A 30-year-old female asked:

Is a laten phase of 12 days normal or is it a sign of low progesterone also can a laten phase of 12 days cause a misccarrage?

Luteal?: I think you are askign about a luteal phase defect. 12 days falls within normal limits, but a lpd is not diagnosed by counting days, it's based on endometrial biopsy, two fo them. There is no clear reason for using Progesterone in your case.
