I decided to try temping this cycle.

Hmmm...I'd just keep the first temp, even of it is a bit low. You're right, it could just be a pre-o dip. Maybe it was cooler in your room or maybe you slept with your mouth open? I wouldn't sweat it. Keep up with your eod bd & I'll send all sorts of baby vibes your way. Once your temp jumps, it should be really noticeable. Good luck :)

Now I'm really confused. Still no +opk which is really strange for me on day 15. I usually have one by now.

Very strange -especially with the lack of cm too. Seems like your hormones are just messing with you :( Fx'd they smarten up soon & your body gets back on track! Have you ever not gotten a positive opk?

I noticed a little more cm last night, not much though. And no, I've never not gotten a +opk. I just took another one (digital), negative. When I popped the stick out the test line was barely half the darkness of the control line. I'll take another test tonight. This is really frustrating. This has never happened?!

I forgot to add, I think I had another cyst the end of last week/beginning of this week. Could that delay O?

Interesting about the possible cyst. I wonder if there is a link b/w cysts & delayed O? I guess anything is possible. Do you know if your previous cysts were the follicular cysts that can form after releasing an egg? I would *guess* (and that's all this is!!) that if you were releasing an egg from the same ovary that had the hypothetical follicular cyst that it could possibly delay O & I think it's reasonable to assume it could affect hormones too.

Either way, I hope your body smartens up!

Yes, it usually was (I think). All I know is for some reason they get very painful. It's always my right side that causes issue. I can feel it in my side/groin area, backache and headaches (hormones!).

Since its my first month I'm not exactly sure, but I think if my temp stays up tomorrow FF will make O two days ago?? I never had a +opk and I've barely had any cm so it doesn't make sense. I'm supposed to start my progesterone on day 18, but I don't know what the h*ll is going on. I guess ill keep taking opks to see if anything changes. I took one this morning and it actually seemed lighter than yesterday. It was FMU though, so ill try again when I get home from work. So frustrating.

Ugh :( Sorry this has been so frustrating for you.

I'm not sure if FF will give you O with another high temp because the temps before that dip are kinda high. Plus, there's a chance that dip is an *off* temp.
You can always play around & insert fake temps to see if FF will give you crosshairs. If you did O then, I guess it's possible your hormone levels could still be wonky & didn't register a positive opk.

If it were me, I wouldn't assume O yet & keep dtd. Hopefully it's just a weird month & you're just O'ing late & will see a pos opk soon & a huge temp jump so there'll be no doubt! I'd hold off with the progesterone -if you take it before you've O'd, then your body probably won't be able to release the egg. You're best to wait a few extra days to be safe -delaying the P won't harm your chances.

Hey Brew, sorry your O is being so confusing this month. LIke Angela said I wouldn't worry too much about delaying the progesterone. My RE has you start taking it 3 days after O. So it's not like you have to start taking it the day after O. Anyway, fingers crossed you get that pos opk soon!

Thanks ladies. I think that is my plan. I just know I haven't O'd yet. I've been in the game long enough and know my body well enough to know that I usually have more signs than this. Plus the fact that I've never NOT gotten a +opk. It just doesn't add up that I actually O'd. It does scare me a little bit...my body has let me down so much the last year that I'm almost afraid to trust it. But, we'll just keep BD'ing EOD and hope that I get a +opk SOON. I'm going to hold off on the progesterone for now, too.

It's so ironic that when I talked to my doc last month about starting the supplements we talked about my cycle and how I'm pretty regular (usually 28-31 days, one time it was 32) and that I would be totally fine starting the supplements on CD18. Go figure this would happen now!
