*sends hugs* It know it’s discouraging to have so many days of dropping temps, but it definitely looks like you’re in for a big ovulation spike any day now! Hope you’ve been getting it on with your hubby! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Can you post last month’s chart for us? That might help us get a better feel for what might be going on.

@babybunny: I agree! You haven’t had EWCM yet, so you may just be in for a late ovulation. I bet you’ll see it spike soon.

I only ovulate every other month (from my right side, not my left ovary) because I have pretty severe PCOS, but if you have no symptoms I don’t think you should jump to being anovulatory.

Are you just coming off birth control? Sometimes the first cycle can be picture perfect and then your body adjusts to being without it and you get long cycles with late ovulations. Just a thought!

Hang tight and keep BD-ing!, I bet it’s coming soon!

This is only my first month charting, but my chart was really sporatic as well. It varied by several tenths of a degree every single day.Like you, I was really worried I was not going to O. However, I wound up ovulating on CD17. Like other people say, hopefully soon you will get your spike, but I definitely don’t think your chart means you are out of the game!

It’s defintely anvovulatory right now.  Every now and then, I will get a chart like that.  I’ve been charting since 2005. 

My best charts are always the one after the pill and then my body goes nutty for a bit and comes around again on cycle 3 or 4.   I find that a vitamin B complex helps a lot!

I wouldn’t worry. I have delayed ovulation many months and not only did I get pregnant but my pre-o temps were not always picture perfect. What matters is that you eventually get a sustained spike before getting your period. If you were to get your period tomorrow, that’d be an anovulatory cycle. But right now it just looks like your temps may be lowering as your body prepares to ovulate, which is normal. And you clearly ovulated last month, so that’s a good sign.

I would agree that you’re likely going to O any day now, don’t get discouraged. Your cycles are probably still leveling out after coming off the pill. Keep us posted, but I’d be willing to bet you get your spike tomorrow or the next day ๐Ÿ™‚

I know it is hard not to worry, but because you are so recently post-pill, it is totally normal to have some wacky cycles.  They could sort themselves out right away or it could take a few months.

It looks like your body may be getting ready to ovulate any day now, but it is hard to know.

You haven’t had any dietary changes recently, have you?

Good luck & keep up posted! Smile

@miss.skinner: After I went off birth control, the first month was just like I had been on the pill – my period came exactly the same day I would have started the sugar pill. Then my body changed, the next month it came two days late, and the month after, it came three days early. It takes awhile to straighten everything out.

according to your chart it does appear you will ovulate soon. I know it’s confusing but it gets easier!!

Let’s spin your thoughts around… a delayed ‘O’ might just give your hubby a chance to get back into town and actually UP your chance this month ๐Ÿ™‚

My chart is all over the place too – it can be frustrating… but you can also be thankful you are charting and do have some clue of what’s happening. Sometimes the temps only make sense when you look back on a completed month. Then it clicks that it really does look ‘normal’ afterall.
