I think your body could possibly be gearing up to ovulate, or not to scare you at all, it kind of sounds like you could have an ovarian cyst. I had a cyst on my right ovary, and what you described is how it felt. My dr said its normal to get cysts sometimes and they usually resolve themselves pretty quickly (mine did). I always get that pain you’re describing around ovulation time too, but it’s usually accompanied by a + opk. Hopefully you’re just gearing up to O and you’ll get a + opk soon!

You also don’t have temps for the whole cycle, so it’s not out of the realm off possibility that you could have o’ed earlier than you though. The falling temps are still a bit odd, but I would suggest that you temp the whole month if you’re not sure.

@abc123joanna:  Do you know what your normal pre and post-O temps are?  Do you have previous cycles to compare to?  This might be a little crazy but have you taken a pregnancy test?

@abc123joanna:  Since you say you usually O around cd30 and your temps are dropping and today is cd28, it sounds like your body is gearing up to O.  You will probably get a positive OPK soon.  You may O a day or two later than normal, which is pretty typical.

@abc123joanna:  Do your temps normally stay elevated to CD20ish?  That’s why I suggested the PG test, but maybe it’s normal for you.  

Also I don’t know much about progesterone supliments but I thought that would be used only after O? In the 12-14 days before AF (menses).  Naturally, before O should be dominated by estrogen and after O progesterone.  Hormone imbalance could definitely mess with your cycle, and extra progesterone could keep your temps elevated.

@terisa2012:  That’s a good point that I hadn’t thought of.  Having elevated temps until cd20 is a little atypical.  OP, if that’s not normal for you, a test might be worth looking into.

I agree with everything @terisa2012 said. If your pre-O temps are usually around 96.4, then these temps are really high. Since you don’t temp through your period, you don’t know if your temps remain elevated. It could be that you are pregnant. If that’s the case, I’d test right away so you can go to the doctor. Your temps are dropping pretty drastically, which could indicate miscarriage *if* you’re pregnant.

Can I ask why you started taking progesterone so early in your cycle? It’s only supposed to be taken after O, right, so that could also be why your temps are so high.

good luck! I was also wondering whether you might be pregnant and about to miscarry, but my experience with charting is more or less non-existant at this time so I definitely didn’t feel comfortable throwing that out.

Take a test, talk to your doctor about the progesterone and timing in the cycle, and definitely keep us updated!

@abc123joanna:  Good luck!  I have a feeling the P is the culprit.  Let us know how it works out.

@abc123joanna:  Interesting, I’m certainly no expert, but I thought progesterone wasn’t supposed to be taken until after O is confirmed because it can suppress O. I would definitely ask you doctor about when you’re supposed to stop and start taking it. Good luck!
