This month my temps have been very high during and after AF which is odd for me. I have not had a temp rise. I did another OPK yesterday to be sure and it was very negative. I have been so stressed from work this month. Could that actually prevent ovulation? Add a comment. A positive opk means your body is gearing up to release the egg. It is possible for the egg not to be released. What usually happens is your body will have another lh surge in a few days to try to release the egg again, resulting in a late cycle.
So keep testing, you might get another positive soon. And yes, stress can cause late ovulation. TrulyMadlyDeeply Original poster. Thanks momma!! I will keep testing. Weird to me since I've been so regular! I don't have an answer for you, but I am so sorry to hear you are so stressed. My last cycle I think that happened to me as I ovulated later than usual. Take care hun. Same with me this cycle! I usually ovulate late as it is but now I'm on cd 27!! Which cycle day are you on?
There has been a lot of movements at my job therefore creating a ton of changes and my new exec is kind of a dick. One our busiest months at work too. I was also a lil stressed because we weren't able to BD at the right times due to conflicting work schedules. Keeping my head up and going to focus on being healthy. How are you doing? Getting ready for iui in April? Thanks riya. Sorry to hear you are in the same boat.Charting is an effective way to monitor your fertility by taking your daily temperature and noting other cycle changes, such as increases in cervical mucus.
Your fertility is highest during the two days before ovulation and the day it occurs, according to Parenting Magazine. However, your BBT does not change until 12 to 24 hours after ovulation. To maintain an accurate chart, most experts recommend taking your BBT in the morning directly after waking and before getting out of bed. While some ladies will have a quick spike in their BBT shortly after ovulation, others will notice a gradual temperature shift that occurs over the course of several days.
This often means that it took longer than normal for progesterone levels to rise, or that the body responded slower than normal to rising progesterone levels.
After ovulation, the BBT usually rises between 0. The rise in temperature remains fairly level until about the time of menstruation, at which point the temperature drops. This is called a biphasic pattern and is a good indication that you ovulated. The body temperature normally reaches its lowest levels after all mental and muscular activity has ceased for several hours. This is why the best time to record this basal temperature is upon awakening.
Your temperature during the rest of the day is affected by your daily activities and will not be an accurate reflection of whether or not you are making progesterone. This means that it is possible — in retrospect — to know that the fertile period is over once there have been at least 3 consecutive days of the higher average temperature. This increase in BBT marks the time of ovulation, because it occurs immediately after ovulation. By looking at your BBT chart, you can help determine if you are ovulating and when you should time your intercourse for the best odds of conception.
You can also learn the average length of your menstrual cycle, whether your cycles are regular or irregular, and if you might be pregnant.
From Ovulation to Pregnancy: Learning the Fertility Signs!
Fertility awareness methods FAMs include the temperature method, cervical mucus method, and the calendar method to track fertility signs.
FAMs are approximately 76 to 88 percent effectiveaccording to Planned Pregnancy, meaning every 12 to 24 out of couples who use FAMs will fall pregnant each year. On average, your BBT will remain elevated for around 14 days. If you become pregnant during your cycle, you may notice that your BBT remains elevated for up to 18 days or more after ovulation.
If you have been charting for a while and your chart seems off, there may be a reason. Various factors can influence the results of your basal body temperature, making it more difficult to detect the time of ovulation.
The most common factors that affect BBT include fever, infections, colds, medications, alcohol, smoking, stress, travel, and breastfeeding.
Charting is an easy and effective way to identify changes in your cycle. By taking note of when your BBT rises and falls, you can help pinpoint ovulation and increase your odds of pregnancy.

What to Expect has thousands of open discussions happening each day. We work hard to share our most timely and active conversations with you. We keep them up because there are a ton of great conversations here and we believe you deserve to see them all. Anyone else have this issue? I am so confused! What's even more strange is that since last night I've had PMS signs already like a headache, backache, and very dull cramps mostly on the right side.
