Re: Can someone please explain "Luteal Phase" to me..

The luteal phase was important for us with TTC this time, because mine was less than 10 days. From what I've read, it isn't a worry with how long the phase is as long as its more than 10 days.
Since mine was too short, it wasn't giving a fertilized egg long enough to implant before my body basically called the whole cycle a loss, and AF started. I took B6 supplements to lengthen mine and got pregnant right away. I know I didn't implant until 11 DPO with this pregnancy and I know the pregnancy wouldn't have happened if I hadn't been charting and on the B6 to fix my little problem.
I 2nd the advice to pick up Taking Charge of your Fertility, its a great book with lots of info in it.
