I am new to charting. I have been looking at other people chart here on JM and on FF. For some reason my chart seems very flat compared to everyone else's. I guess everyone is different but I was just curious is anyone else has a chart like this. It seems like all the other charts are extremely up and down.

Have a look....http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/2052e2

Hopefully everyone is having a happy May. Good luck to everyone

Terri

It does seem strange to have so many "three days in a row" where the temp is EXACTLY the same - but I think it can happen. I read that if it happens like many many days in a row that its a problem with the thermometer but it looks like you are having temp changes and you clearly have an ovulatory pattern it looks like so I think you are okay.

I wouldn't envy the wildly fluctuating charts (like mine) usually charts like mine are annovulatory as you can tell....very erractic temps are not good in the long I hear. I am no expert by any means but I think you can have a very sharp and drastic temp shift or a very moderate one after ovulation it just depends on your body......hope I helped....maybe some of the more experienced charters and fertility trackers can back me up if I'm on the right track!

flat temps like that are usually considered pretty good because it means your hormone levels are stable and rising properly, not being nutso like some of us, lol. It looks good to me!

I very often get "flat" temps as well. I've been told many times, it is a very good thing, so keep your chin up!

When I had my IUD almost ALL of my pre-ovulatory temps were 97.9 Occasionally I'd have one or two that were higher or lower, but most of the time it was 97.9 on the nose. I'm curious to see how that changes now that my IUD is out.

I think it looks rather good. If you check FF's chart gallery & just do a search with the key word flat temperatures you'll see other charts that look like your's or variations of your's. I agree with the others' who've said it's better to have temps that are more stable than rise & fall dramatically. You do have changes & a clear ovulation pattern so I wouldn't worry too much. You never know..next cycle could be different. It can change month to month. Good luck!

Well, even now that my IUD is out, I still have flat temps!

And I see you are still experiencing some flat temps, as well. It makes it easier to see when you ovulate!

LOL I thought my thermometer wasn't working at first too, but when I would take my temp at night it was higher. I've noticed that the only time my temp is off is when I don't get a good nights sleep. Which makes sense I guess. Everyone keeps saying it's a good thing... Hopefully we will see next month...

Good luck to everyone.
