When it comes to fertility and getting pregnant, each phase of your menstrual cycle is extremely important to your fertility.

Now, one of the most important phase during this period is the luteal phase which actually is the make or break time when you are working on your way to conceive.

What is the luteal phase?

The luteal phase is a period between the ovualation and the start of a woman’s period as during this time fertilization and implantation occurs.

Now the main issue here is that when any disruption happens during this phase can lead to fertility issues.

According to expert and research, Most agree that the uterus phase less than 12 days does not give the uterus sufficient time to establish a nourishing lining for a growing foetus and therefore will cause miscarriage if fertilization has occurred.

What are the symptoms of luteal phase defect.

Low progesterone
– A short Menstrual cycle
– Disrupted basal body temperature after ovulation
– Low back pain, bleeding and loose stool

One of the ways through which you can use to determine the length of your luteal phase is when you know how your body works as regards fertility and also the level of your progesterone to know if its low most of which you can easily get to know by simply visiting your gynecologist.

This luteal phase has been shown to affect 3-4% of women who have what is known as unexplained infertility which is a situation where there is no explanation as to why you cant get pregnant because you simply passed the medical test that says such. Up to 63% of women who has repeated miscarriage also suffer from this and also 6-10% of women who are fertile.

The most common factor that causes the luteal phase defect (LPD) is LOW PROGESTERONE LEVEL.

This is one of the important hormones that is needed for preserving the uterine lining and pregnancy during the first trimester.

When your progesteron level is not sufficient enough, luteal phase defect (LPD) may occur leading to infertility.

Common Culprit to Low progesterone.

– Low Follicle Production

During the first half of the menstrual cycle, if the pituitary gland does not make enough FSH hormones, then the follicle production would be weakened. This is
the time between your last period and ovulation. What this causes is you having an early period which also causes a thin uterine lining which of course prevents fertilization
and implantation from taking place.

– Premature Drop in Progesterone.

Should your progesterone level go low too soon which is usually few days of ovulation,
this simply allows your body to instinctively think that its time to flush out the uterus and have to start all over again.
When you have short cycles which is usually less than 24 days, its actually a sign of this type of luteal phase defect (LPD)

– Low lutenizing Hormone
Prior to when ovulation occurs which is usually within 24 hours, there is a spike in the lutenizing hormones which causes ovulation to occur.
When there is a lower than normal LH, it can simply prevent ovualation from occuring and also leads to low progesterone level as well.

– Uterine Lining Failure.

The job of the uterus is to create a nourishing environment for the fertilized egg to grow into a foetus.
When the uterine lining is not actually think enough or simply put strong enough. It can actually lead to miscarriages in women.
And this is usually caused by low hormones or hormonal imbalance.
Now Estrogen is the actuallt the hormone that is responsibkle for the thickening of the uterine lining which helps with the implantation and also ripens the progesterone for implanatation.

– Abnormal Low Cholesterol Level.

When there is an abnormal low cholesterol level, it also results into low level of progesterone. Now what you need to know is this.
All hormones including the progesterone, must have choleserol as it is needed to be manufactured by the body, Been underweight too can also lead
to low cholesterol production and body fat which indirectly affect the hormones level across board.
