I have a 28 day cycle. I took a OPK test and it came out positive on cycle day 16. So it appears my luteal phase is about 10 or 11 days. Could this be a problem when I am trying to conceive or is that a long enough luteal phase to sustain a pregnancy?

LPD: 20 years ago luteal phase defect (lpd) was part of every fertility evaluation; it is no longer believed important except maybe in recurring pregnancy loss. If you don't have a rpl history, ignore lpd for now. Your arithemtic is correct, 28-16= 12, but OPK is not precise enough for diagnosis. Only endometrial biopsy should be considered for lpd, and only when clinically indicated. Good luck! ...Read more

My cycles are between 23-28 days. I ovulate in between 13-15th day. Which gives me a short luteal phase. TTC for 10 months now! Should I worry?

12 months: I'm not a Gynecologist, but ur cycle variation is not too abnormal IMHO. (I saw ur other post regarding the "luteal phase" as well). However, if/when u have been TTC for >12 months w/o success, then it's time 2 c a fertility specialist for diagnosis. They have reproductive medicine/treatments to regulate ur cycle & hopefully can tell if u or ur partner have medical issues that keep u from conceivn ...Read more

How many mg of vit B6 to take for luteal phase defect? 29 day cycle, ovulation day 20, luteal phase of 10 days. Thanks

Non-proven therapy: Vitamin therapy for luteal phase defect is unproven; I know of no convincing evidence that it has nay impact on lpd at all. Therefore, there's no recommendation for 'how much' to take. You might be aware that experts do not even agree on the impact of lpd and whether it needs to be treated at all. ...Read more

Long follicullar phase but normal 14 day luteal phase. Is this ok? What causes long follicular phase what can I do? Always ovulate around cd 25

Keep body weigh down: Although premature death of the dominant follicle followed by replacement or follicular suppression are possible causes, the most common reason for long follicular phases in women is prolongation of the time from recruitment to emergence of the dominant follicle. This is most commonly seen in PCOS. You are ovulating and menstruating, so that is good. There is not much for you to do. ...Read more

Progesterone was 48.5 luteal phase. Is that normal? What does this show? 22nd day of cycle.

It's good (normal): A progesterone level of anything over about 1.5 - means that ovulation has occurred. There really aren't "good" and "bad" progesterone levels, so you don't need to make it higher. Good wishes. ...Read more
