Hoping for some advice about how to lengthen a short luteal phase?
Mine isn't terribly short, 11 days, but I do think it's hindering us from getting our BFP.
I tried taking vitex this month, started on CD1. Ended up not O'ibg until CD22 (I usually O on CD17/18 )! I also found that it gave me incurable thrush (3 treatments did nothing and it only went away when I stopped taking it).
So...is there anything else that can help me??

Vitamin B6 apparently, but I think you need to take it with other B vitamins so taking a Mega B product is good. Just from the chemist etc and not super expensive.
I actually have a short LP too, 10 - 11 days and am currently 11w2d so there is hope for us short lp girls.

My kids were conceived on vitex (chaste berry). I have a very short LP (8 days sometimes) and it lengthened it to 12.

lauzie & congrats on your pregnancy
I've taken b vitamins in the past and they gave me acne! Lol, my body is a b!tch to me sometimes
But I'll put up with the acne if it means I get a BFP. I'll give it a go.

You can use progesterone oil or cream taken from ovulation to the end of your cycle.

Otherwise have you thought of doing acupuncture? I did it after my mc for 2 cycles and got my bfp on the 3rd cycle. It felt good and was helping to get my inside all good and ready for bub. It can be a bit expensive but I really enjoyed it and still go once a week now.

If you haven't already try acupuncture. Find an acupuncturist that specialises in fertility (you can often find recommendations through fertility clinics etc).
I had a very short LP and first cycle I had acupuncture i ovulated day 19 and fell pregnant that cycle. I'm now 27 weeks 😊. Previously my whole cycle was only about 22 days.
My acupuncturist also had me taking Chinese herbs.

Looks like I might have to get back into accupuncture once our house is sorted! Hopefully a bfp will happen in the meantime, but if not I'll definitely book in for an acupuncturist again.
