Yes, progesterone is what cause your temperature to go up, so a supplement could affect your regular temps. I would just make a note of it on your chart :-)

Progesterone increases the BBT and taking supplements does affect the temps. Any online O tracker will have provision to note this and you should include this information.

The natural rise is caused by progesterone and the supplements probably helped it go up even further. Since you are past ovulation, it won't cloud as to when o was. It's a good thing they don't rx progesterone until after o or it would really cause confusion on bbt charts. Btw, your chart is looking really good!
