Is it safe to take 60 mg vitamin B6 for luteal phase defect while you are breastfeeding?

Is it safe to take 60 mg vitamin B6 for luteal phase defect while you are breastfeeding?

Yes: Your question is a little confusing. That dose of vit b6 is safe for breastfeeding and for you, but are you having regular monthly periods despite breastfeeding? Because many women will suppress normal, predictable ovulation while breastfeeding (not all), but if your menses are irregular during breastfeeding it likely means unpredictable ovulation (if ovulating at all). ...Read more

Luteal Phase (Definition)

The luteal phase (or secretory phase) is the latter phase of the menstrual cycle (in humans and a few other animals) or the estrous cycle (in other placental mammals). It begins with the formation of the corpus luteum and ends in either pregnancy or luteolysis. The main hormone associated with this stage is progesterone, which is significantly higher ...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

Can a short luteal phase cause a second trimester loss?

No: A short luteal phase only impacts early implantation and early pregnancy. The placenta takes over the Progesterone production around seven to eight weeks of gestation. So a second trimester loss is not related to a short luteal phase. ...Read more

Could a short luteal phase cause a miscarriage at 11 weeks ?

Could a short luteal phase cause a miscarriage at 11 weeks ?

Luteal phase defect: Most luteal phase defects cause a loss earlier like 6-9 weeks. 11 week loses are usually related to things like subchorionic hemorrhage. Of course a luteal phase defect could cause a loss, which isn't picked up until 11 weeks. It may be of value to check a Progesterone level in the first trimester with subsequent pregnancies. ...Read more

Long cycles: Probably your system is still adjusting after the bcp's. Give it some additional time to adjust unless your anxious to conceive. ...Read more

I'm having watery CM 11dpo for a few days in a row. AF is due in 4 days. Does this mean I ovulate later than normal and have a short luteal phase?

Can not conclude: One can not draw conclusions regarding ovulation or you luteal phase based on watery mucous during one cycle. You could try a home ovulation kit to confirm ovulation. If your discharge continues then schedule a visit for testing for bacterial vaginosis and other infections. ...Read more

50mg Clomid (clomiphene) has lengthened luteal phase from 9-11 days to 12-13 days. As Clomid (clomiphene) had lengthened lp, what could have caused prev LP to be short?

50mg Clomid (clomiphene) has lengthened luteal phase from 9-11 days to 12-13 days. As Clomid (clomiphene) had lengthened lp, what could have caused prev LP to be short?

Luteal phase defect: The whole idea of a lpd is controversial. A defect in corpus luteum function (ie, luteal phase defect) is hypothesized as a potential cause of impaired Progesterone production. If there is impaired Progesterone production, then the 'luteal phase' is shortened. Ob/gyn's do not agree whether this is associated with fertility issues, in fact. ...Read more
