OK, to start with, we are not supposed to be trying this month. All the BD that we had up until CD18 was using protection. After a nice clear ovulation I gave hubby the all clear to dive without a swimsuit, so to speak. The first thing that I noted was that my temp jumped up again on CD18 (this would be a more usual ovulation time for me), which also happens to be the day that we got jiggy without the condoms twice.

Then I get to yesterday, expecting my temp to drop right off ready for expected period today but my temp is still high. In fact 36.9 is the highest temp that I have recorded on a chart (even my pregnancy one) so I was pretty surprised, but not completely shocked as I have occasionally still had high temps on the day before my period was due.

Well, when I was at lunch with Alice yesterday (celebrating my birthday the day before) I got my period! A first as I have never had my period whilst my temp is still high! So I get home and log it into FF, ready for moving on to my next cycle.

Which brings us to today. I wake up, take my temp and it is still 36.9. How is this on the second day of my period? Then I go to the toilet to change my tampon, but there is no sign of AF anymore! Now I have never had high temps during my period so I have re-logged yesterdays bleeding as spotting.

So question? What do you think is going on with my chart? Is the ovulation day correct or do you think that there is a possibility that I could have OD'd later in the cycle?

12 days is the longest my luteal phase has ever been so I expect to see a big ole dive tomorrow if the current interpretation is correct. By the way, it feels like AF is coming so I don't expect that I am pregnant, just confused by what is going on!

Just wondering if I have been a bit daft having unprotected BD on my first cycle after the Mirena when my chart could be a bit funny.

Hmm.. I think I would agree with FF on your O date. That's a pretty clear temp shift. Maybe the spotting you had was just a fluke as your body gets used to the IUD being gone.

I see AF came your way this weekend. I'm sorry! I hope this cycle works out better for you than last cycle!

Good luck!
