My cycles are getting shorter since ttc. Anyone?


Hi girls,
I am ttc for 4 months now. Since I ttc my cycles are getting shorter . My regular cycles are 29 days, but since ttc fist month 27, second 25, third 24 and it looks like its gonna be 23 this month. Af shows up after 16 days I see egg white thing ( sorry tmi) so I think luteal phase is same but first phase is getting shorter and shorter . I ovulate right after af.
Is anyone has the same thing?
thanx and baby dust to you all

I know what you mean! I had a d&c last year, after a m/c so my cycles are a bit all over the place anyway. December I was 31 days, then jan-feb 29, mar/april 26 and this month 20days!! Gonna go and see the doc next week, just to get some peace of mind. Sorry I can't offer an answer, just wanted you to know that you're not the only one!

xx

Hi'ya, I joined yesterday and am still wondering whether I an ok member because I'm a Fertility therapist. I was wondering if therapists are allowed )
If your follicular phase has become shorter since you started doing your temps it could be related to worry and anxiety. Were your cycles always 29days before starting temp charting? Jane

Irregular or shorter/longer follicular phase is usually due to the hypothalamus (hormone control centre of the brain) getting upset.

We'll all react differently because we're all wired up differently. I guess we all have different levels of "stress resistance". It's sometime hard to be objective about whether we are stressed or overdoing it because we get in comfort zones and habits. Alternate nostril breathing and drinking plenty of water (no colder than room temperature) are great friends to help healthy brain balance. I can explain why if anyone is interested.....?

I think the same thing happened to me as well. Usually my cycles are 27-28 days and I ovulate around Day 13-14. Around the time of ovulation or one day before it I get abdominal cramps. This time I had a very light period lasting 3 days with proper flow only on day 2. Around day 10 I got the cramps and I had an OPT. So whether I am pregnant or get AF in 14 days, my cycle length would be around 24 days which is very unusual for me. I think it must be the stress of TTC which has shortened the cycle.

Stay hydrated for good follicular phase health


Water is important because dehydration affects the brain. Dehydration affects body temperature and the hypothalamus is the temperature regulator. The hypothalamus governs follicular phase hormone activity and can be sensitive.

Dehydration causes stress and depression. Depression leads to stress reactions. Dehydration also affects body fluid balance and blood so making sure you are properly hydrated is a basic must. A good tip is to to drink a pint of water with some lemon juice added to balance the pH (good for your stomach) and tastes good too. My experience is that if you get that first pint in early then you actually want more during the delay whereas if you delay then it's easy to go the whole day and not drink much. Keep an eye on your wee and keep it light by drinking water (room temp or warmer if possible).

Drinking plenty of water is a win-win because even if dehydration is not an issue for your fertility or even if you are dehydrated but solving the dehydration does not change things for you... being properly hydrated means you don't age prematurely, your skin stays good and your body works better.
Dr F. Batmanghelidj has written a famous book called "Your bodies many cries for water" examining the way dehydration causes many illnesses in the body.
Being properly hydrated would benefit everyone.
