I really am frustrated. We are TTC #4. 4 pregnancies, 3 babies, 1 early m/c last month that really crushed me, but the doc ok'd us to try again right away. I'm wondering if anyone else has had luteal phases shorten on them as they get older? I'm only 28 so I am a little confused.

Oh, and FWIW, I am already taking Vitamin B6, Prenatals, and a B complex as I've heard that can help lengthen the luteal phase. It's been shorter since my last baby. I've had a lot of cycles where I bleed for 10 days, and then no bleeding for 10 days, then back to bleeding for 10 days...
My luteal phase shortened for a few months after ds3. I would ovulate and then start AF about 2-3 days later. I would literally have two periods a month. The only thing that straightened me out was progesterone and later on I added clomid.
