16 Day Cycle? Huh?!
Well, I'm back in this forum again, getting a jump start on baby #2. I thought after everything I'd been through the first time around, I'd be a pro, but my first month on clomid threw me for a loop.
Back towards the middle of November, I got a progesterone shot to kick start my periods. My period began on 11/23 and I started clomid right away. (I conceived baby #1 while taking the pills days 1-5 of my cycle) My clearblue easy fertility monitor peaked on days 10 and 11, and today on what should've been cycle day 17, I got my period.
So, I know this is way too short of a cycle, but I'm wondering if I should keep up with the clomid and give it a go right away (I'd start on day 3 as the doc instructed me to this time around) or try and go through this cycle without meds to see if I can get the length back to something more appropriate.
Anyone experience something like this? I'll probably call the doc tomorrow, but I'd like to hear others thoughts.

Back when I was first ttc I had a 19 day cycle. All my cramping I was having I thought for sure it was a sign of pregnancy. I was very upset to have such a short cycle. I would just take the next round of clomid cd3-7 and see what happens this time. If you have another really short cycle like that I would see your dr. I'm not really sure why that would happen. For me, I'm pretty sure I had an annovulatory cycle but if you peaked.... Are you also charting your bbt? Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Maybe you have a LP problem. Is this really AF or just spotting? Did you just start taking met? After I had just started met I had a REALLY short cycle. I would call the DR but I would also just start the clomid.
