Anyone ever heard of a luteal phase over 16 days???? / OPEN DISCUSSION
Hi! I have been charting my temps for the past oh I would say 4 months...I have noticed that my luteal phase has been rather consistently 22 dpo? I have a clear thermal shift which is said to indicate ovulation..I was using the pen and paper method but I started using Fertilityfriend & TCOYF Ovusoft software b/c I knew for sure something wasn't right...

BUT They say the same thing my paper and pen said?!?!? I found another site that lets you chart, babymed.com.....I will start charting thru it next cycle...I am currently 18 dpo right now....I tested BFN??? I am not taking meds of any kind, so what could be going on????

luteal phase is constant, 14d....it may vary [1d give or take]from time to time depending on diff factors such as stress, medication, activities etc.... you usually subtract 14 days from your cycle...so let's say your cycle is 30d -14d = 16... so you probably would ovulate on cd 15-17....
i hope this helps... goodluck to you...

Luteal phase is usually the same within a few days for each person. For example, mine is usually 12-14 days. But from person to person it can range from inadequate, which would be less than 10 days, to longer than the 14 day average. Plenty of people have a 16 or 18 day luteal phase. I presume you are using opk's?? If not, try them for a few cycles to pinpoint ovulation better. It's possible that the increase in estrogen just before ovulation is causing a temp shift in you but it is not actually ovulation.

I have the past two cycles and they give me a positive around the same time as the thermal shift so I am completely confused.....

I'm wanting to purchase an OPK - does anyone have any suggestions about where I can get one decently priced - or would it be best to buy it online?
