Do not worry about it being over cover line. My was too for about 5 days and then it dropped a little. There is nothing wrong with your BBT being over cover line while AF. Good luck...

You may find that this is your pattern.  Many women have a temp that stays up until AF is over.  For me, my temp ALWAYS dropped below the coverline at 15 DPO, which is when AF would come.  Everyone is different.

Ideally, your LP should be 14 days, but 11 should be OK.  Generally speaking, anything above 10 is considered OK.  You may want to talk to your GYN though.  Implantation can happen as late as 12 DPO, so this may hinder your chances a bit.  LPD is treatable though so don't worry too much.