Could this just be an annovulatory cycle and AF is going to show early? I really think I O'd though around CD No LH at all. Before I got my pos earlier, there was a steady progression of LH. Sorry this post is so long, but anyone have a similar situation?? Or could someone check out my chart and see if they have any insight??
I would be so grateful! We sound identical!!! Exact same here I also got solid smiley on cd14 and all Wondfos were neg until midday cd15 which was yesterday! Wondfos still pos last night and thru this evening The only thing I can figure is we can possibly O 48hrs after first pos opk Now for me I shld have had a temp shift if I were going on when I got my solid smiley Thursday I have no idea!!!
This is my first month temping I have also heard it may take a few days to see a temp shift after O If u find anything out keeps posted :.Welcome to Mothering! OR Remember. OldPM - Thread Starter. Did you get pregnant with no thermal shift? Did you have other signs of ovulation?
Knittin', singin', cookin' Saranewly single, doting auntie. Etoile is offline. OldPM. I don't know if this is really an answer for you, but have you considered using OPKs along with checking your temps? If you have a subtle shift, it might help you identify it. Good luck! I had a very slow rise and thought for sure I had a short luteal phase.
Ovulation despite no temperature rise?
But turned out I got pregnant that month even when FF gave me a luteal phase of 7 days. So my temp did rise but only over a week. This is my first month temping so I don't want to spend the money jumping the gun.
My plan is to wait 3 months, see if I continue to have no temp shift but other timely ovulation signs, and if it continues try the OPK's. After temping for 2 years for tta, I always got a clear shift. But the month I got pregnant, I had so few signs including hardly any temp shift or cm that FF said I hadn't even ovulated.
The thing kicking me in the ribs right now will beg to differ. Originally Posted by Etoile. But am tracking CM. The more I research, it seems really rare to have no temp shift Chamomile Girl.
While it may be rare to have no temp shift it certainly happened to me.
I had beautiful perfect cycles in the months leading up to conception, and we always timed DTD just right The month I got pregnant we DTD really early in my cycle, no temp shift and I figured I just didn't O that month so I allowed myself to get really drunk to celebrate our anniversaryI am new here and this is my first cycle off the pill.
I am charting according to the NFP and so far everything made sense but the temperature. My temperature curve has been going up and down the whole time but my mucus signs were very consistent and the mucus was not clear and stretchy until day Also my cervix was closed and hard until day 13, 14, 15 and Now I though to myself, awesome I ovulated around day Now, our NFP advisor said that he doesn't think i ovulated.
Is that true? Is it really only linked to the temperature rising and staying high? Can you link your chart? It's a little bit different than NFP, but I'd think the temping is about the same. Anyway, if you're not charting online, you might sign up for Fertility Friend by clicking on my pirate ticker or anyone's below. Then you can link it to your siggy and we can actually see it. It's much easier than you having to explain. And yes, elevated temperatures are the only way to confirm O.
Since no one has pointed this out yet, I will tell you. You can occasionally have a fake out. You can have any type of CM at any point in your cycle. Yes, egg white CM is a sign of impending ovulation so yes it is considered fertile.
Usually you'll get it right before ovulation, hence fertile and a sign of impending ovulation. That being said, you can have all of the fertile signs, including a positive ovulation predictor, and still not ovulate. Sometimes around here we call that a fake-out. Your body is getting ready to ovulate and then doesn't for any number of reasons. Stress and illness are two examples of those.
From what it sounds shes only on cd16 I could be misreading that though so it could be a bit early to call it a fake out. I'm useless without a visual, but it could potentially be a fallback rise, so I'd give it a few more days of temping to be sure. As of now assume you did not O yet so you won't miss the window.
TTC since FET currently on hold. It's a BOY!Log in Sign up. Home Community Getting pregnant Getting pregnant. No temp rise after ovulation. Hi sorry for the long post just looking for some help I have irregularish cycles ranging from 28 to 66 days since I have been charting. I went to a doctor to get some help with this and she said that because my cycles weren't majorly irregular I must be ovulating and the BBT isn't a reliable indicator.
