Ovulation temp dip - clarification


can someone please clarify this for me - temp has dropped this morning as it normally does around ov, clearblue has smiley face at 1pm - I always read mixed reports about when you are due to ov....is it:

a. 24-48 hours after temp taken showing dip
b. presume temp dipped somehere overnight so theoretically 12-36 hours after temp taken showing dip
c. ov will occur that day

going by last months charts I presume I ov'd on the day of temp drop?

It's not really the dip, it's the post ovulation temps that count. Not everyone has an ovulation dip every month. Last month I got an ovulation dip 6 days before I actually ovulated. The dip is an estrogen surge which happens before you get a LH surge. Temping only confirms ovulation. Once ovulation happens, your progesterone rises causing your temperature to rise. Your temperatures rise after ovulation and drop when AF comes. So just because you are having a dip doesn't mean that you are ovulating.

Yup - I agree with the above, sometimes you can ov on the day of your first OPK, depends on the length of your hormone surge, & I've seen some people who ovulate 3-4 days after their first positive. It's all individual unfortunately, but if you as soon as you get your positive and a few days after you should have it covered.

Good luck

I never got a dip, have not heard that its common or something to look for...

It is the rise in temps that indicate ovulation has happened.

I would get the first positive opk, ovulate 2 days later, and temps would confirm that by being up the following day.

Its difficult to tell last month as you had fertile CM after ovulation & also sooo many days of +opks, were they definately all positive. I would actually say that ovulation could have happened up until CD 18 as there isn't really a clear shift. Its possible on CD 15 but I wouldn't expect that many +OPK's afterwards.

Having said that your pre ov temps are as high as your post ov temps last month which is unusual, but I can also see many open circles, have you been taking your temps later than usual this month?

You really need to take your temps at the same time each day, or at least adjust then for the time difference. I'd go with the OPK at the moment for the next few days and see what happens to your temps.

This months the temps are vaginally hence the difference. I struggle to take tps at the same time so they are adjusted using a calc, I just amend the time to make me aware that the temps are amended

ahhh ok that makes sense now, then I'd expect to see post ov temps about +.3 than last month.

& yeah i'm the same with the times, sometimes its just not practical. Keep us updated though, best of luck Ov will be in the next couple of days i think
