  • I always had an LP of about 11-12 days, and managed a pregnancy, actually on my first cycle when the timing was right. (M/C at 11 weeks)
    I am unsure of the names of drugs in the USA (I'm in the UK
    ) so forgive me if I am saying what you've already said! Could you perhaps use progesterone? I know the progesterone supplements never worked for me, but you can get PIO injections, which apparently work very well - I plan to ask to use them for my FET cycle in April.

    Alternitively, Vitamin B6 got my LP up to 13 days.

    Best of luck,

  • With all due respect, I beg to differ with your doc. Embryos implant anytime after 5dpo and 11dpo is NUTS. I think you still stand a good chance of getting pg, but I think I would find a good RE (Reproductive Endocrinologist). I don't get the feeling that your doc is an RE. Your LP is indeed a little short, but I really don't think it's a big deal, assuming you have a good implantation around 5-7dpo. That *should* hold off AF. If not, rest assured that many women do indeed see AF as usual while they are pg and their babies hang on just fine through it.
