hiiiii !
well, i've read the page on our cycles etc.
i just have a hugeeee question.

i just passed the secretory phase, like 3 days ago, and i was wondering,
how long after you finish the secretory phase would your period appear??

Also, a second question. Does having a secretory phase tell you whether you're pregnant or not?

i'll appreciate your answer guys

The secretory, or "luteal phase" as it's commonly known, is the set period between ovulation and the next menstruation. It's generally the same length each cycle for a particular woman, even though ovulation can fluctuate. This is because a particular woman's body produces a set amount of progesterone for a set number of days.

It usually lasts between 10-16 days, with the average being 14 days. After this, if there's no pregnancy, menstruation will start. In women charting their cycles, a longer-than-usual luteal phase is usually the first indicator of pregnancy. [Smile]

But, unless you're charting, it's no use fussing over. Most women can't tell when their luteal phase has begun or how long it lasts until months of charting have passed.

Hey Lauren, thank you so much for your quick response.
So i guess i just need to wait for my period to come.

i stopped having those secretions that happen during the luteal phase so i guess that phase is over?.
sorry to insist but is there a number or days? a week maybe that needs to pass after ive finish the luter phase in order for my period to come? or there is just not number of days? :S oh im so sorry to ask again
