    :wave: Since my periods came back after having Toby (when he was about 16 months) it's been 11 or 12 days. I did wonder if that was going to be too short and cause problems - when I was trying for the boys it was always 13 days (I assume it was shorter this time as I was still feeding Toby, although I was feeding Sam when I got pregnant with Toby too) - but clearly it hasn't, and I hope it doesn't for you either x

    It's the number of days between ovulation and your next period. It's usually 12-16 days with an average of 14 but it's pretty much constant for each person (unless you're awkward and breastfeeding like me!)
    If it's too short (some doctors consider 12 short, but generally 10 or less) then implantation may not occur before the lining of your uterus starts to shed. Implantation is usually 6-10dpo though, so even with a 10 day LP there's still hope x

    I think mine was always about 12 - didn't really track for the last few months.

    Mine are usually 14 days, although late in the cycle (I usually ovulated around CD17/18) but this time round my ovulation still wasn't pinpointed and I won't know for sure until I get a proper scan measurement. I had though that I OVd on CD18 but it could have been as late as CD23 (according to my first scan) but then that would have meant I got my bfp on 7DPO which just doesn't seem likely!

    Anyway, my 'normal' cycles I had a 14 day luteal phase xx

    My af always arrived exactly 10 days after my positive opk and I asked the doc about it and he told me not to worry. Obviously proved not to be a problem! Xx
