I’m guessing that after a few more days, FF will change your crosshairs to a different day. If you get higher temps the next 2 days, I’m guessing it will move to CD15

Agreed with the previous poster. I also think tha having your CD10 temp missing is throwing it off, as well as with the “open circle” dates where FF says you temp’d at a different time (which you may not have, but it just recorded it that way). I’d wait and see what your temps do the next couple days but from how your chart looks now I’d say you ovulated possibly a day or two ago.

Are you taking your temp the same time each morning?

It looks like as you have ovulated on cd11 due to the no temps the two days before.

Cd9 is a little early to be ovulating. Cd 11 is far more likely

The lack of a temp on CD10 and the lack of cervical fluid on the CD10-12 may be throwing it off. You may have O’ed on the 15th, but with the open circle temp you need more data to confirm this. I think CD11 looks more likely at this point. I’d try to be more consistent in inputting your cervical fluid, I think that will help a lot.

When you physically input the temp into FF won’t matter, it’s the time of day that you mark that you took it that will cause the open circles. Say you normally temp at 6:30, but one day you sleep in and temp at 7:30 instead- when you input your temps into FF you would mark the time you took the temp as 7:30 instead of 6:30 and it will give you an open circle becuase the time difference between when you took your temp that day versus when you normally take your temp may cause the temp at 7:30 to be less accurate. For me if I take it at 6 instead of 6:30 I get a closed circle, but if I take it at 7:10 I get an open one. It’s confusing. I guess maybe sleeping in changes the temp more than getting up early?

Based on your BBT chart I think you O’ed on CD 11.

@nettah:  Oooh, that’s interesting – I have never seen it not give the cover line before (that’s the horizontal line). I wonder if it’s because you’re using the OPK setting?

The dotted crosshairs means FF is not quite sure that is the right date, due to some conflicting signs. Do you have access to the Ovulation Detector section via your free account? I think that area shows a reason why they are dotted when that happens.

@nettah: I resisted the paid version until I started TTC last month, and then I went with the three-month membership, too. I was surprised how helpful the additional features have been!

Did you get another high temp today? What happens if you switch back to the regular Advanced mode of O detection now?

Last month was a rare month of crosshair musical chairs for me. Usually, FF is pretty good about getting my O-date right on the first guess, but for some reason my signs did not line up nicely last month. I finally set my crosshairs manually on CD18, and every few days I’d switch back to Advanced detection mode to see what FF was thinking at that point. It never did guess CD18 for me, but it turns out that was in fact when I ovulated, based on when AF started.

So I guess what I’m saying is that FF is good, but not always right. Sometimes you know your body better and can interpret correctly even when FF is confused.

The opk chart crosshairs look like a far more likely chart, and your temps coincide with having ovulated then too. I would always go with temps over opks or cm, temps taken correctly and at the same time never lie, whereas cm and opks can sometimes be off. Good Luck! 🙂
