My luteal phase is longer than normal, my temperatures are still up and I don’t have my period yet. What does this mean?
Within an individual woman, the length of the luteal phase is usually consistent, being the same number of days each cycle (give or take a day or so). If you are at least 2 days beyond your normal luteal phase length, there’s a good chance that you are pregnant so you might like to take a test!
If the result is positive, congratulations! You may like to make an appointment with your doctor to confirm your pregnancy and to arrange for prenatal care.
If the result is negative, it may be because it’s still a little too early for the test to detect your pregnancy hormones. Alternatively, you may simply have ovulated later than your chart suggests and your luteal phase is still within its normal length.
