    Liz your temps don't look like post ov temps anymore... now you can see the whole cycle together there really isn't much of a temp shift.

    Have you got the letter in the mail yet?

    I hope you and your OH are well.

    I have to agree with Betheney Liz. Looking at your chart, it doesn't look like you've O'd yet, even though you got a positive OPK.

    This is a very strange cycle for you! Have you ever had a cycle this long before?

    I's be asking your doctor when you get insurance for some hormone tests to rule out PCOS.

    Sorry to everyone that is on other threads that I post in, but this will be the same info repeated over.

    I managed to get a doctor appointment today due to my thyroid playing up. I have had pain from a cyst for 4 days now. I saw a lovely doctor! I wasn’t going to mention TTC unless I felt it was appropriate, as really the thyroid issue was the most pressing issue right now. He has referred me to a specialist and I have to wait for a letter and I will get a thyroid ultrasound to check my cysts.

    I then told him I was wondering if my thyroid hormones were imbalanced as my cycles had become very long. He asked me about them so I ended up telling him the whole TTC story. I said I stopped bc May last year and had 6 super regular cycles, all 33 days long. Then I had a 34 day cycle and since then, they have been 44 and 43 days long, with this current cycle heading into the 40s too. His first reaction was “oh, you aren’t ovulating”. So, I pulled out my charts! And guess what, he was so happy to see them! I said I was also using OPKs and had detected LH surges. So now he is sure I am ovulating, but that for some reason it is really delayed. He said normally he gets day 21 bloods but that that obviously wont work for me. So I have all the paperwork now to get my bloods taken 7 days after I ovulate, going purely by my charting, and he gave me a form to get day 3 bloods taken too. So it was a very productive visit and I am very happy to get the ball rolling with both my thyroid and fertility tests. Now just to wait til I ovulate!

    I began taking a b complex to try to correct my 9 day LP. I had been ttc for almost 2 years prior. Had one m/c along the way. I took the b complex this cycle, and it worked right away. Not sure if it actually lengthened the LP any, because I got my bfp, but it certainly allowed enough time for implantation, which was my ultimate problem. xx

    Thanks FnC, i was terrified of being turned away and told to come back after 24 months off bc, so was very glad to get a doctor that not only wanted to get the ball rolling but also believed in charting!

    I agree with the others Liz.. I don't think you ovd yet either .. Sorry :hugs:

    Afm: I definetly ovd at some point but ff won't give me cross hairs because I missed the temps leading up to it.. I didn't bd at all around the time so their is no chance.. I'm just going to continue temping this month to help predict when af will arrive since its a long cycle for me!!

    Hi ladies

    I'm new to charting- this is my first month. I was wondering if you could take a look at my chart. I take my temp at around the same time every day (give or take 20 mins) and don't do anything beforehand other than reach for the thermometer- but my temps are all over the place. I had a “peak“ on my cbfm today- first in the 4 cycles I've been using it!

    Not sure what to expect temp wise now... Thanks in advance xx

    :hi: Wow your af has lasted a long time. Is this normal for you? Temps early on aren't really a worry it's more that you're waiting for a upwards shift to indicate ovulation. The fact they've dropped could be as your af is finishing or possibly (but less likely) it's because you're about to ovulate. Do you know how long your cycles normally last? X

    Hello there.

    Thanks for your input Fish&Chips.

    My af doesn't normally last that long, no. It did last cycle too tho! My cycles vary between 23 and 30 days. I got my peak on my cbfm (first ever and been using it 4 cycles). Xx

    The others might be a bit more knowledgeable than me but your af might cause the cbfm to give you a positive. Make sure you cover all bases though and bd!! Good luck xx
