tommywantwingy :  It usually takes 3 days of high temps to confirm that you ovulated. If you did, it’s hard to tell right now. I know for me, some cycles are more obvious than others.

Many reviews I’ve read say that fertility friend is more accurate. Maybe try putting your info into that app as well and see what it tells you?

tommywantwingy :  hmm… that’s tricky. You may have ovulated early on in your cycle but because you don’t have enough pre-O temps during AF time, FF won’t give you CHs- it’s hard to say. CD 4 or 5 seems awfully early for O though, I’m not sure if it’s possible or not. Keep up the good work with temping though. Do you usually spot so much during a cycle? That seems a bit unusual to me.

My rule of thumb, when interpreting *any* data, is you should be able to see the pattern even if you remove any one point.  I’d say with yours if you remove CD15 there’s no way you’d think you ovulated, so no.. I don’t think you’re there yet.

I’m sorry about all the spotting!  That sounds really rough.

Doesn’t look like you have ovulated yet. It’s hard to say whether you ovulated very early in your cycle as there’s not much data previous to these high temps. Did you have any sickness or drink alcohol which may have raised your temps on these early days?

You may be on your way to confirming ovulation within the next few days, given your cervical mucus notes. EW is a good sign you’re a few days away from OV.

You need to have a temp shift (where a temperature reading is higher than the previous 6) which then stays high for at least 3 days. Cycle day 18 is higher than your previous 6, so you need 2 more days of data to be able to confirm ovulation.

I do not think you have ovulated yet. TCOYF rules say that ovulation can be confirmed by a spike in temps that are at least .2 degrees or higher from the previous 6 temperatures (and are sustained over a 3 day period before confirming ovulation). There is not an obvious spike in your temps at this point. Keep doing what you’re doing!

tommywantwingy :  Aww I’m sorry, that would be so frustrating! Did the doctor say what may be causing the spotting? I hope it stops once and for all soon!

tommywantwingy :  Interesting, has she does any bloodwork to check your hormone levels? Regulating or not, 6-7 months of experiencing mid-cycle spotting seems abnormal to me but then again I’m not a doctor. Is this lady an OBGYN or just a regular family doc? I can’t remember, is this your first cycle temping? How long have your cycles typically been on average after stopping BCP?
