One bad ovary?

Thu, 10-29-2009 - 8:03pm

I have been charting for about 6 months and have noticed that it is like I have two different cycles...they are the same every other month. For example, Cycle 1 is around 27/28 days long with ovulation on CD15. Cycle 2 is only about 23 days long (leaving me with a luteal phase only 7-8 DPO!).

Also, my temperature levels are different. On the short cycle, my post-ovulation BBT stays just above coverline (but I definitely ovulate), whereas the long cycle shows a significant rise.

My husband and I are going to TTC in 2010 and I want to make sure that I have everything taken care of before we start trying. What can this mean? Do I have one bad ovary?

If this is the case, do we need to plan on just being able to conceive every other month?

Here's the past 2. Since I am not a vip member, I cannot post more than 2 at a time. I have attached 2 more in pdf.

I haven't been able to find any information about this online. I just don't know what to make of it.

Thanks. I am sure you're probably right. I've assumed I've had an LPD since the beginning. I've been taking 200Mg of B-6 for, oh probably 4-5 months, plus some "Pro-Creation" Multi-vitamins (but recently I can't stomach them due to the fish oil- Eck).

I guess I am going to have to get my progesterone tested...shouldn't be too high considering I sometimes barely make it to the 7dpo mark!

ps... On my charts, I also chart on my phone, so sometimes dates are left off, but they usually coincide. Any open circle means I slept about an hour late. But even at that, the spikes are big.

Hmmm, yep, I'd say it's time to get that progesterone test then, if you're taking B6 and not seeing an effect.
