In brief: It should ...
The 2nd half of the cycle (luteal phase) starts with ovulation and ends with a period, or goes on into pregnancy.
Most luteal phases should be 13-14 days. The most accurate ways of telling the length are to use an ovulation predictor kit, or ultrasound monitoring if seeing a fertility md (rei). If you have a short luteal phase or long cycles (35-40 days or more) get checked by rei to find out why.
