bbt after ovulation?

Does your temp HAVE to go up to 98 degrees to mean you ovulated? Today mine was 97.60 which is up from the dip but i'mnot sure if i should worry that i didn't o.  i got a positve opk but i've heard you don't always o even if you get a opk...is that true? pleae look at my tracker! any thoughts/advice is appreciated!!
SSBD to everyone out there!

As long as it went up from the coverline .2-.4 degrees that is "supposed" to mean you did O. My RE MADE me stop temping though because she said it is the "most unreliable" way to see if you do O. Mine was going up and I would find out I didn't O at all and then one month it never went up and I did O according to blood work so try not to stress to much. I know it works for many but not for all. Good luck!

It should go up at least .4 degrees above your pre-ovulation temps, and should stay up for at least 3 days. So if your temps up to now were 97.2 or less, then it should mean you ovulated if it stays at 97.6 or higher for 3 days in a row. In a "good" cycle, the temp should stay high for 12-14 days before AF arrives (or a positive pregnancy test!). I found when I was temping that the time it was taken made a huge difference. Any time I slept in and it took it an hour or more past my regular time, it would be a higher temp. Good luck!

It is a little hard to tell b/c you have a few missing temps and then that one temp at 97.4 on CD 9. Sometimes you can have a single temp that goes up over the cover line in the 1st phase and can just throw it out when determining the coverline. Based on the temps that you have, it looks like your coverline would be between 97.3 and 97.4. The dip and increase definitely look like an ovulation pattern around CD 14 or 15. Sometimes you can get a secondary dip after O, like you had at CD18, I would see that on my chart sometimes, too. I would say if your temps stay at 97.6 or higher from here on out, it would look like an ovulatory chart to me. Good luck!

Sounds good! They say if they stay up for 18 days that usually means you are pregnant. You can usually get a + hpt before then though... I just got a BFP last month at 12 dpo, although many women don't get a positive test until 14 dpo or even a few days after that. Some women also say they can tell by their temps being higher than normal or by having a tri-phasic chart (a 2nd jump in temps during the luteal phase), but that has not been the case for me. I had a few cycles with higher than normal luteal temps and charts that looked like they might be triphasic but was not pregnant. Good luck!!

To make you feel better my normal temps pre-ovulation are somewhere around 95.8-96.6 and shift to over 97 when I ovulate.  Each person is different.  You should be fine!  This cycle that I got pregnant on my shift was at 97.05.
