I am not really sure where to post this, but since I believe my problem may be related to BFing I thought I would start here. Okay, so I got my first PP cycle when my DS was about 3 months old. 30 days later I had my second. Then about 28 days later my third. My next two cycles were about 25 days apart. My last one was only 24 days. They keep getting closer and closer together despite the fact that I weaned my son in April. I went searching online and found that short cycles are related the leutal phase defect. I am kinda concerned now because even though we aren't TTC, we may in about a year and a half to two years from now. So I was wondering if my cycle issues could be related to the fact that I quit BFing and will straighten out on their own or do you think I should be concerned about the frequency of them? I have never had any issues with TTC and usually my cycles average from 28-35 days so this is really weird for me. Any input would be great Thanks in advance

Hello! That's very interesting that your cycles are getting shorter since stopping BF. I've always thought they would actually get longer, well that's how it went when I fell pregnant with DS. Other than a short LP, all I can think of is perhaps you are ovulating earlier. It might be worth charting your temperature to see when you are ovulating and finding out how long your LP is. I would probably also see a doctor and get a blood test to see what your hormones are doing. It may be a hormone imbalance? I hope everything works out for you, keep us posted

Charting really helps you learn a lot about what is going on with your body. Since you have just recently quit BFing I would just chart and watch it for a couple of months and see if they start to straighten back out.

HOWEVER if you notice that your periods have gotten painful or heavier I would go see the doc b/c that could be some issue's that are not related to BFing.

Good luck! And keep us posted on how it goes.

Heya! I found the same thing, only my daughter is still nursing although less. My cycles were 30-31 days long then got shorter til about 24 at the shortest end. I've been charting for over a year and DO have a short luteal phase. You should chart to find out yours too. As your not nurding anymore there are things the docs can give you to sort your LP out. I myself have been trying Agnus Castus (herb) and B6. The B6 did lenghen my cycle for two of them but my last was short again. I have progesterone cream to try this cycle so I'll be keeping you informed on how that goes!

Hi. Im Jolene. 31 years old. I suffered three years of a short luteal phase and didnt think I could get pregnant again without medical assistance but fell pregnant by accident and naturally. I am really happy and excited to be having a baby although knowing Im going it alone this time is a bit daunting and scary!
