Can anyone tell me the normal range for luteal phases? What is the maximum length?

Normal is 12-16 though as long as your LP is at least 10 days then you shouldn't worry about having too short a LP.

If you are 3-4 days past your longest LP then you can assume you're pregnant (at least that is what I remembe TCOYF saying)

Any other questions?

Page 48:

"The second phase of the cycle, from ovulation to the last day before the new period begins, is the luteal (or progestational) phase. It usually has a finite life span of 12-16 days."

Is that what you needed?

Thanks, guys. That is exactly what I needed.

I am on my second cycle since my fertility returned. Last cycle, my lp was 11 days. I am now 13 dpo with no sign of AF, but am sick and have a fever, so temping is useless until I get back to normal. What timing, huh?
