I have a 10 Luteal phase. Is this normal or abnormal? Can I still get pregnant?

Abnormal: It is a little short for a luteal phase. It may vary a little month to month. It is possible but not as easy to get pregnant. Usually it is a sign of something abnormal with the functioning of the ovaries. It is worth seeing a specialist for an evaluation to make sure everything is ok. With only 10 days, the uterus does not have as much time to prepare for a pregnancy ...Read more

My cycle is about 26 days, my luteal phase is about 15 days. On cd 17 I always get brown cm until AF. I went off qlaira in july '14, is this normal?

My cycle is about 26 days, my luteal phase is about 15 days. On cd 17 I always get brown cm until AF. I went off qlaira in july '14, is this normal?

Partial answer: Unless you got pregnant because you stopped the qlaira 9 months ago, there's NO relationship between your previous use of Qlaira and your current menstrual cycles. However, I'm not certain what "cm" and "AF" mean to you and not sure what your referring to when you ask "Is this normal? " If you want an answer to your question, you need to be more specific and avoid abbreviations. ...Read more

Can u please explain the luteal phase and the tell me if u can get pregnant at this phase?

Can u please explain the luteal phase and the tell me if u can get pregnant at this phase?

Luteal phase: The luteal phase is the last half of your cycle. During that time, a cyst called the corpus luteum produces hormones that prepare your uterus for pregnancy. You ovulate just prior to this and ovulation is the only time you can get pregnant. It may be difficult to determine the exact timing of ovulation and the luteal phase especially when the cycles are irregular. ...Read more

Is it normal to have small brown spotting on and off during the luteal phase? (Not enough for pantyliner) Or should I be concerned?

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test.

I know progesterone dominates the luteal phase, but is it possible to also have estrogen surges during this time? Particul. Round 2/3 days past O?

I know progesterone dominates the luteal phase, but is it possible to also have estrogen surges during this time? Particul. Round 2/3 days past O?

Yes: Yes, it is not uncommon to have a "secondary estrogen surge" a few days after ovulation. The estrogen surge is not as significant as the Progesterone surge, but it is still responsible for creating fertile cervical mucous and lowering the basal body temperature. Once those two hormones drop off in levels, your lining sheds and you have your period-unless you become pregnant during the luteal phase ...Read more

What is the normal range of the pg/e2 ratio during the luteal phase (ideally 20th or 21st day of the cycle)? Thank you.

What is the normal range of the pg/e2 ratio during the luteal phase (ideally 20th or 21st day of the cycle)? Thank you.

Hard number to find: But a website called Rocky Mountain Analytical Lab had this to say: 95% of regularly cycling women not on hormones have a Pg to E2 ratio of between 23 and 57 (sampled one week prior to onset of menses). Unfortunately, because of the variability in absorption from person to person, the Pg to E2 ratio is not useful when women are on topical progesterone and/or estrogen. ...Read more

Is it possible to have estrogen surges during the luteal phase? Particularly about 3 days after ovulation?

Yes: There is commonly a "secondary" estrogen surge during the luteal phase produced by the corpus luteum, although Progesterone is the larger surge during this time. This secondary estrogen phase is responsible for the one to two days of "fertile" cervical secretions and lower basal body temperatures and this tends to occur several days after ovulation. ...Read more

I had my period and my cycle was 29 days so when do I ovulate and do I count luteal phase to get correct ovulating?

I had my period and my cycle was 29 days so when do I ovulate and do I count luteal phase to get correct ovulating?

14 days before start: About 14 days before the expected start of the upcoming period, one is likely to ovulate. Of course, it can vary from woman to woman, as people are not identical. That means a 28 day cycle = ovulation on or about day 14, and a 30 day cycle = ovulation on or about day 16 of the cycle (14 days before the first day of the next period). ...Read more

Medical foods: Yes, we do have experience using biologically active B vitamins, and even Vitamin D supplements. Since these items require prescriptions, and are not available in your "vitamin store", you need to discuss with your physician. Also, may help to explore your emotional state at time of hormonal shifts, as this can contribute to cognitive change. ...Read more

So, there is a lot of different information about luteal phase and what is and isn't conducive for normal pregnancy. Can you get pregnant with 10-11 lp?

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
