Lengthen Luteal Phase
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

50mg Clomid (clomiphene) has corrected luteal phase defect. Once this medication is discontinued will the luteal phase defect return?
Defect or no defect: Many don't believe that luteal phase defect actually exists. Usually people with a diagnosed luteal phase defect actually have problem with growing a healthy egg. Remember the egg and its associated cells determine the length of the luteal phase. ...Read more

11+ days: The luteal phase starts after ovulation and is 14 days by the textbook. We usually think that the minimum length is about 11 days. To determine the length, you need to accurately know the day of ovulation, as many times a day can make the difference between normal & abnormal. You need an accurate diagnosis to prevent unnecessary and thus ineffective treatment. Best wishes. ...Read more
No!: People 'speculate' about this all the time, but it is certainly not true - at least there is no evidence to back the claim. ...Read more
If 50mg of Clomid (clomiphene) corrected luteal phase defect, what could have caused the luteal phase defect in the first place?
LPD: No one completely understands lpd, and its role is very much less important than believed 20 years ago. A theory is inadequate luteal phase comes from abnormal or 'weak' ovulation: thus, if Clomid (clomiphene) improves ovulation it 'might' fix lpd too. The importance of lpd is usually in pregnancy loss, and Progesterone supplementation not Clomid (clomiphene) is the main treatment. ...Read more
Can B6 or vitamin C help to lengthen the luteal phase? Currently my cycle is 23 days and the luteal phase is 10 days.
No prove that I know: 23 day cycle is nor abnormal if you ovulate and 10 day luteal phase is not short. Short luteal phase is 8 days or less. Obtain day Progesterone level with your primary care or obgyn on 2.5 to 3 weeks after the begining of the cycle. If Progesterone is > 8ng/dl, no treatment for what you mentioned is required. ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Old school: This is probably a debatable idea, which i don't put alot of stock in. The logic goes that if lpd is related to inadequate corpus luteum function, Clomid (clomiphene) can improve lpd by improving ovulation (thus a better cl.) the correctness is debatable, but the argument kinda makes sense. ...Read more
DSPS: Simply put, dsps is when a person can fall asleep and stay asleep normally (ie, insomnia is not an issue) but they habitually fall asleep late at night, such as 2-3 am. They also sleep a normal number of hours. Advanced sleep phase disorder is the exact same thing but the person sleeps early such as 7-8 pm.
