    Ok so I havent had a positive opk yet, but my chart shows a dip and two rises so far. I dont think I've ovulated yet (I was ill over the weekend which is why my chart is ridiculously high for a couple of temps) but I think FF will give me crosshairs if i have a steady temp rise

    My question, is is it possible to have a dip and three consecutive temps with a - opk?:wacko:

    It is possible but this caught me out last month. Had a temp shift and FF said I'd ovulated when I hadn't. :cry: Ov'd a week later but didn't realise until FF changed my crosshairs.

    Keep using OPKs and bd EO day until you are sure. Make sure you are limiting fluids and holding urine to get an accurate result. I've been advised not to test more than twice a day otherwise you either get inaccurate results or you get dehydrated. You need water for good CM.

    Good luck.

    Just looked at your chart. Did you do an OPK on CD9/10?

    Looking at your other charts don't think you will have ovulated yet. Although there was a dip it's not a big rise and it's very early still. Edit: I don't think FF will give you crosshairs as the temps are still lower than previous temps before you were ill. (sorry you were ill)

    Although I think I'm about to ovulate in cd12 and last month I ov'd cd27! Our bodies can be so confusing.

    Are you recently off the BCP?

    Edit: above

    Have I asked you about BCP before? SOrry if I have.

    I'm sorry about your chems. :hugs:

    You could try taking vitex? I use 20 drops of tincture in water every morning and fingers crossed it's helping sort my hormones out. Last cycle I ov'd CD27 as I said, started vitex this cycle and just got my +OPK on CD11.

    Good luck to you. Hope you get your sticky bean soon.

    It's a liquid form rather than tablet. They are purer and get into the system quicker.

    You can either take in a little water or you can add to tea.

    Do you have any good health stores near you? Or holland and Barrett should do it.

    Or you can buy online. If you get this one use 30 drops as it's 1:3 strength. 1:1 is stronger so you only need 20 drops. It tells you on the bottle which strength.

    You can take it all cycle but stop if you get a BFP! Ignore info on stopping at ovulation.

    Good luck. Hope that egg doesn't keep you waiting.


    Edit: changed the link

    Sorry. Went to work.

    No don't think you're ovulated yet. You can get EWCM for a few days before ovulation.

    Your cervix should get softer.

    Keep doing the OPKs twice a day. Is the second line getting darker? Or do you use DIgi's?

    It can take a while. Some ladies have a sudden surge other gradually build up over a few days until they get a positive. Have you looked at SMEP - Sperm Meets Egg Plan? Has good success rates.

    Good luck
