Wow, that is a significant drop! But it's still too early to say anything about it with any certainty since you haven't been temping for a couple of cycles so you can't really see a pattern yet.

I have the same problem, though; I only started temping last cycle. It is kind of exciting to actually 'see' the body and hormones at work. Last cycle I didn't even have a clear drop in temperature, but I read that not all women experience that anyway. Usually after O there is supposed to be a drastic increase in BBT due to progesterone, but I had just a steady rise... I was able to predict when AF would knock on the door, that was kind of awesome.

As for the grapefruit juice (not GRAPE juice LOL ), I know lots of people really dislike the taste so I read somewhere on here that it can increase fertile CM and women were trying it for that reason but really hating it haha

Editing to say that grape juice actually exists! I always drank it when I was little and my parents were drinking wine...

I also hate grapefruit juice...I am kinda a super-taster (really good at distinguishing tastes, reaaaaaaaaaaallly hating anything bitter, can taste that weird substance that some people can't taste, sensitive to anything that causes an aftertaste etc) and since grapefruit is a bitter/sour fruit I just can't do it. I can eat grapefruit, but only after putting like 3 tbsp of sugar on top of it, and even then I just like the grapefruit flavoured sugar lol.

Anyway, long intro into what I was going to say...don't use grapefruit juice to take any medication or even your prenatal. The enzymes in it can interfere with absorption rates.

CD4, AF should be vacating tomorrow, and I don't think I'm due to ovulate for another like...2-3 weeks even, so it doesn't matter that my hubby is gone this weekend. Other than that bed will be very cold without him.
