Pinky gave you a lot of good info so I won't repeat, but just wanted to say to keep on testing...don't give up!! And to your question about the drop...I just checked my chart and mine didn't drop even by .1, so no it's not noticible bc it had been lower than that a few days earlier, so don't worry if you don't see an ovulation dip (its so unnoticible by most women, and doctors for that matter, that it's not usually used as an ovuation sign). So like Pinky says, just keep looking for that rise that stays up there. Good luck
I have slightly longer cycles and ovulate later, so I think if you're irregular you and especially if your cycles tend to be on the long side you are very likely to ovulate later. The luteal phase (last part of you cycle after ovulation) will always be the same give or take a day or so, but the beginning can vary from month to month and factors such as stress and worry can delay ovulation, therefore making periods late. I would continue testing as previously advised but also watch out for changes in cm- if you notice increased or ewcm you could test more than once a day incase you have a short surge. Let us know how you get on and try not to feel too discouraged, a lot of people have irregular cycles and still get pregnant. If your cycles are very infrequent though I would go to your gp xx
It really helps to give me hope when you all give me advice.
I hope that I ovulate in the next few days or so. I dont want a short luteal phrase. But I just hope that i ovulate at all. I feel that ive been very chilled this cycle, but starting to worry as thought i would of O'ed by now .
I will keep temping and see if it goes up. Just got to keep BDing!
