It looks like this cycle is going to end up being only 23 or 24 days.  This wouldn't be a problem, except the one before that was 39 days, before that, 40 days, and before that, 46 days.  Before that I was LAM, nursing my toddler.  Not taking any meds.

 

If this is an ovulatory cycle, then my LP would only be ~8 days...not sufficient.  We're planning to TTC in a few months.

 

What in the world can I do to get my cycles to stabilize?  My family practitioner checked my thyroid, and it came back "fine."

 

Here are my charts: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/320676

 

Any thoughts?  ANYTHING is welcome!

It sometimes takes a little while for your cycles to get back to normal when you first start menstruating again.  The first couple charts look pretty crazy, but the one you're in right now looks possibly fertile.  A 10 day luteal phase is considered to be fertile.  Give your body some time, and it will come around.  In the meantime, work on eating a nutrient-rich diet and getting yourself to a healthy weight.
