Confused about my cycles- can I get pregnant with these relatively short cycles?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My cycles have been averaging around 25 days, but there have been some longer and some shorter cycles. Are these too short to get pregnant?

 

January 12- 30 days
February 11- 26 days
March 9- 26 days
April 4 - 25 days
April 29 - 24 days
May 23 - 26 days
June 18 - 26 days
July 14 - 26 days
August 7 - 24 days
August 29 - 22 days
September 21 - 23 days
October 18 - 27 days
November 11 - 24 days

It all depends on when you are ovulating. 

 

What matter is your luteal phase - the period of time after you ovulate but before the start of your period.  A "normal" phase is 14 days long, and anything less than 10 can give you problems (although some docs say 12 is a problem, and others aren't concerned unless it is 7 or 8). 

 

So if you are ovulating early in your cycle, short cycles are ok.  But if you are ovulating later it could be an issue.

 

I have a 26 day cycle and usually O on day 17... so a 9 day LP.  We have been having trouble conceiving because of it.

 

Have you tried charting to track when you are ovulating?
