BBT dip at 4DPO

Postby Bashert0524 » Wed Apr 20, 2011 8:59 am

Hi Ladies,

I'm new to this site (was previously a stalker). DH & I have been TTC for 13 months. We're in the midst of cycle #14. Today I'm 4DPO, and had a BBT dip to my coverline.

I'm not sure if this is good, bad or indifferent? I've read that you could have a BBT dip at implantation, but 4DPO is way early for that. I've also ready that you could get a BBT dip after O as a result of an estrogen surge... either way, I was so sure we had our timing just right this month -- did everything perfectly... I was really feeling like we were going to get a :bfp: ... now my mind is all consumed by the BBT dip.

Has anyone experienced something similar?

I too had a dip on 4 DPO but this is my first cycle actually making it through temping the whole time. I usually give up after a week. I don't think it means anything as implantion dips usually come on days 6 through 11 I think. I don't quite know. But good luck to you and keep us posted!

Hi nikip25!

I had a dip at 4 DPO as well. It's not at all uncommon. It's possible that you had an early implanation dip, but it's also possible your temp dropped as a result of an estrogen surge post O. As long as your temp shoots back up, it's still quite possible your PG :D

Good luck!!

My BBT took a nose dive at 4 DPO, and at 5 DPO shot right back up and has been continuing to rise, so I'm remaining optomistic.

Mine shot back up too! It has stayed up and Monday the 25th marks 10 DPO. Looks like we are cycle buddies? Any symptoms? I hope day 4 was an implantation dip!!!
Lots of luck and baby dust to you too!!
