Hey Ladies. Ok so, ive been charting for the past two months. March to April cycle was 32days. April to May cycle 28days. However for both months my luteal phase only seem to be 9days. So i have 3 questions..............
1) Does 9day luteal phase classify me as having a defect?
2)Do you count the days from ovulation to the day you starting spotting or full flow?
3) Any suggestions on how i can naturally lengthen my luteal phase?
BTW- I've been on Vitex since mid March.
Any feedback, input, sugesstions would be greatly appreciated.
i realize it has been a full year since this post but thought perhaps people searching this topic would like to hear an answer. or at least my experience and results.
does a 9 day lp classify as a defect. i consider it an issue, yes. i have heard 9 days or less is a defect but it seems to be on the borderline.
you count days from ovulation to true blood show, not to spotting but a full wipe.
i had nine day luteal phases and decided to try b6. so i researched b6 and decided to take a b50 supplement. b6 is best absorbed in the presence of b12 so its better if you take it as a complex instead of just b6. it also doesn't happen over night. with me the first month i gained one day and then the next month i had a normal 28 day cycle with 14 day luteal phase, it was amazing! this is my third month and i am very hopeful. after doing some more research i discovered that you shouldn't just stop taking it. but to ween yourself off of it once you are pregnant or don't want to use it anymore. so do take care if you try the b vitamins. i take a b50 in the morning with breakfast and then i take a prenatal before bed. many people say their prenatal vitamins cause their stomachs to be upset and i avoid that by taking it at night.
there are many more things you can try. like raspberry leaf tea . there are more options and you can look them up on-line if you are curious. but the b50 worked for me.
best of luck!
