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

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

14 days: A luteal phase needs to last for 14 days for the cycle to be a fertile cycle. After a miscarriage it can take a few cycles for the luteal phase to get back to the fertile range. ...Read more

What are other reason for recurrent miscarriages besides progesterone, clotting, luteal phase, and chromosome abnormality?

What are other reason for recurrent miscarriages besides progesterone, clotting, luteal phase, and chromosome abnormality?

Uterine cavity: The other really big one you didn't list is uterine cavity abnormalities such as fibroids or congenital abnormalities (septum, etc...). Sadly many many cases of recurrent loss never get a satisfactory diagnosis. ...Read more

I have 21-24 day cycles with a 13 day luteal phase. I regularly ovulate as early as day 9, never later than day 12. I've been trying to get pregnant since Feb 2014 and had a missed miscarriage in Dec 2014. Is ovulating so early a problem? Also, my periods

Should not matter: The key is ovulation. When it occurs does not matter. I am sorry to hear that you had a miscarriage. On the positive side this does indicate that you can get pregnant. Usually we recommend trying for 12 months. Since you miscarried about 3 months ago you may want to keep trying before seeking fertility assistance. ...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

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

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

In my luteal phase fsh- 3 and lsh- 5 is that in normal range, as my cycles are getting shorter, ?

Does a short follicular phase affect fertility? I ovulate on day 9 or 10 of my cycle . My luteal phase is always 16 days.

Probably not: You may want to follow up with a pre-ovulation ultrasound, to see if the follicle is appropriate in size. And also to check a. Luteal phase progesterone to see if it's greater than 10 ng/ ml. ...Read more

Is pink-tinged egg white mucus at the same time as a period a sign that the luteal phase is extremely short?

Is pink-tinged egg white mucus at the same time as a period a sign that the luteal phase is extremely short?

No: No direct connection. Luteal phase is assessed by counting days from a certain ovulation (opk may not be good enough) until the next period starts; luteal-phase-defect is assessed by endometrial biopsy. ...Read more
