Possibly 17dpo, still BFN. But did I ovulate? Help!

Postby jill_nw » Sun Nov 20, 2016 10:19 pm

I'd love some thoughts! I know my luteal phase doesn't look the strongest, but wondering if I could still possibly be pregnant. I was in Europe for the first half of my cycle (9 hr time difference), but was there for 2 weeks so feel I adjusted to it. We were traveling back on CD 16. Chart wants to show me ovulating around day 16, but that was right when I got back and had an awful cold/sinus infection for a few days. Based on CF and CP, I think I ovulated around day 21 or 22. But is it possible that I didn't ovulate, since my chart just goes up and down? Even with the later ovulation date, I'm still 17dpo. Lots of cramping and back pain earlier this week. Now just sore breasts, fatigue and slight nausea (though I've always had occasional nausea when I get too hungry, but this feels slightly different). Had 2 bfn's so far, last one was 2 days ago. Any chance this could still be the month? Or is it possible I didn't ovulate?

The overall trend of your chart shows a separation of low and high temps, so I think you did ovulate close to where it is guessing.

Thanks! That's what I was thinking, but because of the BFN's, was starting to second guess myself...

Yeah, that is confusing... keep testing and hopefully something shows up! Do you know how long your luteal phase is usually?

I don't know how long my luteal phase tends to be. I do think I have a history of anovulatory cycles, but have been doing acupuncture and herbs to support progesterone for the last 2 cycles. Have seen a significant improvement since then though!

Well it does look like you ovulated to me! If it's been a couple of days since you've tested, I'd check again and see if anything pops up!

Thanks for the support! I noticed the very smallest amount of spotting about an hour ago (first light pink, then brown), then nothing. I'll wait another day and if no AF, I'll try again :) can't handle another bfn!

Alas, AF showed up this morning. Thanks for the good vibes but on to the next month!

Aw bummer. At least you're not left wondering. Best of luck on this next cycle!
