@College:  I’d say the high temp was a fever so you could “disturb” it if you want and that you haven’t ovulated yet.  Getting sick can delay things.  Just keep charting!!

OMG, you could totally have stolen my post!  I have had the same thing happening, NO temperature rise!  It’s absoluteyly ridiculous and I cannot find a good explanation for it.  I did use an OPK which was positive, but then after one temperatuer spike day right after supposed ovulation, it came back down and stayed in the 97.0-97.6 range not ONCE going back up over the 98 degree highest temp. 

 

WHAT THE HECK? 

I’m going to continue charting and hope that this month is a fluke 🙁

Also, I just looked at your chart and it looks exactly like mine.  Amazing!

@College:  Agreed!  I was just thinking about it, that how could the OPK actually be positive but then the temperature stay so low after the predicted ovulation?  Baaaah! <scream of annoyance>

You’re body can show all the signs of gearing up for ovulation and then not actually ovulate due to illness, stress etc.  Same goes for the OPK, your LH surge is all about gearing up to ovulate but it’s not a guarantee that you will ovulate.

Just remember that when charting you’re looking for patterns of temperatures rather than isolated temps.

Good luck!

@Kemma:  Thanks!  Yes, I have definitely considered the possibility that this was an anovulatory cycle.  Considering it’s my first cycle charting I was hoping for something more regular 🙂  Fingers crossed this cycle will be fine and actually release an egg!  YAY!

@College:  Definitely keep charting. Some women get a secondary batch of fertile CM if ovulation takes place later in the cycle. 🙂

@College:  If you were taking cold meds, those can definitely delay ovulation, so I wouldn’t worry about the fact that you haven’t Oed yet!
