Mine was down to 8-9 days and I started a vitamin B complex.   That was a few yrs ago.  I definitely would talk to your doctor.

I agree about talking to your doctor. My doctor has me taking vitamin B6. I’m just starting that though this cycle so I’m not sure if it’ll help yet. Good luck!

I took prometrium (progesterone) this past cycle.  It certainly lengthened my LP…to 25 days and I had to stop it to get AF.

@Running Elley:  are you taking the prometrium again this month?

I think using bioidentical progesterone cream is supposed to help lengthen the luteal phase. You might google Dr. Lee who kind of started the progesterone therapy thing, or ask a naturopath about it.

High amounts of vitamin C, B6, and progesterone help a luteal phase defect.

@eryepye:  I agree with this.  Get bioidentical progesterone cream.

I have heard maca root can sometimes help with that, easy enough to get and worth trying.

@lotam240:Yeppppp. From 3 DPO to 12 DPO. If I don’t start AF by 16 DPO I take a pregnancy test. If it’s positive I start the prometrium again, if not….we wait lol.

I had a LPD. Mine was 9 days at the very longest over several cycles. I tried everything, Vitex, accupuncture, B6, etc. for several more cycles. Nothing helped. I finally met with a fertility specialist who recommended we just start TTC anyway, and that she would have a Prometirum prescription ready for my BFP. I got pregnant on the first try and used a progesterone cream from GNC until I could get the prescription filled. It worked! Baby is happy and healthy.
