I think I have ovulated but no BBT rise ....?


I had a positive OPK test on Sat and Sun and it has now gone negative again. I have had EWCM since Friday and still have. However, there is no rise in my BBT yet? I was assuming I had ovulated based on the OPK and EWCM, but when I tested my BBT this morning it was still low, but my OPK is showing negative now. How can that be (and should I still be )?

Thanks !

Temp rise is the only thing that confirms O had actually happened, you can still get +ve OPK's and EWCM with O'ing. Keep BD'ing until you see the temp rise as you haven't O'd yet.

Me too.. no temp rise, opk started going positive then nothing again today, ewcm friday and sat but gone now! Its so confusing. I am stuck out in the middle of nowhere (i.e. not even mobile phone signal), just so that I can be with my oh so that we can get some bd in (he works here at the moment)...I want to go home cos its boring here, but think I need to stay to get that in me. FF reckons I will ov on Thursday but I don't think I can wait here that long!

I have just found this on fertilityfriend:

You have recorded a positive OPK result on your chart. Ovulation Prediction Kits detect a surge of LH (luteinizing hormone) in your urine. This is last hormone to peak before ovulation. In most cases, you can expect to ovulate the day following your positive OPK result. You may, however, ovulate later the same day, or the following day.

To maximize your conception chances, keep considering yourself as fertile for several days after seeing a positive OPK result. If you are also checking your temperature and cervical fluid, consider yourself fertile until you also see a sustained thermal shift and cervical fluid has dried up.

OPKs tell you that ovulation is likely imminent and you are most fertile. In most cases, ovulation soon follows after a positive OPK result. A positive OPK result, however, does not indicate ovulation with certainty, nor does it pinpoint your ovulation day to within a narrow timeframe. Only your temperature sign which reflects a rise of progesterone after ovulation, will confirm and pinpoint ovulation for you.


So it looks like I haven't ovulated yet and that the a +OPK is only a sign that ovulation is about to take place, not that it is ACTUALLY taking place.

Here is my chart:

OPKs detect a surge in the leutenizing hormone, which normally occurs just before ovulating. However, it is possible to have that surge and not ovulate - your body gets geared up to ovulate but the egg doesn't quite make it out, ifyou see what I mean.

A consistent rise in BBT is a more reliable method of telling whether you've ovulated or not. If your BBT hasn't risen, it may be that either you haven't ovulated yet, or that you're having an annovulatory cycle. Don't lose hope though, it may simply be that you're ovulating later than usual. What cycle day are you on?

I'm on CD21. My cycles are irregular tho since coming off the pill in December - anything between 28 and 37 days. I really hope I am ovulating - don't want to have gone to all this effort for nothing this month!

I know exactly how you feel. I'm on CD20 and had gradually darkening lines on my OPKs right up to yesterday, when the line suddenly faded again. But no BBT rise yesterday or today. I'm praying for a rise tomorrow, otherwise I guess this is an annovulatory cycle and I have to go through the waiting for AF to just arrive already all over again. It's a frustrating process.

Don't give up or stop testing- the OPK's might get darker as your body can try to gear up to ovulate again after a failed attempt.
