My husband and I eloped in July and hadn’t been using birth control. However, for the last 3 months, we’ve been actively trying.
We have several factors against us. He’s 37, I’m 39. I had Graves Disease and several years back, I had RAI treatment to “kill” my thyroid, thus I am now on daily hormone replacement. I see an endocrinologist every 6 months. My levels are “normal” but I still fear there may be difficulty just based off of what’s typical for Graves Disease folks.
I’m new to charting and am still trying to figure the ins and outs of it all. October and November charts seemed pretty “normal” from what I’ve researched (obvious ovulation and phases) but this month was wacky.
Any thoughts for someone new to charting? This month there didn’t seem to be a clear ovulation date like in the past.
My apologies for the size.
December so far. Seems very weird to me.
October (missed a few days of temping since I was new to it and wasn’t used to remembering every morning)

@GFerg: OMG!! Okay sorry a little excited here, not even a month ago I was looking on the bee for someone with Graves’ disease who was TTC!!! And here you are, sorry I don’t have much insight in your chart as I am new at this as well! My story goes like this: diagnosed with Graves’ disease at age 12, had a total thyroidectomy in 2009 and am on synthroid and my levels have been normal for years. Dr. Says I should be good to have a baby but I am so anxious that we won’t get pregnant 🙁 I am 24 years old.

@GFerg: It does seem a little odd. May I ask what’s caused those 3 temps to be white? And have you been temping at about the same time every day all month? (Perhaps you started sleeping until an hour later around when you O’d and so the rise isn’t apparent?) I feel like you had a “slow rise” type O somewhere in there (maybe CD11 or CD12?) but it’s difficult to tell because you don’t have OPKs or CM or CP observations to supplement the temps.
