I really can not make heads or tails of my temps. This is my first month properly charting but they don't look like anything I've seen. I am also doing OPK, which has been neg the last three days....my chart (I think) is telling me I'm past my ov time and the OPK is telling me I'm not there yet. So confused here :(
Do you have a resource book like "taking charge of your fertility" that you're using? There's several different patterns that may occur: the gradual rise, the stair step, the fall-back rise, or the clear biphasic pattern. I personally experience the gradual rise and biphasic patterns from cycle to cycle. The first three I mentioned are sometimes hard to define the date of ovulation, therefore you should also note CM quality, lower abdomen twinges or pains, breast soreness, etc. If you have a rocky or up-n-down chart, then you may not have ovulated just yet. Keep up with charting. The first couple of months can be confusing, but it'll become second nature.
