So, I have just started charting myself, but I've been looking at other charts for...forever!
I know that your temp jumps up after you ovulate. Now, my question is...... If/when your temp does jump up like that..does that mean for absolute certain that you did ovulate????? Will your temp jump up like that if you didnt???? I guess I need to go look for some anovulatory charts too
heh, I should be the one to talk...but yeah your temp jumps up and stays up...if it is still swinging..there is no thermal shift..and ovulation can not be confirmed...Anovulatory's are a mess...with wild swinging..or no rise at all...
What I find weird about that is your temp has to go up to know that you O'd, but by then it's like almost too late. [/b]
Yup, that's why it's so important to monitor CM. Temps don't give you advance notice that ovulation is coming, they only confirm it after the fact. Cervical mucus is produced from the very moment your estrogen levels begin to rise, several days prior to ovulation. And this CM can keep sperm alive for up to 5 days inside the womans body, so CM is your most relevant sign if TTC.
