Based on the information in the chart, it doesn’t look like you ovulated. Sorry. To really have ovulation confirmed, there is a temperature spike and you don’t have at on either chart.

I think you are ovulating but it’s hard to pick a day. I would recommend temping through your entire cycle so you can see better patterns. It looks like you tend to skip at least the first week if not halfway into the second.

@FauxBoho:  I think you are ovulating (cd14 in march, cd15 in june), but your temp spikes are really shallow. Sometimes that’s fine, sometimes that means there’s a problem, such as a thyroid disorder or weak ovulation. If you have a doc that’s willing to be proactive, you could ask for thyroid testing and to test progesterone at 7dpo to confirm whether or not you are ovulating strong enough. If your progesterone comes back low, many ladies on the bee have been prescribed clomid to strengthen ovulation. Hopefully, though, it’s not a problem at all!

Good luck!

You may also want to start charting CM and using OPk’s as it will give FF more to work with to pin point ovulation.

I would say you ovulated CD16 in March and CD15 in July.  I would look into some other tests to see why your spike isn’t as noticeable, but I do see a biphasic pattern.  I agree with PP that recording CM and OPK results would probably help FF be more confident in assigning an O date.  I think their algorithms may require a minimum jump in temperatures though, so perhaps you just didn’t quite meet that this time.  Good luck with the hyperthyroidism supplements, hopefully that will help as well.

@FauxBoho:  I also think you are ovulating, but your post ovulation temperatures are very low. Maybe a check with the doctor is not a bad thing. Good luck!

FF is also reluctant to give CHs if there are more than a few missing temps, I know it’s a PITA but you should really try to temp at the same time every day.  And try not to adjust your temps too much (I know it’s tempting when your chart looks all crazy!), it is harder to detect true patterns if you are altering them (even if its justified).

I do think you ovulated both times like PP’s have said, but I think the missing temps and slow/low rise is throwing FF off from giving you the CH’s.  I also suggest noting other fertility signs (CM and CP, OPKs if you want).  It definitely helps.

I think you O-ed on CD 16 in march & CD 15 in june but you’re not getting a HUGE temp shift. I think if you put more data into your chart FF would give you crosshairs (CM & CP) but it’s worth looking into why you’re not getting a more significant shift.

@FauxBoho: If you are waking up because you have to pee, and holding it/forcing yourself to stay in bed for another hour, your temps aren’t true first waking temps anyway. If you tend to wake up at 6:30 every morning then you should temp then and get up to pee. If you want to go back to bed for an hour, go for it. But you might find that you like the extra quiet time in the morning.
