CP and temps out of whack?
Fri, 09-07-2012 - 9:55am

I seriously think my body is laughing hysterically at me now because I can't figure out what is going on this cycle! :smileyhappy:

LIke I mentioned before, end of last month I took a steroid which my doc said could affect my menstrual cycle (since it was only for a short period I doubt it will mess with for much longer?!)

My CM was definitely EWCM yesterday and my DH has always been my trusty cervical position checker (God love him!).  When he first started doing it for me he was like "so that is why it feels different in there sometimes!" LOL LIGHTBULB moment!

Last night he said "wow it is way higher, way softer and has an opening".  So we BDd.  This morning (and the mornings since Tuesday) my temp is high- like 97.9-98.17 high.  I know I am waking up a couple of times each night and I have had wine each night, too.  Maybe that is why it is so high?  Anyway, he checked for me again (he is a saint!) and it was the same exact HSO as last night.

What should I do?  Ack!

Wine can definitely artificially elevate your temps...as can interrupted sleep.  If you have ewcm and a HSO cervix, then it's probable that you didn't O.  Definitely keep up the BD.  I'm sure your dh will object to that plan :smileywink:
