LONG luteal phase?

I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of having TOO long of a luteal phase? I tend to ovulate around day 10 (starting to see signs of it already) and then I have about 20 days of a luteal phase before AF. Does anyone know if this hinders TTC?

Thanks.

From what I understand, a short luetal phase can be problematic.  I've never heard of a problem with a long luetal phase.  Is it always 20 days?  If it's consistant, that's good too.

How do you know that your luteal phase is that long?  Do you BBT?

I have been temping and using OPK's - so that's how I know it is long.  Two months ago it wasn't that long, but for some reason I got AF 7 days early too.

Are you sure you're Oing on CD10? If so, how do you know? Are you charting BBT and/or using OPKs? I think a normal LP can be anywhere from 11-16 days long. 20 days seems long but usually the problem arises when ttc in having a short LP. Ask your doctor for some more answers but if you're not charting bbt or using opks, I would start because your cycle length is a normal 30 days and doesn't seem like cause for concern.

You are over the average, but if it is consisent I would think it is OK.  I really don't see a way to shorten it.  You can ask your doctor.  It doesn't seem like it would be a problem, but I'm only going by my own opinion.  I wouldn't be concerned about it if it were me.

This is an old post, but I NORMALLY have a very long LP between 16-18 days LONG!   Last month my RE had me do a CCCT & this month I did nothing, except I took 1000mg of EPO & I always take a B6,B12 & folic supp.  Anyways, this month I began to spot dark dark blood late on 8DPO, & bled lightly on 9DPO like a light peroid.  Today is 10DPO & it's very little, but my regular ob told me to begin prog. so I did yesterday.
He called me today & left me a message saying that my 7DPO came back super low, it has NEVER been this low...just under 4 ;(  So maybe thats why I began to bleed?  At frist I thought it was implantation bleeding.  This is very strange!
Why would it change SOOO drastically, literally overnight???  I am 40, but I have NEVER had anything like this, always super regular.
Any thoughts???
