What a luteal phase is? Is it the number of days you have between the end of a cycle, and ovulation??...I'm not sure I'm understanding it correctly...

Yep. What she said. ^^ If you are 13 DPO, then you are on day 13 of your LP.

It doesn't range a lot for a woman. Usually, if you have a 14 day LP (like I do-and many women do), then you typically have a 14 day LP. Sometimes it'll sway a day or two in each direction, but more often, what's actually inconsistent is the ovulation day and not the LP.

Also-women with very short LP's don't typically sustain a pregnancy. It's more common for a woman with 12 or more days to have sustainable pregnancies. I may be wrong on that number, but it's something like that. 9 day LP women rarely sustain-I know I've read that.

^^^Ohhhh now I get it! and that answered my next question too (how it effected fertility). I was mixing it up with the fist half of your cycle, thinking it would effect fertility if you ovulated too soon...guess I was a little confused

Thanks ladies!
