I think your LP sounds a little on the short side, but I’ve heard of people getting pregnant with a 10-11 day LP too.  Even completely normal healthy people can take 6-12 months of TTC to get pregnant.  Not much advice now except to keep trying.  If you’re worried about LP, you can request a 7dpo blood test for progesterone levels, as well as CD3 and 10 blood work jsut to check other relavant hormones.

yellow7404:  have you recently stopped taking BCP? If this is your first cycle trying, don’t worry. A normal healthy couple only has a 20% chance of conceiving each cycle.

This is totalllly normal.  Most couples do NOT get pregnant on their first month TTC.  Just keep up with the BDing, and try not to stress (I know, easier said then done).  But I’m in a similar situation, healthy, BDing everyday or every other day during my FW, and it took me 5 months to get my first BFP!

I got pregnant with a 10-day LP.  However I had worked to get it to 10 days. I started with at 7-day LP and took 100 mg of B6 and a B-Complex vitamin every day and within a couple of months it went to 10 days.  Then I was pregnant.

10-11 day LP is definitely possible but taking the vitamins is worth it if you want to increase it more.  Good luck!

yellow7404:  From what I’ve been reading, BDing every other day can be better for conceiving for some couples, so the sperm count has a chance to get back up.

I took Vitex to increase my LP and it worked for me. But not everyone gets pregnant the first month – it took us 8 cycles. And BDing every day doesn’t always work – the month I got pregnant we only BD once!

yellow7404:  You only have a 20-25% chance even if you have sex at the perfect time- there is nothing for you to worry about! It took us four months and we did a mix of EOD and ED, depending on our energy and how busy we were. Good luck to you, just be patient and keep doin’ it!
