Hello everyone. Havent been here since my last chemical in July. August went well and then September threw me a curb ball I dont quite know how to catch
Got my period September 13. About 3 or 4 days after it stopped, which was around cd8, I started having O pains but didnt think much of it since I normally dont ovulate until cd12 to 14. Not long after that I started having breast tenderness, which I normally dont get until at least 3dpo. Well, I started doing opks as always and could not catch a surge. Tests got dark but never as dark as the control or darker, so I never logged it as positive. Is like my body kept trying to gear up for ovulation but didnt. Still, the board where I do my charting gave me crosshairs at cd14 maybe becuase my temp did go up and remained high for 3 days, Then at 4dpo it took a huge fall and came right back up and someone said it was a fallback rise. Then it went down again (like a second fallback?) at 6dpo and never got back up again... So basically Ive been having ver low temps throughout my luteal phase. To be exact, 8 temps over the coverline and two below. Today is 10dpo and I started spotting, had some mild cramping early in the day too but that is now gone. At first it was light pink, that only happend twice ( and it was barely tehre) Tongith is dark red and only a very littel bit. sorry for the Anyway. I have absolutely no pain, other than headache, and there is no real discharge I can call a period at least not yet.
Oh yes, also I have been having EWCM since about cd8, It is just now begining to subside.
So...is this an anovulatory cycle or is there something else going on? could it be just a case of really low progesteron and that is causing the low temps and headache? What about the spotting? is it or is it not af??
Thanks for any help you can give me!

Let me see if I can recall my last charted annovulatory cycle. It was much LONGER than nomal. I never got a shift in temps at all, never got a peak on m moniter, nothing. I also didnt get my normal spotting or af symptoms either until later. I knOw I am being zero help to you right now. I am just as confused as you are. It does sound like a fallback rise to me, but i am not sure about the lower temps after the fact. have you tested at all? With my second boy my temps fell and stayed low and i was freaking out until my friend told me to stop temping before i drove myself insane.

Oh thank you so much for your answer, it does help me a lot!
I don't know about the lower temps in luteal phase either. All I can
Think of is low progesterone may be causing it. I am still spotting.
It's quite red but I have no flow yet so I'm not marking it in
My chart or else ff will give me a new cycle and I don't Think
This is it yet. But, ever the poasaholic I did test just to see
What would happen and it was negative, not even an evap. I honestly
Don't expect anything this month but it would be great to get a surprise
