Customer Question

What can I do to fix my luteal phase defect? I have been trying to conceive for 2 years. I have been too scared to try meds because autism is in my family. Not to say that is a cause, maybe luteal phase defect is..??

Why do you think that you have a luteal phase defect? Thank you.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
After charting my periods for too long, the time between ovulation and period is 9-11 days. I was told that isn't long enough to sustain a pregnancy. Is that correct?
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 8 months ago.

And how are you able to determine the time of ovulation?

Have you seen a doctor for evaluation of infertility? Thank you.
