Is it normal to have a short luteral phase after taking clomid?

My luteral phase is short after taking clomid.

Is your leuteal phase shorter for you or shorter than the norm? I took clomid as well and mine was shorter (but closer to normal because I wasn't ovulating before.

No the point of clomid is to stretch it out to make it easier to get pregnant and usually works the first cycle. If it is not working I would talk to your doctor.

Clomid is used in the treatment of short luteral stages within the menstrual cycle. By taking Clomid, the luteral phase is lengthened and this is why it is an excellent fertility drug to take and will help the user or patient to fall pregnant faster. It often requires only one cycle to be successful.

No, in fact it should be just the opposite. Clomid is often prescribed to help lengthen the luteral phase to improve the chances of conception. If you are still having short phases you should return to your doctor.

Luteal phase is the time between ovulation and menstruation. This phase is normally 14 days long. Anything under 10 days it is considered a luteal phase defect
