How long after Temp Drop does period start
Hello again!  This is my first month charting.  I dropped from 97.9 to 97.2 this morning.  Do most of you start first thing in the morning the day of the temp drop?  Or can it come later that day?  or later the next day?  Just wondering...cause I had the temp drop but I don't "feel" my period coming...kind of bothers me.

It's one of those things that there is no clear answer to.
Last month, I had temps of 98.0--98.2 after ovulating. Then one morning it was 97.9--not a huge dip,---but my period started a couple hours later. My temp didn't go down significantly until the day after my period started.
So it's hard to say. Only time wil tell! I got on the fertilityfriend website and looked at other ladies charts. There were charts with all kinds of variants. Even some ladies with low temps that were surprised a few days later with a BFP.

This is one of the things I hate most while TTC---nothing is clear. I can't rely on any signs or symptoms FOR SURE.
Drives me nuts.

Good luck!!!

Thanks that helps me a lot.  I actually am rooting for my period this cycle...I had a procedure done so I need my period to start in order to start a new cycle...so I am kind of waiting for it to get here.  I was upset it didn't or hasn't started today...so you are saying that is will most likely start tommorrow then and that is normal...you sometimes start the day after the drop?

Yeah... I usually start the day after the temperature dip. Once in a great while it takes 2 days.
