Short ish cycles? Luteal phase?

I seem to have a 25 or 26 day cycle these days. Would have been more around the 28 mark before. It's worrying me! Been ttc for 7 months. I seem to ovulate around day 13 or 14. Then my luteal phase is about 12 days. Is this ok? I can't help worrying...I read the luteal phase is usually around 14 days. It's making me worry about hormone imbalances and all sorts...I do get quite a prolonged period of pms before AF arrives. Like maybe from about 7dpo. Anyone know anything about this?

12 days is absolutely normal. It can range from 10-16 days so i wouldnt worry at all. X

@Trying2019 thanks for replying. That's reassuring. Google will tell me anything! I just find the shortening periods a bit odd. It has happened gradually but def averaging 25/26 days now and I would have been 28/29 for years.

Where you on the pill before? maybe its just your body settling down. Least your cycle length means once AF arrives its not too long to wait for FW x

No I wasn't actually. Well, I was on it for a short while but haven't been on it for about 6 years or so now. Who knows?! I guess you are right, my two week wait is a little shorter! Every cloud...

@Lnix I’m the exact same. Used to be 28 days like clockwork until a year ago it started to shorten and now averages 25 or 26 days.

I know right? Oh well, at least we have less time to wait with each cycle for TTC!

Mine is 10 exactly. Phase before ovulation can be anything from 30 to 45 but LT always 10. Conceived 2nd month trying the first time, and first month trying the second.

My LP is currently around 9-10 days, my cycles have been getting gradually shorter since coming off the pill, it really concerns me that it may not be long enough for implantation...
