Luteal Phase
Is a Luteal Phase of 12 days normal for a 26-28 day cycle - my cycle is like clockwork?
(I am trying to conceive, am 27 years old, I chart basal temperature)

The luteal phase is usually 14 days. It is the first half of the cycle which varies.
So ovulation should occur between Day 12 -14 based on your cycle.
