Long luteal Phase?


Does having a longer luteal phase affect your chances of getting pregnant? I started to get + OPKS at CD17 and still am at CD21. My cycle is usually 30 days long. If a longer LP is a problem, what can be done to solve it?

OPK today (You ladies can double check that it is indeed positive, since your all pros at it, lol, I think it looks a bit darker then the one from CD17 that I have pics of)

CD 17:



CD 21(Today):

The LP is the days from ovulation til getting your period, so if you ovulate on CD 17 of a 30 day cycle that's a 13 day LP - well within normal. Good times!


If what you are referring to is the number of days you are getting +opks for, you should go and see a doc in my opinion. I got the same thing and it turned out to be PCOS. x

No, I have only been getting + OPKs for 4 days now.

Your luteal phase is the time from Ovulation until AF arrives. Your luteal phase usually never changes (with the exception of a couple days)

So if you normally ovulate on CD 17 and have 30 day cycles, then LP is 13 days
if the next month you dont O until CD 23 for example, your luteal phase is still 13 days so your cycle will actually be 36 days.

If you have a long luteal phase (normally longer than 16 days) than that can fertility. (or a short one for that matter - shorter than 10 days)
