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

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
