Hi Ladies

In my 2nd month of charting (after I quit the pill) and I am still having some trouble knowing whether or whether not I actually ovulated. On my first month I had a definite temp shift and a positive OPK on day 24 and then my period came 13 days later. This month was a bit more confusing, with temps being a bit out of wack- i do think I ovulated on day 27 this time, since I have a temp spike and it has been sustained for 13 days (and counting). Thing is, how do i KNOW I ovulated...is temp shift a sure thing??

Thank you so much!!!

Hey, I think 3 days at least of a temp rise confirms ovulation. Then when the temps drop you know your period is coming or if they don't hold up for 3 days…you haven't O'd yet.
