Default BBT Concerns- Can you help?

Hello everyone!

My DH and I have been TTC for 27 months. I have charted my BBT's on and off for two years. For the last three months I have made a point to chart my BBT's consistantly.

This is what I found:

I have ovulated on days16, 20, 26 and 26 of my cycle (seems a little DELAYED doesn't it?)

The days post ovulation are between 9 and 12.

My temperatures range from 96.0 to 98.2 degree (a little low- huh?)

And, my cycles range from 28 days to 37 days long (haven't been too consistent)

I'm wondering if my hormones may be a little goofy ( I have a Dr. appointment in a few weeks, but I was just curious about this in the meantime).

Is there anyone that has experienced any of these things, and what did your Dr. recommend or what did you end up doing?

Just curious- any help or advice would be appreiated!

It sounds like you are heading in the right step by having it checked out. Your temps aren't really all that low. Mine were pretty close to that when I was charting. That is why they have you do it befor eyou get up in teh morning. You rtemp increases when you get up and blood really starts pumping.

My temps fall within your range normally, so I don't think they're low either. The variation in your cycle lengths is a bit more unusual, but 9-12 days on the luteal phase is not too weird either. With the luteal phase (the time after O), sometimes it's easy to count a day of light spotting as day 1 of the next cycle, when a spotting day should continue the previous cycle. Day 1 should be the first day of full bleeding.

If you're using Fertility Friend to determine your O date, that might contribute somewhat to the variation in your ovulation date. I find that FF is not as accurate as manually determining your O date based on the information in Taking Charge of Your Fertility. If you don't already have a copy of this book, please get one. It's well worth the $25 or so that it will cost you, and I used mine constantly every cycle. FF is close, but can sometimes miss the O day by three or four days.

Good luck to you!

Thanks for all the information. I guess I'll find out more from the Dr. next week.
