Hey ladies, I need your help. Last month and now this month, I've gotten pos. OPK around the 18th day of my cycle, but no temp spike (BBT has got up a little, but nothing like months before - granted I was on Clomid when I got those temp spikes, no longer on Clomid now). Is it possible that I am still ovulating but without a significant temp spike? My FS told me to stop temping since temping tells you only when you have ovulated, but I just don't understand why I would get EWCM on the 15th and 16th day of my cycle, a positive OPK on the 18th day of my cycle, and no temp spike.

Has this happened to anyone?

What day are you on right now? My pattern goes positive OPK and last day of fertile CM, then the next day I am dry with a negative OPK, then the next day I have a temp rise. Do you have a link to your chart for us to look at?

Thank you for replying - I just added my chart to my signature. See how it's rising slowly? Is that my temp rise to signal I've ovulated??

Also, I see you live in Virginia. So do I! We're in Charlottesville. Where are you?

Ovulation isn't shown through your temps yet, but give it a few more days and hopefully you'll see a clear thermal shift. Good luck!

It'll happen I didn't get my temp spike until 2 days after my first + OPK. And some women don't a huge spike. If you do a search in FF's Chart Gallery and select "Slow Rise" in the drop-down menu, you'll see there are lots of women who don't get the immediate temp rise. Hope that helps

Positive OPKs are a sign that you body is gearing up to O. Some ladies have all the signals of getting ready to O then the cycle turns out to be annovulatory, i hope this is not your case. Hopefully a few more days of a slow rise will confirm O

What the previous poster said. A positive OPK only indicated a LH surge and an attempt to O, it's the confirmation of high temps that confirm O. Good luck.
