I've been sick the past 5 days. Three of those days have been high temperatures during the day (100-101 degrees).

For those that have been doing this a long time, have you seen trends where when you are sick, your ovulations just seem to be out of whack?

I'm on CD11 right now.

Granted, I realize everyone is different, but I figure it would somewhat be the same with everyone.

Any thoughts?

Illness can definitely delay ovulation, but it can also mess with your temps (showing an ovulatory pattern, when it was really just the fever). Make sure to mark those ones as "disturbed" and you'll have to rely heavily on what your CM is telling you during the time that you're sick. Also make sure to make a note if you took any anti-histamines while sick, they can dry up your CM!

Wouldn't you know that as soon as I asked that question, I decided to go upstairs and read more of my TCOF book, and it was in the chapter I started? LOL.

Thanks Shawna for the answer though. I just now marked my sick days as disturbance. How does this effect my calculations, if at all.

LOL! Awesome. First of all, what kind of chart are you using? Paper? Ovusoft? Fertility Friend?

The "sick" temps might make your chart look ovulatory - like a thermal shift happened. When you mark temps as disturbed, it means you don't take them too seriously if a thermal shift emerges - ONLY IF the CM pattern is also ovulatory.

I didn't know about fertility friend until after I purchased the TCOF software, so it's under ovusoft. Had I known, I wouldn't have spent the money

It still seems so confusing. Just as I think I have it, I'm thrown for a loop again.

I think what you said makes sense. Thankfully, my temp went down this morning to my normal levels.

Here's my chart if you want to see what's going on: http://forums.ovusoft.com/chart.asp?id=superducky

I haven't totally completed today's though (CF or CP)

NO! That's good! Fertility Friend has really wonky interpretations and it's not designed for TTA. Ovusoft is designed for that, and it's interpretations are way more accurate. FF is always telling people they've ovulated when they haven't, and then what do you think happens? People trust it and think they're infertile, and BD accordingly....and then FF changes their O date to a later time. Not great when you're TTC, but way not cool when you're TTA. (Which is why it's always best to learn to interpret your chart on your own, and regard the various charting programs as helpful tools...but not rely on them alone.)

Your chart looks good. Those little x's just mean that Ovusoft won't be tricked by those temps into thinking you had a thermal shift, that's all.

All you have to see is my chart to know that FF can be confused sometimes. I really think that I O'd the 23rd and FF says I am 10 DPO. If I didn't know how to start interpreting my own chart, I wouldn't even know to question it's accuracy.
