpo is considered the shortest it can be to fall pregnant, but would be better to be longer. I think 12-14 days is best. I'm not sure on the stuff to take. Are you breastfeeding? I'm bfing ds2 still so can't take anything for a short lp but mine went from 9-10dpo to 13-14dpo by itself.
Channy, i hope this relaxed approach works for you xx. When i was ttc ds2 we got to the 12mth and were on holidays so i didn't temp or opk the whole month and we just dtd every second day and got lucky.

Anyway, B vitamins are supposed to help with luteal phase length...i've also heard they're safe to take during pregnancy as well.
Edit: you can take B vits throughout your cycle but best taken before O... the theory goes that before O the follicles are developing and when you O that follicle turns/developes into the corpus luteum. So egg/follicle quality will influence corpus luteum quality which produces progesterone etc that make your luteal phase a certain length etc.

Nah indigo, im not bf.. Much to my disgust he refused it from 4 months once af came back. How long did it take to change?
Thanks botched. I might have to read up and see if it might be worth it for me.
