Your chart looks normal to me...there's nothing jumping out at me as being problematic or something that you'd need to discuss with your doctor.

Hello,


I think you had a pretty good chart going last cycle.

Sadly, many doctors don't see the benefit of charting. And. . . many doctors brush of concerns of women unless they've been TTC for 6 months to a year with no pregnancy. If you're charting, you can have a much better of idea about why you aren't getting pregnant. A short LP is just one of many things that could be the reason.

Now, back to your situation. Spotting at 11 dpo and having a 12 day LP is not really that bad. I consistently had a 12 day LP and started spotting prior to that. In fact, when I got pregnant with Jubilee, I started spotting about 10 dpo and then stopped a couple days later. That's when I did an HPT and found out I was pregnant.

It's good that you asked for the thyroid levels to be checked. I'd imagine that your m/w could also order bloodwork at 7 dpo to check hormone levels then. It is a simple bloodtest that can help set your mind at ease about progesterone levels.
