BBT chart - Please help me read my chart! :)

Postby BBS » Wed Aug 22, 2018 1:02 pm

Hi. I recently started tracking my BBT and LH surges. I see a dip which appears to be ovulation on 8/12. You can see the LH surges on my tests on 8/9 and 8/10. On 8/10 I took a Clear Blue Ovulation test and it was positive.
In the first chart pic on 8/18 I had a major dip in temp of 96.37° (possibly implantation?). I decided this was an outlier since it was my 2nd temp for the morning and choose to use an earlier temp of 97.47°. Both temps were taken 20 minutes apart. I was laying in bed and dozed off before taking the 2nd temp that was lower.
Anyways... what do you see with my chart? I ended my pack of BCP on July 31st so Aug 1st is my first day without them. I was only on them for 4 months so I am happy that my ovulation schedule seemed to stay in place.
Any insights would help.
Thank you.

Hi BBS, you can see that you Ovulated on August 12th (which is inline with having an LH surge on the 10th).
As for the "implantation" dip - I've had those on my charts loads and its never meant a pregnancy for me - everyone is different, but for me, on the months I got a BFP, I didn't have a dip in my luteal phase.
How are you getting on so far?

Here is my current BFP chart so you can have a look (my positive OPK was on July 9th and I ovulated on July 11th).

Thank you for responding. Unfortuntely, AF showed up but at least she was exaxctly on time. I had treated the "implantation dip" as an outlier and removed it from my charts. On the bright side, I am glad I had a chart that seemed to be normal and hopefully could expect to get PG if all goes well.

Hi BBS, sorry to hear AF arrived - and thanks for the update! I always wonder what the outcomes on these posts are!
Good luck catching the egg this month :)
