Last month (my first month temping) my temp only went from 36.5C (97.7) in the first half od my cycle to 36.7 (98.06) for the 2nd half. Is that enough of a temp shift to indicate ovulation? I was expecting more.

I’m far from an expert but from everything I read when I was charting, iit should be, which is why it is important to use a BBT thermometer since they are sensitive to the hundredths place rather than a regular thermometer. As you get more used to temping you’ll see what is common for you. My first few months of charting weren’t the best until I got into a rhythm and became very consistent.

Yup they say .2 degree shift in C and a .4 degree shift in F. So it looks good to me!!!!!
Did the shift stay elevated for a minimum of 3 days and coincide with other fertility signs? CM or Cervix position?

Thanks ladies. It stayed up there for 9 days. And, yes, I have to get a BBT. Just wondering if not o-ing is something I should worry about.

My coverline is usually about 36.3 (pre-ovulation) and goes up to about 36.6 or so. Do you track your cervical fluid? You will notice that when you wipe after going to the bathroom, it will be extra slippery and look like eggwhites. When that disappears, you know that you have ovulated with the temp shift.
