@mysterybee123:  your luteal phase stays the same with the possible of maybe a 1, at the most 2, day difference so for example if you normally have a 10 day LP it will not ever be a 14 day LP-unless I suppose you take progesterone or some other drug to make it longer. The follicular phase of the cycle is what can vary. So if you ovulated late your LP should be as it always has been. Hope that helps!

I woud just like to say, the above advice is good (and the norm) but, I know for me, I’ve been traveling like crazy and noticed that every other month (heavy travel months) I ovulated late, but my period was always on time… Making a 13-15 day LP a 9/10 day LP.  So it can differ and still be “normal”.  Also, I believe you can have different LP lengths depending on which ovary you O’d out of.  Just my two cents.
