lovekiss:  I am not TTC until next July, but I know I will not stop temping once O is confirmed (appx. 3 days after ovulation) during each TTC month. First, I have irregular cycles, so sometimes (like this month I believe) my temps have risen the appropriate amount, but I’ve had EWCM after ovulation which means I could have or am currently Oing. I honestly don’t know if it will mess with future cycles. I’ve seem some charts where women only temp starting around CD8 and stop after 5DPO and it doesn’t seem to affect each chart. I just know that it would bother me not to know if my temp was staying up or what. I would also want to see if there was an implantation dip around 5-7DPO. I also wouldn’t want to get out of the habit of temping in case TTC took longer than expected. Good luck come November!

lovekiss:  I don’t think it would mess up future cycles to stop temping, but it could give you incorrect CHs. You get the CH after 3 days of sustained temps, but many people get CH then FF moves them after a few more days of temps.

Another advantage of continuing to temp is that you can see if AF is likely to arrive (or hopefully not arrive) since your temp will drop before AF and will stay high if you’re pregnant. 

And as far as the rise, you won’t necessarily continue to rise day after day. You can, but usually you just have pre O temps below your cover line and then post O temps above cover line. And some women can have a 3rd level after implantation. But the temps can still go up and down at those levels, they just stay within a certain range.

lovekiss:  Oh I completely understand the obsessing!!! If it helps you not obsess, then I say go for it. 🙂
