Request for plain English description
I am not a doctor. Neither a medical body. More over english is not my mother tongue. Can any one help me with an ordinary description about luteal phase and make grateful?
Chart needs to also show testosterone levels through the cycle

Luteal phase defect
- why is pathology combined with a physiologic phenomenon? Whyis there not a seperate page on : Luteal phase defect? (126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:17, 24 July 2012 (UTC))
This section is one-sided, myopic, and offensive. As a behavioral neuroendocrinologist, I deeply hope that this section is edited to make it impartial and that the new information is supported by empirical data. For example, this section would be better served by a description of the influence of gonadal hormones associated with the luteal phase and depression (also known premenstrual dysphoric disorder or late luteal phase dysphoric disorder). Holy inaccuracies, Batman. Sheesh.
Update and re-insertion of Behavioral Effects section
In the aforementioned section that was and will be in the article, it has been brought to my attention that it is outdated and not following WP:POV. I am in the process of working with other editors to flesh out this section and make it not only more presentable, but also accurate and verifiable. Please see the following sources that I will be referencing for the upcoming re-write. I ask that no one deletes the section again, unless discussed here with a consensus, or no improvements are made in a reasonable amount of time (7 days).
