Go to www.fertilityfriend.com. That website can help you in determining when you ovulate each month. Once you know when you ovulate, count the days between then and when you start your period. For instance, if you ovulated on the 15th of last month, and your period started on the 27th, your luteal phase was 11 days. 10-15 days is normal. Anything less than 10 days is too short to carry a pregnancy because a fertilized egg doesn't have enough time to implant and start producing hormones and all that before your period starts again. But you have to know first when you ovulate, and you have to keep track for a few months to know your norm, because one short luteal phase isn't indicative of an on-going problem.
