@terisa2012:  could it be a Corpus Lutem dip?

 Q. Temperature Dip at 5DPO?

A. This is your Corpus Luteum dip. This is NOT at all related to an implantation dip. You will see this dip happen at (some women) between 2- to 5 days passed ovulation. This is when your estrogen dips (drops) and your Corpus Luteum takes over produce more progesterone. Notice how after the dip your temp will shoot back up?

I second what @FreckledFox:  said. It seems like the fall-back has been hitting all the charters really hard this month. My last cycle I had a HUGE fall-back and a couple of bees on the Charters thread have had these too so far (they’re in their TWW right now). Know that it’s very possible that you did O & the temps are just dropping a little because of the CL. The coverline is a really arbitrary line so at the end it doesn’t mean anything for a couple of days of LP as long as the trend is above.

Hi lady.  I undertand your frustrations, my cycle is super inconsistent too.  It’s possible that you haven’t yet O’d. Two cycles ago, I had a rise in temps making me think I O’d, then a drop and then I really O’d.  FX something conclusive happens for you in the next couple of days so you know. Did you get any other symptoms on  CD20 aside from the ewcm?  Do you feel like you O’d?  Good luck love.

@terisa2012:  Just popping in to say I *think* you O’d, too and you’re hopefully just experiencing a fallback rise.  And feel free to join us in the charters thread!  Some people pop in here and there and some are there all day, every day – either is fine. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you did O, but I’ve had it happen more then once that my body has geared up and not followed through with ovulation until later.

Typically with a fallback rise, the temperature should return to higher levels the next day. Here you had three days of dropping temps before it shot back up. You also are missing a lot of temps before possible O, so FF can’t set your coverline accurately. If the temps on CD13-15 were higher than 97.1, then your coverline would be higher too, and FF would likely have taken O away with too many dips below the coverline. The high temps on CD21 and CD22 could be related to your travels. Did you stay up extra late, drink, sleep poorly, or do anything else out of the ordinary?

You won’t know for sure until you see what your temps do over the next few days. It could be that you O’d on CD 20, but the three days of decreasing temps makes be think it’s more likely you O’d on CD25, but you’ll need more temps to confirm. I’d keep having sex just in case. This might be one of those cycles where you have to wait until your LP is finished to see where you O’d.

@terisa2012:  I’ve never had O spotting, but I think it’s normal for some women. I also spot during my LP, starting on 9 or 10DPO. It’s no fun! I hope you have good luck this cycle!
