I've been continuing to chart, observing CM, OPKs when it looked promising and also to "test out" the LH, and watching what happens to BBT until my RE appointment on the 15th. I was pleasantly surprised to have EWCM, a positive OPK followed by 2 NEGATIVE OPKs (take that you incompetant OBGYN), and enough of a temperature shift to get a vertical line on FF. My temps have been hanging in there for 2 whole days (yeah, I know... but you have to celebrate the little victories LOL). So I was secretly hoping that I FINALLY ovulated on my own... would love to actually be able to tell the RE I got AF.
Anyway, last night I had a paper to work on and I was on my laptop late and worried I wouldn't sleep and BBT would be messed up so I took 2 melatonin pills. I've taken them before and I should have only taken 1 but for some reason I had it in my head that the dosage was 2. This morning my temperature PLUMMETED. Like almost a whole degree plummeted. Since the only difference was the melatonin, which I haven't taken in a while I asked Dr. Google and low and behold, yep... melatonin makes your temp drop. Even better I found this great study on lots of things that affect BBT and I thought I'd share.
Just thought I'd pass those along in case they help anyone else. The drop in BBT would have been good to know. I've taken melatonin before because it's non habit forming and I thought it was safe (again... idiot OBGYN). I would like to be able to go back and see if the drops in my chart match when I took melatonin but of course, I didn't record that.
Off Mirena Nov 2013, On Nuvaring end of Jan, Back off Sept 2014. Never ending cycle starting end of Sept...
11/14 Provera failed... cycle continues
12/14 High FSH (57 "midcycle") OBGYN had no clue... about anything
01/15 More lab results coming back from RE. U/S showed small (1")cyst on left ovary, thin lining, and couldn't locate right ovary so possibly straight to DE and IVF
Occassionally mess with the chart below to see "what if" and learn (not to make it pretty but because FF stays drunk with me).
