What is the best treatment for late ovulation and a short luteal phase?

The corpus luteum which is the remainder of the follicle after ovulation will only make Progesterone for 2 weeks unless there is pregnancy hormone, hcg, to "rescue" it.

I am having late ovulation and I want to get pregnant what can I do?

I am having late ovulation and I want to get pregnant what can I do?

Late sex: Many women have longer cycles which means they ovulate later. This does not interfere with fertility. It simply means that the most fertile time is later. If the interval from ovulation to the start of your period is short however that can mean a luteal phase defect which can cause fertility problems. This is very treatable. See your doctor to look into this. ...Read more

Lmp 4/27;EDD 2/17. By LMP the dd would be 2/1/15.after 4 u/s the edd is between 2/8-2/17. Is this b/c of late ovulation since its still not 2/1?

Lmp 4/27;EDD 2/17. By LMP the dd would be 2/1/15.after 4 u/s the edd is between 2/8-2/17. Is this b/c of late ovulation since its still not 2/1?

Could be few reasons: It's definitely not an exact science when we're predicting EDD. It could be an ovulation that did not happen until after the standard day 14 often used for estimation. With ultrasound it's more to do with the size of the fetus-it may be measuring smaller than one would expect for an EDD of 2/1 according to how you measured at 23 weeks. They are only a week off which is not unusual. ...Read more

Used to have 37 day cycles with late ovulation. Last 2 cycles were 33 cycles. Been taking zinc tablets past 2months, is there a connection?

Shorter cycles?: Zinc is not known to influence the menstrual cycle. It is common after some time with longer cycles for a higher level of hormone to be released from the brain, and more regular cycles at a shorter time of onset can be established. Ovulation requires in some women a higher level of hormone to mature an egg prior to release. ...Read more

It should. ..: The 2nd half of the cycle (luteal phase) starts with ovulation and ends with a period, or goes on into pregnancy. Most luteal phases should be 13-14 days.

Lmp 4/27. Edd 2/17 by u/s. If dr says he won't change my edd is that sign of late ovulation since by the preg wheel it should be around 2/1?

Due date: Due dates based on ultrasound are best during the first trimester. In later trimesters they are not as good. This is due to the limitations in the accuracy of the measurements. In the 1st trimester, in fact before 10 weeks the dates are +/- less than 7 days in subsequent trimesters they are 14-21 days. That is why your doctor is probably not changing your dates. ...Read more
