If I remember correctly I think that Compley, one of our mods, took clomid because of a luteal phase defect, and she conceived her daughter on it. So there's one success story for you :)

Good luck

Clomid lengthened my leutal phase from 8/9 days to 12/13 days and I got my BFP. unfortuantly it was shortlived as i had a heterectopic and lost both babies, but it did the job.

Fingers crossed it'll work its magic on you too

BFP: May 11 heterotopic @ 7 weeks. lost my miracle babies.

Yes, as Bubble says I took clomid for a short luteal phase, I had a luteal phase of about 9/10 days. I conceived my son and daughter on clomid, so really hope it has a positive outcome for you too.

Are you taking cyclogest too, thats what I've just been presecribed? I'm on it for next four months days 21- 28 to increase progesterone levels and my luteal phase length, if it doesn't work I'll ask about clomid - good luck coxyloxy!