So I did a Day 21 progresterone blood test on 7 Aug. I never heard anything and finally emailed the clinic enquiring about the results and i just got a letter in the mail today saying the results were normal and indicate I ovulated in August. Today is CD34 and I normally have a luteal phase of about 12 days. So I am wondering- is it possible that I haven't ovulated even though the blood test results said I did? Some of my other cycles with no rise were not really long - days. I take my temp exact same time every morning before doing anything and I warm it up before and do all the right stuff so I'm sure they are accurate.
Also I find my CF is all over the place so I can't rely on that. I did OPKs during the cycle but I did miss a few days here and there so that's not much help either! We badly want a baby but I am wondering how I can keep track of it all if I can't rely on the temps Thanks for listening and any advice is much appreciated!!
Add a comment. Comments 3 Add a comment. I'm personally surprised that the Dr has said BBT isn't reliable! I actually wondered last cycle whether temps could be wrong, but from my google search it seemed a very accurate way to confirm ovulation. Progesterone, which rises after ovulation is what causes the temperature rise. So if you did ovulate, the progesterone would show a rise in temperature. This to me says either you are ovulating but your progesterone levels are low or you aren't ovulating.
Maybe its worth getting a second opinion? If the Dr doesn't want to take you seriously then it may be worth seeing someone else! Just wanted to update this in case it helps someone else later - I requested a copy of my test results from the doctor and found out that my progesterone level was 2.
So lesson learnt - don't just believe what you get told but make sure you view the results yourself!! I am now on CD48 so i guess its time to find a new doctor and get some proper answers! And you actually hadn't.If you are trying to get pregnant, you're likely aware that fertile cervical mucus and a sustained rise in temperature are two important signs that it's time.
But what does it mean if you have days of fertile cervical mucus but your temperature seems to be all over the place? What could be causing this and what are the next steps? Usually, fertile cervical mucus —a watery to raw egg-white like vaginal discharge—will precede ovulation. If you're charting your basal body temperatureand ovulation occurred, you'd expect to see a sustained temperature rise within a few days of seeing your most fertile cervical mucus.
+ OPK... No Ovulation?? *UPDATED* BFP!!!
If you don't seem to get a temperature rise at all, it could be for a few different reasons. Let's take a look at the possible explanations. If you have fertile cervical mucus but no rise in temperature, it could be that you're not ovulating. While fertile quality cervical mucus can warn you that ovulation is coming, so you can time sex for pregnancyit doesn't confirm that ovulation actually took place.
You can have fertile quality cervical mucus, but not ovulate. This is more likely the case if you also have irregular menstrual cycles.
Keep in mind that cervical mucus changes in preparation for ovulation. The purpose of increased cervical fluids is to create a vaginal environment friendlier to sperm. Blood flow is also increased to the pelvic area, and this stimulates increased sexual desire. This is nature's way of trying to get you to have sexual intercourse when you are most likely to conceive. So, if you're getting fertile cervical mucus, but not ovulating, you might want to think about it like your body is trying to ovulate, but not succeeding.
Normally, cervical mucus will become more abundant just before ovulation. Then, once an egg is released, the cervical fluids dry up. However, some women, such as those with polycystic ovarian syndrome or PCOSmay have days of fertile quality cervical mucus, followed by dryness, followed by another few days of cervical mucus. This is the body trying over and over again to ovulate. When charting your basal body temperature, you need to be meticulous about taking your temperature at about the same time every morning, before you get up and move around.
Detecting Ovulation With a Basal Body Temperature Chart
If your readings aren't accurate you may miss the rise in temperature that corresponds to fertile cervical mucus. This means taking your temperature at the exact same time on the weekends as you do during the week. No sleeping in late! It also means you must take your temperature before you get up to use the bathroom or move around much.
