@beejoyful: Have you temp’d to confirm O in previous cycles? If so, how many months of BBT have you charted? If you have confirmed O (by temps) in those previous months I wouldn’t be too concerned. There is always a chance that you’re still going to ovulate. Can you link to your chart so we can see?

I found that OPK’s aren’t the best predictors of ovulation. If you have a short surge it is very easy to miss if you don’t use them multiple times a day. Are you taking your temperature consistently at the same time every day? The reason I ask is because even a 1/2 hour can make your temperatures look a little wacky. I would rely more on taking your temperature every morning at the exact time. Try to limit alcohol before bed and get to bed around the same time. This should give you a clearer picture of what is going on with your body. Also, fertility friend is a great charting website and helps interpret your charts for you. Since you have a regular length cycle I wouldn’t worrt about it too much, it could have been a one time thing or just that your detection methods weren’t accurate.

I 100% agree with everything @Running Elley: says, but one more thing – even if you O regularly, it is perfectly normal to have an anovulatory cycle every once in a while.  There are a thousand and one things that have to go exactly right to O (or get KU for that matter), so it makes sense that every once in a while one would go wrong.

I thought that women in general have one anovulatory cycle a year anyway. I was horrible at temping, but always got my OPKs to show a surge same time every cycle.

@cascadecherub:  there is no hard and fast rule, but I think that is what the statistics average out to.

@beejoyful:  One more thing (and then I will shut up) – if you continue to chart anovulatory cycles, you may want to try temping internally.  It is generally more accurate and could potentially help you pinpoint O (especially as you are seeing “favorite” temps.)

(Okay – one more.)  If you want to share a link to your chart(s), go to your chart page on FF and then click the “Sharing” pull-down menu at the top right of the screen, then “Get Code.”  At the top of the page, it will say “Your Charting Home Page Web Address” – copy and paste that link into your post on WB.  Just for reference, here is what it should look like (obv your code will be different): http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/352a3e

You should join the charting thread – tons of great info and support over there!

@beejoyful:  The others have covered most stuff I was going to say – but definitely be aware that the OPK’s or Ferning Kits are mostly kind of touch and go unless you combine them with your temping & CM, etc. It’s super easy to miss your LH surge and assume that you got no positives, when you body is actually telling you something else! (Been there, done that!)

Enjoy the experience! 🙂

@beejoyful: Hahaha TTC definitely channeled my inner scientist too 🙂 I just checked out your chart, since you still had EWCM yesterday I think there is still hope for O’ing this month. It seems like it’ll be a wait and see thing. Good job temp’ing internally, it makes a huge difference!
