Hi pooja.kanth,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Having short periods should not be a reason to not be able to conceive as long as you are ovulating.  Here are some steps you might want to try, before seeing your OBGYN.

Charting your fertility pattern

Basal body temperature method – Basal body temperature is your temperature at rest as soon as you awake in the morning.  A woman's basal body temperature rises slightly with ovulation. So by recording this temperature daily for several months, you'll be able to predict your most fertile days.

Calendar method – This involves recording your menstrual cycle on a calendar for eight to 12 months. The first day of your period is Day 1.

Cervical mucus method– This involves being aware of the changes in your cervical mucus throughout the month. The hormones that control the menstrual cycle also change the kind and amount of mucus you have before and during ovulation.  Right after your period, there are usually a few days when there is no mucus present or "dry days." As the egg starts to mature, mucus increases in the vagina, appears at the vaginal opening, and is white or yellow and cloudy and sticky.
