Higher temps 1 week before period is due??

Postby ashlewy » Tue Oct 25, 2016 10:55 am

Just trying to reach out to anyone with a similar cycle or someone who may have some advice for me...
I've got a long cycle - 35 days. I ovulated on day 14/15 and had a pretty significant temperature dip 9 days past ovulation which I'm hoping was due to inplantation??? My temps have been higher since then and with only a week left until my period, I'm wondering if I should be hopeful with my temps high or is this normal before your period? :(

Higher like ovulation or triphasic? Temps can stay high even the first few days of af. I'd be more hopeful if the temps showed triphasic then just the dip.

Can you post your chart? Is this the first month that you have taken your temps? Are you using FF? Did it give you solid crosshairs for ovulation at CD14?

I'm asking all of this b/c with a 35d cycle, you likely don't ovulate until CD20-CD24, as a typical LP is 12-15d. With another week left until your period, I strongly suspect that "dip" you mentioned might have actually been associated with ovulation. Especially since you mention higher temps after the dip. A lot of women see a dip on the day prior to O.

However, if opks/temps confirm O for you in the CD14 range (with solid crosshairs on FF), look for AF a week earlier than usual this month (~CD28)... In that case, if that dip was due to successful implantation of a healthy fertilized egg, an hpt should be positive 3-4d later.
