Is it possible to have a very long luteal phase??

I know my luteal phase is around 16 days but would it be possible for someone to have a luteal phase of over 20 days?

  • No. Luteal phases do not last more than 18 days but the follicular phase can be VERY VERY VERY LONG....months in women with irregular cycles.

    If you have passed 18 days past ovulation then take a test.

  • yep :( i tested at 15 and 18 dpo both were negative. But i've had a lot of people tell me that they didn't get a bfp until a week after they expected their period so I'll wait and test again next week. And i know i O'd on cd 13 cause of temping and everything and now i'm on cd 33.

  • If you have passed 18 dpo then I say get a blood test or keep testing ever 48 to 72 hours until you get a bfp.

    Sounds to me like you are pregnant...CONGRATS!!

  • Thanks! I'll have to wait and see if guess. I don't really know of any other reason that'd i'd be this late especially since i know exactly when i O'd. I hate the more than 2 week wait!
