First cycle charting...

Hi ladies...I thought I would come to the experts on this one. I am not very hopeful about this cycle as I am starting to feel bloated and crampy like I do a day or two before AF starts...however I was just curious on your opinions of my chart. We have been TTC for 11 cycles and this is my first time charting...I had originally thought from some cramping and CM signals that I was Oing around CD 12-14...however as you can see on my chart, I O'ed on CD 16 this cycle. I found that odd since my cycles are usually only 26-27 days long...would this be a problem to have an 11 day LP? Also...my temps are quite low, even after O, they never get up too high...could this be some kind of thyroid issue, or do your temps not rise much at all with thyroid problems? I plan on going to the doctor in the next couple of weeks and ask her all of this, but I thought I would get your opinions and experiences first.

Thank you!!

Blessings,
Kelly

I'm not an "expert" as this is my second cycle charting, but my temps are also quite low. I haven't had my thyroid checked, but I am on progesterone. Progesterone is supposed to raise your temps after O. I'm sure some of the other ladies will have some advice for you as well :) Good luck!

If you don't mind me asking, why are you on progesterone?

Your post-O temps aren't too bad...they're at least within normal limits (for the most part) for average post-O temps.

I don't mind at all :) I had mentioned to my doc 2 or 3 months ago that we were having trouble TTC this time around. We conceived DS after 1 cycle of coming off of the nuva ring. It had been about 6 "official" months at the time of my discussion with my OB. He sent me for 2 rounds of bloodwork, but our insurance got messed up and I didn't get to go for the second round that the "bulk" of the tests. Anyway, my progesterone came back at 4.9, where it's supposed to be around 15. This is our second cycle of progesterone, although I am thinking I messed up by not stopping when AF showed and restarting after O. At any rate, it can't hurt to get some blood drawn to see where you stand.
