April 29 - 24 days
May 23 - 26 days

It all depends on when you are ovulating. 


What matter is your luteal phase - the period of time after you ovulate but before the start of your period.  A "normal" phase is 14 days long, and anything less than 10 can give you problems (although some docs say 12 is a problem, and others aren't concerned unless it is 7 or 8). 


So if you are ovulating early in your cycle, short cycles are ok.  But if you are ovulating later it could be an issue.


I have a 26 day cycle and usually O on day 17... so a 9 day LP.  We have been having trouble conceiving because of it.


Have you tried charting to track when you are ovulating?
