I started my first chart last week which was a bad idea from the start because AF was late. Part of me was just hoping to see that I had some sort of raised temp pattern, but right away after starting to chart AF showed up. The on the night of CD 3 of the new chart I came down with the flu. My temp that morning was within what seemed to be my normal range so I left it on the chart. On CD 4 I woke up with a temp of 100.1 so I marked it down and checked the box to discard it. My temp was still a degree above normal on CD 5 and I still felt pretty ill so again I marked it down and checked the box to discard it. Today I woke up feeling better and with a normal temperature so I just marked my temp normally.

My question is how much will this throw off my chart? I already know that it anticipates my cycle to be 38 days rather than the normal 29 because AF was late last month. Was this the correct way to handle illness related temperature fluctuations or should I just let them show?

Also, on a related note, my visit from AF was three days shorter than normal this month. Will that have any impact on my chart or can I just put that worry out of my head?

First off, I would mark that super high temp you had as an illness or fever temp, because it's SO high, and not normal for you--I'm assuming that's when you were sick?

Second, I would just keep plugging away at it. I remember several times I charted, I would get sick at the beginning of the cycle, and yes, I would O late, but at least I knew when I Od because I kept charting.

Good luck to you hon!

Yes, the higher temperatures were when I was trying to get rid of my fever. Thank you!
