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.
