Late Surges and Luteal Phases
Sat, 02-06-2010 - 4:16am

My cycle used to be a consistent 28 days, now it varies by a day or so at 26 or 27 days. I am into my second box of OPK sticks and finally this AM I am seeing my surge - at day 16. If actual ovulation is tomorrow at day 17, from what I have read on the Net I would be cutting it close as at least a '10 day luteal phase is needed to support pregnancy'.

Anyone have any thoughts or experiences with late surges and luteal phases?

I recommend taking B-6. I believe that is supposed to help lengthen it. - martha
