Was wondering if anyone had any info on this..
Darling Husband and I finally tied the knot last August. We knew we wanted to start TTC straight away so I came off BC just before our honeymoon in Sept and we discussed that we would officially start TTC when my cycles regulated (and NTNT until then). Anyway I thought I was pretty lucky as my cycles seemed to regulate straight away back to 28 days (pre BC I always had a 28 day cycle), so yay we started TTC in Oct. So lo and behold my body starts playing tricks on me. My Oct, Nov and Dec cycles all jumped to 34 days.
In Oct I was just monitoring CM and was pretty sure I ovulated around CD14 (as with my previous cycles).
In Nov I decided to use opk’s as well to try and pinpoint O date a bit better. Again, monitoring CM I had ewcm and a + on the opk on C13, indicating that I ovulated on CD14. (no AF until CD 34).
So this past cycle I started charting, and by looking at my chart it seems I have a pretty standard chart. Temp spike was on CD14 and stayed elevated until AF showed up on CD34. 9again indicating O on CD14).
My issue is with pinpointing O to CD14, it seems my luteal phase is around 20 days, which according to all info out there is far too long. (norm 12-16 days i think?). There’s a ton of info out there on short LP’s but not much around long LP’s. Is this something I should be worrying about? We will now be moving in to TTC cycle 4, so I know it’s still early days it just seems weird to me that I regulated but now seem to have this extra long LP phase. Only thing I did differently in the past 3 months was start taking prenatal vitamins. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you and good luck on your TTC journeys! 🙂
