How long is your luteal phase?

Well, I'm back in the 2ww; except for me, its a 16 day wait.  2 wks seems to last forever and then you add 2 more days to it, which makes it seem interminable.  Anybody else have a longer phase?  Or shorter one?

Hi naturschld,  I usually have a 8 day luteal phase, which you know is no good for a pregnancy.  My MD gave me progesterone twice a day until AF is to show, then i POAS and if (-), i stop the med, if (+), its my BFP and I keep taking it. But yea, mine is now short...Is your phase really longer than 14 days or do you ovulate later than you realize.  I read somewhere that a luteal phase is pretty much consistent at 14 DPO..I could be wrong, though.  TTYL.

Hi Debra, I'm pretty sure about my luteal phase length after doing bbt for quite a few months.  Also, from using OPK's.  I have read the same thing as you about the luteal phase.  I think in a perfect world where everybody's body did the same thing it might be true, but look at us.  Your's is shorter and mine is longer.  Wouldn't it be nice if our bodies listened to the rules? :)
