Lutual phase
How long can this phase be? I know they say 14 days is the norm. But what is the shortest it can be and what is the longest it can be without standing a chance not to fall pregnant?

Dear SR

In general the luteal phase shorter than 10 days or more than 18 days would be considered abnormal and the likelihood of a pregnancy would then be markedly reduced.
