I am so bad at understanding charting too but my guess would be CD11 or 12! Just a guess though!
Have you had normal cycles before this? I had normal cycles for months then when we decided to ttc my body went crazy and I didn’t O until cd36 and 40something the next month. It’s really tough to say when you o’d because of the inconsistenty in temping. Sorry!
@oceanbee59: How long are you cycles usually? You missed kind of a critical part for temping, you look like you O’ed anywhere from CD12 to CD17. lol. Kinda big window and when O is most likely! My best guess is that you are in your luteal phase now but how many DPO you are there would be no way of knowing.
And it looks like you have an inconsistent waking time….? For charting to be effective, you should really try to temp at the same time every day, like with 10 minutes.
Either way, GL!!!
@ChuckNorris: Thanks!! They’ve been 28 days and 32 after BCP. I’m actually confused about waking time, because I was wondering if it was the time of day that was important, or the number of hours since I had fallen asleep that was important. I would imagine that hours of sleep controls body temperature more-so than just the time of day, but I really have no idea. Yeah we aren’t TTC just yet, so it’s ok for me not to know O day that well. And all the days appear as off times because the first few days I was finishing up a different job so I had to switch my wake-up time.
I was most interested to see if anyone thought that I did ovulate at all, not necessarily pinpointing a day for O. I wasn’t sure if it looked like a two-part graph enough or not.
Thanks everyone for the help!
@oceanbee59: yup, looks like a two-part (or biphasic) graph to me 🙂 I *think* time of day is most important, or at least that’s what I’ve read everywhere else, and seems to work for me 🙂 but you’re getting a clear enough pattern anyway, especially if you’re not TTC yet 🙂
@oceanbee59: I agree with @hamikay: it def looks biphasic and time of day trumps the # of hours slept. Your body goes through a cycle of temperatures throughout the day anyway [i.e. if you temped later than usual the last few days, your temps would be artificially higher], so you are trying to compare the difference in those times throughout the days =) # of hours slept somewhat effects it, but I find that my temps are pretty consistent if I just get 2 solid hours of sleep before my temping time. GL!!! =) An inconsistent waking time can cause a chart to look anovulatory even if it’s not. But yours doesn’t look anov! =)
