This is 1st real month of ttc (we didn't BD a lot for cycle #1) and I think I have a short luteal phase. How long should we ttc before I see my doc about this?
I've been on the pill for 12 years. Because of really bad periods (migraines, heavy/long flow, severe cramps), I was on the continuous pill (no cycle breaks, no periods) for the last 3 years.
Stopped the pill: 11/12/06
Started BBT charting immediately
Cylce #1: 27 days, ovulation on cd17
Cycle #2: 26 days, ovulation on cd19
I know it can take quite some time for my cycles to get back to normal. Prior to taking the pill (12 years ago), my cycles were pretty regular at about 36 days.
Hubby and I BD'd quite a bit this cycle. I started spotting this afternoon, but was hoping that it was implantation bleeding (there seemed to be some wet cm and some brown/pink). But, this evening, it is a much darker red.
So, how long should I wait to see the doc re: possible too short luteal phases? I probably should wait at least a few more cycles, huh?
Anyway, thanks for all your knowledge - I've been lurking for a bit and am relieved to have a nice place to come to to get info.
