Don't think I am ovulating - help!


I'm looking for a bit of advice from ladies that chart please.

This is my first month of tracking my temps and cm and I am very confused as to whether I have ovulated or not.

I ususally have a regular 28 day cycle, my last period started on 8th Nov so I am on cd17 and should have ovulated 3 days ago (according to my ticker!). I have had no rise in bbt and only a tiny bit of ewcm. Does this mean I haven't ovulated?

I have also heard that ovulating less than 10 days before your period is due means that you aren't able to conceive. Is this true? Very worried now.

Do you have a link to your chart that we can see? x

Think that's worked. Let me know if it hasn't!

As you can see, bbt all over the place like a bloody yo yo!

It's all over the place! BUT - you could have ov'd on cd14 and FF wouldn't have detected it yet - your temp has to go up 3 days in a row and then the crosshairs appear on the 4th day. That would fit in with your 28 day cycle.

Don't worry - just keep BDing until the crosshairs appear!

Re your temps - do you take your temp at the same time every day?

Ah, I see! I thought I needed a huge rise in one day!

I take temp at 7am every morning as soon as I wake up. Have a thermometer by my bed so I don't even have to get up.

Will continue with the bd for a little while longer.

Thank you so much!x

No probs

Hope FF confirms your ov date tomorrow. Mine was confirmed yesterday and I nearly cried with relief! I was convinced I wasn't working properly lol

Mrs Treacle maybe you ovulated on cd14, or maybe you haven't ovulated YET. EWCM after ovulation is not very common. I also have regular 28 day cycles and felt like just as you do when I started charting. I had very erratic BBT and FF pinpointed my ovulation on CD 18. It was like it would never come, but it did.
BTW, I changed my thermometer and now the temps are much more stable.

I'm also dealing with a crazy chart and no confirmed ovulation this month. I'm actually shocked at how erratic my temperatures have been....and no positives on my OPKs....I think I'm having an annovulatory cycle...which my gyn said is normal, but is ridiculously frustrating!

An annovulatory cycle? Does this mean a cycle where there is no ovulation? Goodness, there is so much about this business that I don't know about.

Fingers crossed for us all!

Yes, annovulatory cycle is when you don't ovulate...your body can gear up to ovulate and start producing some signs of it (ewcm, pains, etc) but not actually release an egg. I've had ewcm forever now but no confirmed ovulation.
