    Default Any one have a long luteal phase? Help

    Hi Ladies i am currently 15 or 16 DPO and i have heard that the luteal phase, so the day after O till AF should be 14 to 16 days.
    I have been told this does not change, and im am under the impression mine is a 14 day phase yet i dont have my af, and i keep getting negative HPT!
    If i dont get af tmrw then i definatly am having a long phase, i actually got a positive OPK on cd13 so i just dont get whats going on.
    Other than some pms signs it doesnt seem like af is coming as i always get brownish spotting a couple of days before af starts properly!
    Thoughts or advice???

    Hey Nic26, I think 14-16 days is more of an average for a luteal phase. A bit like saying a menstrual cycle is on average 28 days. I asked a similar question a while back & some ladies replied that theirs are around 17 days or longer.. I'm 4 months off the pill & still trying to sort it out! Hope that helps?! Also a positive OPK on CD13 could mean you ovulated 1-2 days after this cos the LH surge happens before the egg gets released..

    Are you sure of when you ovulated? It can sometimes be problematic to pinpoint!

    It's not uncommon for ovulation to fizzle out then the body immediately gear up to ovulate again, hence you can have a positive OPK but ovulate later than you thought (especially if you have a virus, tired, stressed, or PCOS, etc, or can just happen for no reason at all).

    It sounds like your luteal phase isn't tooo long... i dont think there's a huge varation in the luteal phase, it's more that there's a hgue variation in when people ovulate.... but you could be pregnant but not getting a postiive test yet too!? Hope you get an answer really really soon.

    Thank you, well im hoping its just that im pg and the hpt just isnt my friend, but the one thing im sure about is that i did O because of my endo i can actually tell when i O by the pains, my specialist said its normal with endo to feel what i do at that time, how ever maybe im out by a day or so. FX its because there is a bubba in there!!!! Has any one got negative HPT on cd 30 and still been pregnant???
