Can anyone beat this? I only really realised this when I properly did some counting when I didn't manage to concieve quickly.

Reckon I win. I hereby award myself a Lion Bar

Hey that's good, means you get more chances per year.

It's only bad I think if your luteal phase is less than 10 days.

Good perspective, GAL!

I have no idea what a luteal phase is - guess I probably should!

It's the bit after you ovulate. So if you ovulate on day 10 of your 21 day cycle you are a-ok.

I have a short cycle too, usually 26 days but I ovulate bang on 12 so I get a full LP. I'm with girlsaloud - it's a benefit as I get more cycles in - more bang for my buck as it were! wink

Thanks for explanation, GAL. I hope I have an adequate luteal phase... grin

You can share that lion bar with me, actually, because you are not alone

Great when you're baby-making, a total PITA at all other times

I'm afraid the Lion Bar lasted approximately 45 seconds after the post was made, sorry castille! blush Glad to hear I'm not alone though...
