Your cycles sound exactly like mine, except mine are 28 days on the dot with a 14 day luteal phase.. but my periods are the same, 3 days long: heavy/medium, medium/light, light/spotting and done.

We just started cycle 8 TTC, but have only had perfect timing maybe 4-5 of those cycles.

I don’t know that my period length is what’s preventing me from conceiving, but I really don’t think that’s what is wrong with me.

My periods are like this and I haven’t had trouble conceiving. Just to add a piece of anecdata.

I hardly have a period at all- maybe 48 hrs- rarely enough to use a tampon. I had no trouble conceiving my daughters- first try for each of them. So hopefully you are the same and having a short period isnt a barrier.

I had 3 day periods and had no problems getting pregnant with DS (he was an oops). This time around I worried about it as we actually wanted to get pregnant. But when I had my IF work-up and they did a lining check on CD3, mine was perfect. So a short period was not indicative of a lining problem for me.


Has your husband been checked? If your doc won’t order anything for you, maybe his doc could order a SA for him?
