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)
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)
