Our expert says:
The picture you described is characteristic of a prolonged luteal phase (the phase between ovulation and menstruation). This does not imply that you ovulate later but that the phase from ovulation to menstruation is disproportionately lengthened. The most common cause for this is a luteal cyst, which is a hormone-producing and persistent. In such cases the use of low dose clomid (half a tablet daily) might be advisable together with careful ultra sound monitoring and luteal support in the form of progesterone which should be introduced at least 3 to 4 days after ovulation has occurred.
