Thank you for an up to date summary of the literature on LPD. Is it possible that the definition of a short LP being <11 is problematic and may be muddying the results of a lot of these studies? I wonder if any of the researchers ran separate analysis for LP's >8 days and whether this may paint a different picture? Is this possible? If implantation occurs typically between 8-10 days post ovulation the presumably a LP of under 8 may be relatively more problematic compared that is 8-11 days? Thanks for your time.
