Unfortunately I think it sounds like you might not have O’d.  Is this your first month charting?  Has this happened before?  Are you newly off BCP? 

I don’t know if you use fertility friend or a site to chart, did they take away your crosshairs?

@blayne7: temps in the mid 96’s are relatively low. Could you have PCOS or something else related to your thyroid?

I have temps in the mid 96’s too and I’ve O’d each month so it might not necessarily be that, but I’d be more concerned that it’s dropping so quickly.

I would wait and see what happens, was your bedroom a lot cooler than before? I know something like that can sometimes influence temps.

My temps are typically in the mid 96s, too…so I wouldn’t be concerned about that.  However, it sounds like your body tried to O, but didn’t since the temps dropped back down.  I’d keep BDing, just in case, if I were you!  Also, definitely keep tracking your temps daily.

@blayne7:   When it’s really cold out it seems to affect my temp 2-3 tenths…just fyi.  I shouldn’t change things a whole ton.

For me, it took 3 months to fully understand my chart.  After you’ve charted a few months you can start comparing the temperatures to understand what is a normal fluctuation of temperatures and what means that you’ve O’d.
