unsure of O date
10
Fri, 12-05-2008 - 9:35am

Hello

This is my second month of charting temps, and have been using both ff and ivillage. I am a little confused to my O date. I thought maybe cd29 (last month was 34:S). I thought I had ovulation pain on cd28.

Any feed back would be appreciated!

The iVFP link worked. The FF link isn't the correct link. But, that's okay. :o) I only need to see the data once.

Judging based solely on temps, I'd put O at CD32. If you add CM to the mix, it gets a little less clear because CM usually starts drying up pretty fast as soon as you O, but I'd still put O somewhere between CD's 30-32.

HTH!

Thanks. That is a little later than I thought it was. FF says CD 31. I thought it was earlier due to the ovulation pain, and the day I saw EWCM (I don't see EWCM for very long).

While O pains can help as an added sign, they are also pretty unreliable for exact timing. They can happen before, during, or even after O and it can vary from one cycle to the next.

*Usually* ovulation happens that day after peak CM. So, on your chart, that would be CD30. When judging by temps alone, O is usually placed on the last day where temps are below coverline, so that would be CD 32. Since the two don't line up perfectly, we're left to take our best guess. Even when the signs do line up perfectly, we still can't be 100% sure that O happened that day. There's always a little bit of leeway one way or the other.

My guess is that you probably O'd around CD30, but it just took a couple of days for your temps to get in gear and rise up above the coverline. We just can't say for sure.

What it all comes down to, though, is that you should assume you are still fertile until your CM has been drying up for four days AND you have three temps above your coverline, because you just never know.

Yes, I am really hoping, but not holding my breath! Last month my lp was only 10 days, so I am hoping that I dont have lp defect or something. I will be 28 this year, and we are trying to have our first baby. It would be so nice to conceive and find out next friday on my birthday!!

Another quick question (sorry for all the questions :S) Does the lp usually remain the same # of days, or can it fluctuate?

Don't be sorry for asking lots of questions. :o) That's why this board is here.

LP is usually pretty consistent from one cycle to the next for an individual woman under normal circumstances. It can fluctuate by a couple days here and there, though. In special circumstances, it will fluctuate more. For instance, as a woman is regaining her fertility after childbirth, or when coming off of birth control, the LP can vary much more than it would under normal circumstances.

LP length is usually pretty consistent, tho you might see minor fluctuations.

Thanks!...I wasnt sure, because my cycle seems wonky since i stopped the pill in March.

Yeah, i think the one on ff is the right one too....which means tomorrow will be 10 dpo, and last month my lp was 10 days, so hopefully i can test and get a bfp on the weekend :)
