After a few crazy years in which the pharma companies kept switching up my generic BC, I grew tired of feeling as though my mood depended on which pill I’d get this month. Also, to be honest… I was just tired of taking pills, and calculating my next period, etc. I’ve been on the pill for so long that I was curious about how my body functioned independently. So I stopped taking BC on Dec 10. My basal thermometer arrived a few weeks later and I began charting to get an idea for how things worked.
So my chart is all over the place and I’m at the point where AF could come any day. Do you have any idea what is happening with my body? Today’s temp (not on this chart) was 98.3 so it seems to be steadily rising. I know that waiting and continuing to chart is my best strategy, but having just come off the BC, I’m very nervous about whether I’m “normal” and what could be happening. When is your temperature supposed to drop after ovulating? Have I ovulated? What is happening? haha. My BF and I have not been careful so I don’t really know what to think at this point.
