So, to give a little context, I have PCOS and don’t ovulate on my own. Been TTC with hubby just over a year and this month my RE put me on Letrozole.
For the first time ever, I had two days in a row of positive OPKS *and* a clear temp shift! Tomorrow morning I have a blood test to confirm, but I feel pretty confident I ovulated! So I’m excited about the medicine working no matter what.
Now, since this is my first time I’ve ever observed myself ovulating on my own, my question is… how can I estimate how many DPO I am? I know there is no way to know with 100% certainty, but I just am curious about what some of you more experienced cycle-trackers might think is a good estimate!
I use both FertilityFriend and Glow (phone apps) to try and track my cycles. FF says I ovulated CD17, and Glow says CD16, and I think what’s happening is that Glow is using my OPK data as the primary means of prediction while FF is using my BBT shift.
My OPK peak days were CD14 and CD15, but my temperature shift didn’t start until CD17 (a very small rise) followed by a very noticeable rise on CD18 (and it has since stayed high!).
Part of why I want to know is for pregnancy testing purposes 🙂 I wanna wait til at least 12DPO, maybe even 14. But with my tracking apps each giving me a different ovulation date, I am curious about which one makes sense to trust more.
Sorry if this sounds dumb haha Thanks, ladies! Below is a screenshot from my FF app showing my temps, if that helps! (And don’t mind the weird dip on CD7! I have a wearable tempterature tracker and I think it wasn’t tight enough that night. I tightened it after that. Plus, I only slept for four hours that night LOL so it’s a random outlier!)
