Quoting Amelia Margaret:" What makes you think this is a luteal phase defect? The cycle looks anovulatory to me."
well first off i havent heard of anovulartory so it could be either one.
it may be to early to tell but if its either one of these i want to know asap to take care of it!
this is why i think its a luteal phase defect. but i also ready that this has to happen twice before getting checked for it.
The major symptom of LPD is a short luteal phase.
This will be manifested as a short ovulation cycle
or cycles which are irregular.
A luteal phase is the time in a woman’s cycle between ovulation and menstruation. In a pregnant woman, during the luteal phase the fertilized egg will travel from the fallopian tube and into the uterus for implantation. The luteal phase is normally 14 days long and on an average it can be anywhere from 10 to 17 days long. If your luteal phase lasts anything under 10 days it is considered a luteal phase defect. But some doctors believe that if the luteal phase falls under 12 days, then it is a problem. If you conceive and you have a luteal phase defect, you will have an early miscarriage.
A luteal phase defect cannot sustain a pregnancy because the uterine lining in these women begins to break down, bringing on the menstrual bleeding and causing an early miscarriage. There could be more than one reason for the luteal phase defect which can be found out after medical analysis. Going by statistics, the number one reason for a luteal phase defect is low progesterone levels. Your doctor can do a progesterone test on you 7 days past ovulation to determine exactly how deficient you are. Once you know that there are several ways of correcting this defect.
