thosethreewords :  an 11 day LP is really not concerning but it’s a good thing you’re taking the steps to try and lengthen it before TTC. I’ve heard good things about B complex to lengthen LP but I also heard it can delay O so watch out for that in the beginning.

GL and I highly recommend to continue charting as it’ll clue you in to your cycle more than anything.

Also,  read taking charge of your Fertility if you haven’t already, it’s a great way to begin to understand how our cycles work.

Just chiming in to say mine was 10 days and I got pregnant my second real cycle temping with my first, and my first real cycle with good timing (not temping, just estimating) with my second. You may be totally fine! Good luck!

Came here to follow for the same concern, but now after looking at my Natural Cycles app I’m confused. When you count luteal phase, are you counting between O day and AF, or are you including O & AF days in the number? I’ve been counting between (not including O & AF days) and thought I’ve been a consistent 10-day luteal phase, but my tracker app says my average is 12 so maybe I’m counting wrong?

browneyedgirl24 :  I don’t count O or CD1.
