@ GardenRose   Ovulation “dips” are generally followed by an extreme rise in temps (to show ovulation). Honestly, I don’t think your rise is one that signifies ovulation yet…although your OPK’s are positive. FWIW, not everyone gets a “dip” and they are not necessarily a reliable way to detect O.

Based on opks and temps you might have ovulated on CD 17 but you need to see continued higher temps for the next couple of days.  If you did ovulate on CD 17 then you wouldn’t really need to BD anymore and you hit the two days prior to ovulation, which is great.  But you really didn’t have much of a temp spike so I would say go for today too and keep going every other day if you don’t start seeing higher temps.

I wouldn’t worry about an ovulation dip either.  But I would guess either CD17 or today- CD18 will be marked as O day assuming you get out another 3 or 4 days with higher temps.  If you don’t have any cervical fluid today and your cervix is closed then I would guess it was yesterday at CD17.  Sometimes I had rises like that.  Your temp should go up higher tomorrow.  I would probably have sex tonight and then if your temp goes up higher tomorrow call it good.

I think you may have ovulated today but I’d keep BD through the sustained temp rise just in case

@ GardenRose   Ovulation probably occurred on CD17 based on your CM, OPKs and your temp rise on CD18. Not everyone gets an ovulation dip and not everyone gets a steep rise the day after. As long as you have 3 temps above your coverline between today and Saturday it should give you CH. It’s a more gradual rise than some, but it’s still pretty obvious looking at your chart that CD18’s temp falls above where your CL would be. If you did ovulate yesterday then any BD from now on won’t count….but I wouldn’t stop BD-ing until you have your 3 raised temps confirming ovulation and you have any post-O symptoms you might normally get in a cycle after O.

I definitely think you did and that OpK was blaring positive

Another vote for CD17.  And your BD timing is perfect this month 🙂  Fingers crossed for you!
