@Sunchick19:  Not ttc, but I checked into this a few years ago.  I normally have shorter cycles and was worried about my own fertility.  From what I read it can be a good thing, shorter cycles = more chances.  There were exceptions though.  (I think the exceptions lied in woman who had very light periods), but again, I’m not ttc.

I haven’t had this issue, but good luck on TTC number 2.  🙂  So exciting!

Typically it depends on which phase of your cycle is the shortest.  If it’s the third (luteal) phase, this can cause difficulty in TTC/keeping a pregnancy.  Luteal phase should be about 11 days and I think anything less than 9 or 7 is cause for more concern.  I have a short luteal phase due to BCP use and I know that once Darling Husband and I start TTC I’ll have to take a few extra measures (progesterone creams usually) in order to increase our chances.  To clarify, typically BCPs and other hormonal birth control typically only cause a shortened luteal phase for a few months.  Unfortunately, it has had lasting effects on my cycle.

@Sunchick19:  Wow, your friends are on the ball!  Most of our friends with babies Addie’s age are just now working on #2.  🙂  

Things are going really well!  It’s a whole new ballgame with two; fun, challenging, exhausting, but definitely worth it!

I was basically going to write what Aggie10 wrote. It’s only a problem if the time between ovulation and AF is <10 days. A 10-11 day LP might be sort of iffy, but probably okay. Otherwise, it’s sort of good because you do get more chances.

My cycles were 23-24 days long and I got pregnant twice. I lost the first one, but I’m 10 weeks now and hoping this one will stick. My LP was 11-12 days.

Good luck!

I was having short cycles (22-24 days) with 12-13 day luteal phase. Based on my CD3 bloodwork I started Clomid this cycle. I would suggest (based on your age) that you at least discuss your short cycle with your doc if you aren’t PG in a few more months. Good luck!!!

My LP was only ten-ish days when we first started TTC (on the Pill for seven or so years) and over the course of twelve months it lengthened itself to a consistent 11-12 days.  We got our BFP after ten active cycles of TTC.

I would recommend charting or using OPK’s so you can check out what your cycles are doing!
