does it mean anything? I entered my temp in today and it told me that I had a triphasic chart which could indicate pregnancy We did have sex the day before ovulation but we used a condom, and didn't have any problems with it. I'm 11 dpo, AF is due Sunday. My chart is in my siggy.

Well, even with perfect use condoms still have a failure rate. 3% have manufacturing flaws, plus there can be holes too small for you to notice. So with that timing, there's a chance of pregnancy. Give it a few more days and a test should be accurate.

A triphasic pattern isn't a guarantee, you can have it and not be pregnant. Or you can be pregnant and not have a triphasic pattern too. Keep us posted!

I know I am new to the board but...since you had a temp drop today could signify AF is on her way...but it is just one temp. Since you are TTA keep watching for your temp to stay on the low trend.

I did a google search on this and FF has a study on it:
Triphasic Pattern and Pregnancy

12% of pregnancy achived charts had a triphasic pattern
5% of NO pregnancy charts also had a triphasic pattern
(if I am reading the study right)

Sorry I couldn't tell you condoms are 100% reliable. It would be a lie. LOL

Ok so my temp went up even more today. I did get a new thermometer on Thursday, but would that make that big of a difference?

Oh yes! Definitely! A new thermometer can take readings slightly higher or lower than your old thermie, so switching mid cycle can definitely mess up your chart - making it look like a thermal shift or triphasic pattern when there actually isn't one! If you need to switch thermies, it's always best to do it at the beginning of a new cycle.

ok good to know! My old one was dying so I couldn't wait until a new cycle, but at least I switched after I knew I ovulated.
