O And Temp

This may sound like a dumb question, but can you have a sustained thermal shift without ovulating? I have PCOS and don't always ovulate and have AF. However, I ovulated last month, had a period, and to a thermal shift around the time I should have O'd. Is this possible even if I didn't ovulate? Wouldn't my temps have stayed low?

Can someone please answer this. I am very confused about my temps and stuff, and any input is appreciated.

Your temps should stay the same with an increase if you do not O....usually.

****...i meant without rising or increasing.....****

Thanks Emma, my temps went up right right after I got a +OPK, have stayed up except one big dip on what I estimate to be 8dpo. I am 14 dpo now if I am counting right. My temps are steady and above what they were before my estimated O, but not much above. Have yet to recieve a +HPT. And I can't tell if the way I am feeling is PMS or PG symptoms. Af is due tomorrow or Friday so I guess we will see. Thanks again.

They seem steady and you are at 15 dpo.....How long is your luteal phase usually?

 

sqeekers - April 27

usually when I am regular around 14 to 16 days. I have gone as long as 18 and as short as 13.

Sqeekers, its not impossible but very unlikely to have such a range in your luteal phase. You luteal phase usually rangers by no more than 1, 2 days max. Are you sure you have gone to 18 down to 13...are you sure it wasn't O that you were miscalculating?

Yeah pretty sure, but like I have said before my cycles are pretty screwy so who knows. generally I would say 15 is the norm. I have felt all day today that I am gonna start any minute. Had some cramping early this morning and keep having a very wet feeling. I think I may run and get a different brand test tonight and see if that makes a difference if I dont start that is.

Hey squeekers, Are you on any medication for PCOS? If you are about to get AF, your cycle is not that long, it still falls in the "normal" length category. How do you know you have this? What are your symptoms? I looked at your chart, it seems your post ovulation temps are rather low. A typical pregnancy pattern for temps stay between 98.1 and 98.5 degrees. Plus temps stay high for more than 18 days a sure sign of pregnancy.

Yes I am sure I have PCOS I was diagnosed when I was 15. My temps are low but they are always low no matter what. My early cycle temps were almost all mid 96's. With my previous pregnancy's my temps didn't rise significantly until my 3rd trimester. And my cycle lengths are screwed up. When I actually O my cycles are typically 30days, when I don't O they can go for months. I O'd in early March, which I knew when I did, caused my period end of march. I am concerned now that maybe the +OPK and temp rise was a fluke and I didn't ovulate in April. Which means either back on the meds or wait it out to see when I O again on my own.

Sqeekers, do you think you could have ovulated on day 24? Your sustained temps after lead me to believe so, even though they are low. But knowing your history with low temps, I was just wondering if this was a possibility? I ovulate every month (the last 4 months) on cycle day 22 or 24 (I have a 36-37 day cycle), maybe you are ovulating later than what was indicated (you also indicated that you have been wet those days...) What do you think?

I dont think I o'd on the cd24 cuz my cervix was closed by then.
