I'm confused this cycle. Last cycle was a perfect 28 days with O on 16. I really hoped it would continue this cycle since it would be my second complete cycle having weaned from breastfeeding. I was hopeful at first by the look of my chart, that I did O on cd16 again. However, I never got a positive OPK. I thought maybe I missed my surge, but then my temps did not remain so encouraging.
I took a wondfo OPK yesterday afternoon and it seemed positive, then I tried to confirm it with a smiley and it was negative. We HIO anyway, but still no temp rise this morning.
Anyway, I'm supposed to get a blood test done for hormone testing. When I told my doctor that my cycles are usually 28-32 days, he said to get it done between cd20-22. Then a nurse at the office said to go 7DPO, which is what I understand to be the most accurate.
So, my question is, does anyone think that I actually did O on 16 and should go get the blood test Tomorrow (It would only be 6dpo, but the labs are closed on the weekend) Should I wait to see if my temps go up tomorrow? My OPK is negative again as of late last night, so I feel like it should have risen today, but it did not. If I didn't O on cd16, can the blood test still give any good information? I have not had any anovulatory cycles, though when I actually O varies between CD16-22. I had one cycle that I didn't O until 29, but that was the same cycle I stopped breastfeeding so I just chalked it up to that.
My chart is the MyBFP chart in my siggy. Sorry for the lack of name change. Is from when I was pregnant with my daughter, but does link to my current chart. I just don't know when to get this testing done. Last cycle they tried sticking me 5 times, and couldn't get it and Ive had to wait till this cycle. I'll be so disappointed if I can't pinpoint the right day to go this time and have to wait again. Potatoes.
