The Luteal Phase is the latter part of the menstrual cycle. I'm gonna quote on this one so it is clearer for everyone:

" a term that is used in describing the time period that's calculated from the day after ovulation and runs through the remainder of a monthly cycle. This phase usually lasts between 12 and 16 days and is fairly consistent within woman's cycle...

...During the luteal phase a women produces progesterone increasing her temperature. The higher temperature acts like an incubator which is important in maturing a fertilized egg if conception has occurred. "

That is also being referred to frequently as DPO or 'days past ovulation'.
