Luteal phase
According yourday.com, your luteal phase must be at least 10 days long to support pregnancy. I've just worked out that mine is ony 5 days. Does this mean that I can't sustain a pregnancy? Is there any way to manipulate when ovulation occurs?

It is quite difficult to work out how long your luteal phase is. Most people have a 14 day luteal phase. I am not sure what method you have used to work this out, but you may need more accurate checking before drawing any conclusions.
