Ovulation help??

Im a little confused by my ovulation this month. Usually my temps start low during my period and then there is a pretty obvious drop then shift in temp. This month, my temps started high, then dropped low and went way up again. Usually I ovulate around day 13/14 but does this look like I ovulated early? I got a very positive opk on day 9, and negatives on day 10&11 but didn’t test after that.. my temps started so go up after day 10/11 but it also seems like there could be a shift around day 15. I’m just so confused because this cycle is so unlike any other one I’ve had.

Re: Ovulation help??

  • There are a multitude of reason for strange/wonky cycles -- stress, illness, hormonal fluctuations, etc. It's not really an issue unless you keep noticing it happening. OPK's and temping are helpful, but the only way to really tell when you've ovulated is with bloodwork and ultrasound. You didn't mention how long you've been trying to get pregnant, but if it's been over a year without success (or 6 months if you are over 35), your best bet is to see a reproductive endocrinologist who will run all the tests, see if you are ovulating, and maybe prescribe a course of treatment.
