I have a quick question regarding my chart that I could use your insight on. This is only my second cycle charting, so I don’t have a history of other cycles to refer to to look at an established pattern.
FF is indicating that I may have ovulated on CD15. I, however, do not think I have ovulated yet. Last month was my first cycle off of BCP, so I think that my body is still flushing out all of the hormones. Last month, FF also thought I may have ovulated on CD15, but I switched thermometers to a more sensitive one about halfway through my cycle, so I didn’t really trust the results that cycle.
Based on my understanding, there should be a distict difference between pre-O and post-O temperatures. While temperatures will fluctuate and may cross the coverline a few times, there should be a distinct patterm before and after. To me, it seems that all of my temeratures are around the same, which leads me to believe that I am not ovualting yet.
Could you guys take a look at my chart and provide some insight? Do any of you have temps that are pretty similar pre and post O? My main concern is that I am just trying to guage if I am ovulating or not so that I can truly understand the patterms of my cycle.
Any help is appreciated!
(Hopefully the chart displays on here!)

The chart that is showing up isn’t the right chart – I’m seeing my chart actually. So we’d need to be able to see your chart to help out 🙂

@ethorn13: I was just about to say..wow your chart looks ALOT like mine. haha. If you click on ‘sharing’ and copy and paste your specific URL then we will be able to see your chart! 🙂
ETA: from the looks of it, you haven’t o’d yet. hmm i’d say you’re right about the BC messing with your cycle a bit. FX that everything goes back to normal for you soon 🙂

@ethorn13: I dont think you have O’ed yet. I think you are right. Your body may be still trying to regulate itself from being off the pill. I would suggest if you go another cycle like that, then maybe talking to your MD. GL

I don’t think you’ve ovulated yet either. Those look really similar to my pre-O temps though. I think it’s on its way. Keep BD-ing whenever you see fertile CM!! 🙂

i’ll echo everyone else and agree with you that you haven’t O’d yet. i wonder why FF is thinking you did?

It doesn’t look like it quite yet. FF is just trying its best since it has no previous cycles to compare to. Your open circles can make it hard to tell sometimes too if you’ve temped at a different time than normal. Everyone is different but for some people, a half hour or hour can make a difference in their temperature. Like @MrsRugbee said, just make sure to start gettin busy as soon as you see any fertile CM! 🙂 Happy charting!

I don’t see an O yet either 🙂

Those look like fairly low post-O temps, so I am voting NO O yet. FX you O soon!

I don’t think you have ovulated. There is no clear shift in the temperature and you have not gotten a single positive OPK. O maybe around the corner, but it’s hard to tell. Keep temping and testing. Keep us updated.

So, I had originally removed the two outliers on CD 11 and CD 12 because at the time they seemed way out of line with where they should have been and it was our anniversary weekend; thus, epic amounts of alcohol were consumed and I hadn’t drank in 2 months. So, I assumed the alcohol was throwing off my temps and discarded them. But, I added them back in today and now FF friends shows that I have not yet ovulated. If I discard them, FF still estimares my O day to be CD 15, which seems a stretch…so I will keep all the temps in for now.
