Will someone look at my chart? When should I ovulate?

@mrstea83:  You have a pretty small variance of temps, which is fine.  Really, I can’t tell you anything about when you’ll O, as every person’s fertility pattern is different.  For me, when I’m seeing sticky CM, I know it’ll be over a week until I ovulate, but that could be totally different for you.  Temps don’t tell me much before ovulation, but cervical fluid and cervical position tell me a lot more about how close I am to ovulating.

Looks normal so far, we can’t really predict when you’ll ovulate, keep testing with those OPKs and watch for that temp spike. Hopefully it will be soon. Is this your first cycle tracking?

It looks like you may be getting ready but it’s hard to tell unless you have a few charts to compare.  Are you checking to see if your cervix is open and soft?  That was extremely helpful for me to know when I was going to ovulate.

An average cycle is 28 days.  If you take away the average luteal phase of 12 days, the average woman will ovulate on Day 16 of their cycle.  But since everyone is different, you could ovulate before then or a few days after then; some women only ovulate once every 2-3 months and every once and a while you may have an anovulatory cycle where you don’t ovulate at all.

After charting for a year I found that I rotated cycles.  One cycle would be around 35 days long and I would ovulate around CD 21.  The next cycle would be at least 65 days long and I would ovulate around CD 55.  But it took a full year of charting to figure that out!

Your temps look uniform and they look high enough to be normal which is good.  Keep using the ovulation tests until you see a temp rise.

@mrstea83:  Everyone has a different “normal” when it comes to temping, but yours look pretty textbook. You’ll start to see what your “normal” is after a few cycles. Good luck!!

Just to add, as @beachbride1216:  has mentioned cervical position, that was not at all a good indicator for me, so try it if you like but don’t worry if it doesn’t work. And as far as cycle rotating, mine does too. I’ll go back and forth between a 28 and 25 day cycle ovulating between CD 13 and CD 15.

I knew exactly what you meant, of course, but the title made me chuckle a little.  “When should I ovulate” sounded like you weren’t asking when it would happen, but like you could control it and wanted to know what time would be good.  Not trying to be glib, or insulting, or anything, I just thought “wouldn’t that be so much better!  If women could ovulate when they wanted to?”

And I hope you are successful, and have a wonderful, healthy child.  I also didn’t actually read your chart, in case you would find it weird or creepy for a guy to read it.
