Short Luteal Phase

Anyone else with a short luteal phase? What did you do to help it? My luteal phase is normally 9-11 days and it's not giving the embryo enough time to sufficiently implant into my uterus.
What have you done to help lengthen luteal phase?

I am just finding out that mine is really short too. I hadn't thought of this being a problem before...

I have the same problem since stopping BCP. I ordered some NatPro Cream which I just started using 2 days after May ovulation. I had been starting AF 7 dpo (giving just a 21 day cycle), but this month, using the NatPro I started 11 dpo. Hopefully June will be even better... maybe even get my BFP :) I have read of many women with LPD (luteal phase defect) having good results with natural progesterone cream. You are supposed to use 1/2 tsp. twice per day from 2 dpo until AF. If pregnancy occurs, you keep using the cream through the 12th week then gradually taper off.

My LP isn't super short.. but it certainly isn't the full, average 14 days.. and I have recently had 2 chemicals.. so I was looking to try something to lengthen it. I hesitantly started taking Vitex and within 2 months, it had lengthened by about 3 days. Read up on it!

I believe my LP is 7 or 8 days, which is pretty short. I had a mc/chemical in march/april and wonder if this is the reason. I am going to start B6 to see if it helps...

I've heard of b6 helping! I think I'm going to try that and baby aspirin per my doctor.
