Coming off the pill

Wed, 03-07-2012 - 10:08am

This is my first cycle off the pill. My temps seem to be all over the place and really high for this time in my cycle. I am temping vaginally as when I was using NFP when we were trying for our son, I was getting erratic temps orally. I'm thinking it's becuase I'm coming off the pill. Also several nights my son has woken me up and I don't know if that has messed with my temperature or not.

Hi, it's nice to "meet" you, and welcome back to the TTC world

Sue- Thanks for your input. My temps went even higher after AF so I got a new thermometer and I think that was my issue. I also felt ovulation pain yesterday so I think I am ovulating even though I don't see much CM. But I was like that when I was trying for my son. I still didn't have much by the 4th month and had to use pre seed in order to conceive him. I am hoping since I went off now and we're not TTC until June/July that hopefully I'll get a little more CM before we TTC. If not, then I'll use pre seed again.

Hopefully the new thermometer will work better than the old one!

Well I know I ovulated as I had ewcm that was very noticeable and a lot. My temps now seem kind of low but since I got a new thermometer I am going to let this cycle go and not worry. Before they seemed too high. I am dry now so they should be going up. They have a little but not as much as I would have thought. But I know after bcp your temps can be screwy as I read in TCOYF.

You'll also see a wonky cycle because you switched thermometers mid-cycle.
