Rocky temps, when did I ovulate?

Postby em.human » Tue Nov 08, 2016 12:46 pm

Hi everyone! My first post on here, sorry its so long... DH and I have been TTC for 4 months now I'm 29, he's 33. I have had irregular cycle lengths since removing my IUD last January (anywhere from 30-45 days long). But since tracking my CM and BBT for the last 3 months, I’ve been happy to notice more consistency (last 2 cycles were 30 days each, O’ed on CD 14 and 15.) This month is different though…

Noticed a temp rise on CD 17 and assumed O took place on CD 16 (BDing plenty in the days leading up to this). Normal enough, but was bummed to notice no EWCM beforehand.. But then my temp dropped 3 days later for 2 days in a row (CD 20+21), below my usual coverline. (Also, I’m not sure if it was longer than this, as I didn’t temp for the 2 days that followed). Noted some EWCM on CD 22. Then temp was back up above coverline by CD 24 and has stayed steady, well above coverline. BFN on CD 33, and fast forward to now and I am at CD 36, temps still high, still no sign of AF.

From my past couple months of temping, it seems like my LP is 14-15 days… but what I am trying to figure out now is: When the heck did I O?? And if I actually didn’t O until CD 22/23 then why did my temp spike so high for 3 consistent days beforehand? I’ve been trying to research online but I can’t tell if this might be a sign of PCOS or some other possible issue… Feeling frustrated…

That definitely sounds confusing! I would lean towards saying you were correct with your original O date. Have you tested again? Even if you did O on CD 22 or 23, if you are pregnant you could possibly get a positive test by now. Fingers crossed!

I get so depressed from the BFN... I think I will wait for a day or 2 more to rule out the later O possibility. If no temp drop/af by then I will test for sure.

Thanks for your thoughts @BeeCee33 !
