First off, was your period normal flow?  or was it lighter than normal?  Secondly,  do you have the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility?  See if your graph looks like any of them on pgs 155-158 b/c that’s what it sounds like to me.

I can think of three reasons why this is happening:

1. You’re pregnant.  If your period was lighter than normal or was spotty, it could be implantation bleeding.  Additionally, prolonged high temperatures are an indication of pregnancy.  Sometimes women continue charting their temperatures b/c a massive drop to pre-ovulatory temperatures indicates a miscarriage.

2. Before your period, you didn’t actually ovulate and are in a cycle of anovulation. A lot of women who do not ovulate will have cycles of varying temperatures.

3.  Are you stressed out? Have you taken your temperature at the same time everyday before getting out of bed? Did you drink the night before the higher temperatures?  Did you get normal amount of rest on the nights of the higher temperatures?  Are you recovering from a cold?  I ask these things b/c they can affect your temperature and/or ovulation.
