I would say you aren’t taking your temperature at a steady enough time and that’s causing this crazy chart. You have more times you’ve strayed from the normal time than stuck to it so it’s likely that’s why you can’t tell what’s going on

krm1984 :  That’s a tough one.  With your temps taken too early and too late, it would be hard to predict what’s happening in your cycle.  There is the possiblity that you didn’t ovulate after your LH surge, as well, and you may have another LH surge before you ovulate.  I would keep temping and try your best to temp at the same time every day. I know that’s not possible for everyone.

Is temping the FIRST thing you do when you wake up? I was told to have my partner shove the thermometer in my mouth so I could avoid any unnecessary movement.

Also, are you temping after at least four hours of uninterrupted sleep?

Yes, an hour window is too muh variance. FF wants it to be no more than 30 minutes differene and it really should be as close to the exat same time as you can possibly make it. Set an alarm, role over and temp.

krm1984 :  ya ideally you want it to be the exact same time daily to have a more reliable chart. I use a bbt adjuster online if it’s off more than an hour.

krm1984 :  Also, for FF, your temps have to be within an hour.  So if your average is 5:30, temps shouldn’t be earlier than 5:05 or later than 5:55.

It’s been a long time since I temped but I could have a variance of up to 2 hours and I’d still be able to see a shift. This cycle may just be an off cycle. It’s kinda wait and see at this point. I think it took me a good 4-6 months of temping before I really felt like I knew what I was doing.

krm1984 :  It’s possible to have an LH surge and get a positive OPK but not ovulate. Basically your body tries and something makes it go, “hmmm, I’ll hold off.” I would honestly keep using your OPKs and maybe keep BDing every 2-3 days just in case!

I find that when I take my temp an hour earlier or later, it doesn’t make that big of a difference.
