Can Homeopathy Treat Short Luteal Phase?

by Monica
(London, On)

Hi have short luteal phase. I have been charting my cycle for 4 months now and I ovulate around day 20-21 and my luteal phase is 9 days long. I have had a miscarriage at 13 weeks last year and I am now starting to believe that this could have been the cause. Is it possible to cure short luteal phase with homeopathy or other alternative therapy?

Thank you so much for considering my question.

Homeopathic Medicine Can prevent Miscarriage
by: Maria Gioia Atzori

Normally the luteal phase is 14 days long. If your luteal phase is less than 10 days long, it is too short to allow implantation to take place. The result of this is early miscarriage. Usually, women with short luteal phase have a late period that is very heavy and not even realize that they miscarried unless they tested with a early pregnancy test.

In your case, you had a miscarriage at the end of the first trimester. This could be related to poor progesterone production or problems with the embryo. If the embryo is carrying abnormal genes or chromosomes, it will be spontaneously aborted as a result. The only way to know is to do genetic testing.

Low progesterone is most commonly the cause. If you suspect a short luteal phase talk to your doctor and ask for hormonal testing on day 7 past ovulation to find out the proper diagnosis.

There are a few things that you can do naturally to correct short luteal phase. Homeopathic medicine can definitely help because it can address both low progesterone levels re-establishing hormonal balance.

The best time to ovulate is really 14-15 days before your menstruation. In your case, late ovulation is the cause, leading to short luteal phase. When your hormonal system cannot effectively support ovulation, you need to consider the following strategies.

1. Taking Vitex.
2. Using natural progesterone cream.
3. Taking homeopathic remedies.
4. Taking Maca.

Vitex is a slow acting herb but very effective in correcting low progesterone production. Most women will have also high FSH. Vitex should be taken for 4-6 months in order to be most effective.

Many practitioners recommend natural progesterone cream in place of Vitex in women who have a history of miscarriage due to short luteal phase or in those who are going through IVF treatments. This is natural form of hormonal replacement. It is very effective and can be taken during the first trimester to prevent miscarriage.

Homeopathic remedies are very effective in treating menstrual cycle abnormalities. They should be selected based on your unique characteristics. Please learn more about The Homeopathic Fertility Program.

Maca is a fertility super-food. It is very good in increasing progesterone production, balancing hormones and re-establish natural ovulation. It also is great because it has no hormonal properties.
