Hello! I'm new here, and new to charting as well. this is my first cycle to chart, and I started on CD12 because that's when the BBT came in the mail.

But, I have a question. For the last 4 days, my temps have been the exact same. 96.8 everyday. why would this happen?

also, I had some weird pain I have never felt before about an hour ago. Could this be ovulation pain? I have a backache as well.

Hi I am Carrie the host of the board.
Welcome.
As long as your themometer can give a different temp (try in the middle of the day) then the same temp is fine.

Not sure about the pain it could have been O or anything really. Do you check your CM at all? that can help a lot.

How far are you sticking the themometer in? I dont temp vaginally but it shouldnt be far enough in to make it hurt or cramp. if you have a next cycle you can temp orally again. It is not recommended to change methods mid cycle.

My temps do that too, they stay constant for days but I'm not sure why they do that. I found it odd when i first noticed it happening but now i realize I'd prefer it that way vs. being all over the place

Hi ! Welcome to the board ! I just starting temping Last month and just like you my temps were extremely low so i switched to temping vaginally this month. When i started temping this way i was trying to put the thermometer in too far and that was a bit uncomfortable but i never experienced any pain. I start trying to temp around between CD 7 and CD 11. Since this is your first month i def would check cm because along with charting its helpful. If you think the pain is ovulation you should make a note of it . Good luck !!!

I don't put it in very far. So IDK, I've been keeping an eye on CM, but haven't noticed or found anything.

although this morning, my temp went up to 97.1

The # of the temp isn't as important as the consistency of it and the shifting pattern. So you will want to look for a clear pattern of temps that are lower and then a shift to that which are higher. They may be all the same temp, may vary up and down, but at the end of the day there should be a clear low area (pre-O) and a clear high area (post-O) on your chart.

See that's what i don't know. It went up again, but all of the temps seem soo low. I'm going to ask about it when I see my Dr. next week. Maybe it's because I'm still new at to the whole charting thing. It's a lot to learn at first.
