Asked by James

Is the luteal phase measured by the number of days with temps above the coverline or by the number of days from ovulation to the first day of menstruation?

Hi James, The luteal phase is the timeframe after ovulation (When an egg is released) and before a period begins. This means it is measured from the day ovulation occurs (typically on day 14) to the day menstruation begins (typically on day 28. This means the luteal phase typically lasts for around 14 days but this number can differ depending on the individual. Essentially, the luteal phase is between days 14-28. A top tip to help you remember is from when ovulation occurs to when a period starts. Hope this helps
