You may have ovulated on CD 15 but it’s too early to tell. Do you have a temp for today? It usually takes at least one or two full cycles to see when you are ovulating. I’d wait a few days and see how your temps lay out.

MrsM914:  I also work nights/days on rotation.  So I temp after I wake up from a block of sleep when I’m on nights (I’m also on nights right now. Wahoo.  No, not really.)  

I’ve noticed (first month off the pill) that even after a block of sleep my nights temps are higher than my day shift temps. I’ve put in a custom note on FF to track my night shifts on the chart easily (so when I look at it I can tell easily if the spikes correlate with night shift.)  

http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/53972b (that’s my chart, if you want to see what I mean.  Also, I was on vacation until yesterday, so there should have been a lot more night shifts this month!) 

I ended up discarding the earlier night shift temps this month.  I’m not sure if I’m going to have to now.  

What I’m hoping is to see if there’s a pattern (ie: on nights I’m consistently xdegree higher than on days) but I think its going to take a few months to sort it out.  But then I might be able to correct for nights (at least in my own mind, maybe not on FF.) 

I think when we finally get around to trying, I’m going to have to take OPK tests as well.

Also I didn’t O anywhere near day 14 this month, it’s still pretty early.  That high temp – was it a night shift?

MrsM914:  I added you on FF.  I hope that’s ok.  I thought it might be nice to have someone else who has the same night shift challenges on there!

Technically speaking, for an OPK to be considered positive, the test line needs to be as dark or darker than the control line.  However, many women never get a line as dark as the control, and still ovulate, so it’s possible you did.  It’s also possible, especially since it’s your first month off BC, that your body geared up to ovulate but never actually released an egg.

It doesn’t look like you o’d yet. I agree with Miss Apricot:  your body probably got ready to O but never did. its possible it will take a while for your body to regulate after coming off the pill.
