I have been to trying to concieve for a year now, with no success. Recently I started charting my BBT & I am confused with the drastic changes in my temp daily. Below is my temperature reading, please have a look & let me know whether I ovulated this cycle , if so when & whether implantation occured followed by ovulation. I am not in a medicated cycle this month.
I used to be regular, but now and then I used to get AF one or 2 days before or late. Yes even I am confused whether I ovulated or not. But a question to you as I am new to BBT charting, I have a sudden rise on temperature on day 14, does it mean I ovulated on day 13? On day 21, there is a deep dip im temperature I am assuming it's implantation but not sure.. What you feel? Finger's crossed Also there is no consistency in my temp it raise & fall most of the time, what does it mean?
I use mouth temping. Yes I do use OPK but it doesn't show +ve anytime this month but i had EWCM on day 13,14 which i considered as fertile days.
Unfortunately 1 temp doesn't indicate much at all. In order to confirm ovulation you need to see a sustained temp rise with 3 consecutive temperatures higher then the previous 6 temperatures. With the cm you are experiencing it seems like your body might be getting ready to O.
As for the erratic temps, do you temp at the same time every day after a minimum of 3 hours steady sleep? Also you could be a mouth breather (meaning you sleep with your mouth open) and this could cause your temps to be all over the place. I hope you are successful this month, but if you don't get your BFP and continue to BBT you may want to consider vaginal temping.
I just want to let you know that I took my Progesterone level test on Day 24 and to my surprise it was very low at 0.7. My doctor said probably I did not release any egg this month because it was around 21 last month. I am really frustrated hearing this, because when ever I checked my Progesterone level I had very good numbers with out being on any medication.
But now I am confused because BBT charting says I ovulated on Day 22 only, that being the scenario taking a Progesterone test on Day 24(2dpo) will show a false numbers only. Typically we need to wait for 7 days past ovulation to take Progesterone test which confirms ovulation.
Also I want to hear from you, if progesterone level is low does it delays my AF coming in. ???? My doctor said it might delay your period this time & if I am not getting my period anytime in coming 2 weeks, then probably I would need to call my nurse to take some medication to induce AF. Actually my AF is due today, still I didnt get it but I have continuous lower back ache for hours now which is never had before AF. Do you think I might be pregnant. Please share your experience.
Hope you are doing good. Still I didnt get my AF, even don't have any signs of getting it other than being so tired and sleepy. I am already 5 days late on my AF. THis is my first cycle being so late in getting my period. Since I didnt take BBT same time every day, I couldn' rely on BBT charting results. And as you said, If I ovulated late it Prog level results may be negative. I am planning to wait for few more days to take a pregnancy test & if nothing I need to call my doctor office for prometrium.
I wanna ask you, is it possible for me to be pregnant at this low prog level. I have read somewhere that prog level can be low & HCG can be high for few weeks and we always needs to take progesterone tablet to increase is it true? Pls pour your thoughts.
Your temps after cd21 seem to be more consistant, and if this is not an anovulatory cycle, I would say you probably O'd on CD21 and are now around 11DPO. Which also means that your progesterone test on the cd24 would have been too early for an accurate result.
Take a test in 2 -3 days if your AF doesn't show. Please keep us posted, hope to hear good news from you soon
I couldn't rely on BBT charting since I didnt take at same time everyday. But would be more happy what you said is true. Yes even I see some consistency in my temps after day21 so hoping that I didn't have anovulatory cycle this month.
Sure, I am planning to wait for few more days before I take a preg test because I am afraid of negative result. I will definitely keep you posted. I still keep my hopes high... Fingers crossed.. Lets wait & see..
