Any other FAMers that can help me understand my chart?

If it wasn’t for the low temp on day 17, I’d think you ovulated on day 15. I often have a dip below the coverline due to the estrogen surge around 6 dpo – and your dip would be 4 dpo if you ovulated on day 17 but 6 dpo if it was day 15. But I’m not really sure – this is a tough one! I’d keep using condoms for the next few days and see what happens with your chart going forward. Good luck!

I agree with KatieBklyn:. Assuming CD16 one of the days you slept in, which would make your temp higher then it would otherwise have been, I think you probably O’ed CD15. If so 6DPO temp drop is normal time for a corpus luteum dip. I’d use back-up just to be sure, but I’ll bet that’s what happened.

Another thought: When you sleep in before O it normally causes a temp rise, but when you sleep in post-O it normally causes a temp drop (due to the amount of estrogen in your system, which sets your BBT). Maybe your drinking on the 5th is reacting the same way, causing a super low drop when combined with your corpus luteum dip? Just a thought, not sure if it’s valid or not. my temp always goes up when I drink, regardless.
