I seem to have had a temperature shift on my chart… however this does not match up with my cervical mucus. I had Watery and EWCW from cycle days 18-21. I had a temperature spike on cycle day 25. However from cycle day 22 and on I had non fertile cervical mucus.
What do you tend to trust more when charting? I have never had this happen before.

RedPandas: Fertile CM can be found pre-O and post-O, and it varies from woman to woman. Some women get EWCM days before they ovulate and some get it all the way until they ovulate, and even others get some EWCM during their LP. CM depends on many factors, how well hydrated you are, how good can you tell which kind of CM you have, etc. In other words, CM varies so much from cycle to cycle and woman to woman. I tend to trust my temp shift as a way to confirm ovulation, and there is no cycle I haven’t had a temp shift after ovulating. So BBT is the winner! Do you mind sharing your chart?

RedPandas: I trust my temp. I have irregular cycles so it is hard to predict when I will ovulate…so I use my CM as a sign if fertility…and to start BDing. I don’t get a lot of EWCM and only notice it if I check internally. As candy11 said I have noticed fertile CM before, during, and after ovulation. A clear temp shift is the best way to pinpoint ovulation.
