Well there is still a point recording temps. If I didn’t record I’d think I O’d 2 weeks ago which obviously isn’t the case. I work nights so can’t temp the same time everyday. My GP is aware of this and has told me to continue.

There really isn't any point your GP has given you wrong info, if this is the same GP who didn't order tests to be done then I would definately get a second opinion. The ladies here are just trying to help you, alot have a lot of experience with temping etc and I promise you taking them at different times will confuse the matter. This is from fertility friend

"Take your temperature before rising in the morning as any activity can raise your BBT. Take your temperature at the same time every morning. Take your temperature after at least three consecutive hours of sleep. Keep your thermometer accessible from your bed so you do not have to get up to get it."

Can you take it when you wakeup or are you sometimes days and sometimes nights?

Sounds about right to be honest from my doctor. No I just work nights. I test at 3pm after I’ve had some sleep when I’m working and my days off I test at 8am.

I’ve thought about doing two different charts but not sure how it would work.

don't give up on the temping, even if the timing isn't optimal. We can clearly see a shift this month (even if it didn't happen when you thought it should have), so it's obviously working to some degree. TBH, the timing of my temping varied by 3-4hrs some days b/c I woke a lot during the night. I would just temp when I woke to pee the first time--anywhere from 4a-7a. When I temped an hour after I got up, it wasn't much different...

Sperm can live up to 5-6d, so that one BD might still be enough for you. Don't give up hope there, either.

It's not me trying to be discouraging, I remember when I was TTC andI would rather people be honest because all that would do is delay me taking action on sorting out my cycles. Your chart does show a dip but it also shows a much earlier dip- I would really advise getting your day 21bloods done, they will tell you if you're ovulating because the different timed temps aren't a solid enough indication and it could be a matter of so ethi g so small like taking clomid for a cycle to give you your bfp. There isdefinztely something offwith your charts (this is not meant to offend,saying it to help), and the quicker you find out what the closer you will be to your bfp. Encouraging words are great but at the end of the day you need clear course of action or clear cut yes I O'd on this dY or no I didn't O so this is what I'll do about it- to get to that bfp. It's scary I know, I was TTC for 5years and eventually went to IVF but if I hadn't made that first move to acknowledge that something wasn't quite right then maybe I'd still be TTC now. Especially in UK, you need to get on it fast because the waiting takes time. From when I asked for bloods until my IVF was around 18months. So start the process and if you get your bfp in the meanwhile then amazing, but if not at least you'll hVe started the journey.

Thanks! I was supposed to book in for my bloods next cycle but I’m away on holiday on th 19th and due to having another long cycle I’m not going to be able to do that’s yet another month gone by.

I got 2 faint lines this morning but they were blue dyes so not looking into it. I may go and grab some pink dyes later if I can find the courage to go out in the snow.

Yeah I didn’t think anything of it to be honest. It’s just hard to see tests in cases because of the glare from the window and I know blue dyes are prone to evaps.

Pink dye said bfn. I’ll see what my temp is doing tomorrow. Got sore boobs though which usually means AF is coming.

Temp slowly going back up after dip at 11DPO. Could this have been implantation? I’ve seen a lot of ladies who went on to get their BFP get a slight dip at 10/11DPO?

Wouldn't be able to tell as temps are taken T different times, but hopefully it's a good sign! Test in a few days and see what happens, good luck!
