    @Rachi321 so that means you would most probably ovulate on CD 17 or 18 so vitex should help bring your O date closer to CD14. It can take a few cycles to help regulate things a bit.

    As soon as i started taking vitex, i did notice some mid cycle spotting, which is from my hormones regulating (according to my naturopath). I then got a very very strong positive OPK along with O cramping. But my luteal phase was far too short even if we did concieve.

    CD3 here atm so im hoping o see my O date much earlier this cycle (CD24 last cycle.

    Hey! Seems like we're in a similar boat.
    28, TTC #1, month 3, about to ovulate, last 2 months based on OPK I had two 10 day luteal phases. My Dr wasn't too worried about it. I read a study that taking flaxseed can increase the length of your LP by 1-2 days.

    @CcegG yes we do sound the same .. Crossing my fingers for you.. Yeah I'm not overly concerned about my luteal phase yet I will try for a few more months before seeing the gp. Flaxseed? Interesting have you tried it ?

    I'll try to find the exact study I read about, but here's one from the 90s. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8077314

    It's supposed to take 3 cycles to take effect, taking 2 tsp/day I think. I read some people only take it during their LP. I'll look around more and send your way!

    This shows a lot of different research. Kind of confusing. https://sites.google.com/site/miscar...riage/flaxseed

    OP I had a very short Luteal phase less than 10 days similarly I had a MMC and then several months of TTC and cycle tracking. I booked in to see a FS (GP really won't be much help, they will run some tests but I would book a FS as can take several months to get into, you can kept trying while you wait).

    The blood tests my GP ordered confirmed that I was either not ovulating or ovulating late and he told me to ask the FS for further investigating. Strangely enough that cycle I got a BFP!

    It's hard to know whether my LP would have been 'longer' on that very cycle because I never got AF. However the 6 cycles before had all been consistent. And the blood tests I had that cycle still don't make sense, the GP certainly didn't think it was possible that I was pregnant (my progesterone was about 6?!). The pregnancy was successful and I am currently nursing my 4 month old.

    The other thing I did that cycle was start fertility acupuncture. Again hard to know whether it was a coincidence but I am convinced it helped in some way! I had weekly acupuncture with a lady that specialised in fertility (Obstetricians recommended her) and she worked on lengthening my cycle. She also gave me Chinese herbs to take.

    If I ever had this problem again I would definitely go down the acupuncture path! And use temping to track my cycle rather than OPKs as I got mixed results with those.
