It is more likely to be the follicular phase. The luteal phase completes before bleeding starts
This should not be an issue for fertility.
Hormones can cause an irregular bleed. But the phase seems irrel
How long have you been trying?
I did sorry, it cut off my last work sorry
This method is not useful. You can have a delayed or prolonged bleed, this does then not imply the stage
What is the question you are asking? If you are fertile? If you are ovulating?
Okay. So the easiest thing you can do is do an ovulation test from day 11-16 as this is when it is most likely to be positive. If this is not positive at all then you can check this with a blood test
If you do then there is a very good chance that you are
That is my pleasure
From what you have said this shouldn’t have an impact
If worried, get some bloods done
That is my pleasure. I am not a fertility specialist. But manage fertility investigations regularly and what you describe is within my expertise
For your reassurance some bloods to check for ovulation would be helpful, it at 6 months you haven’t conceived then would be worth checking then. But do remember with normal fertility it can take 1-2 years to conceive
