    Default Slow rise BBT and pinpointing ovulation?

    I've always had a clear, sharp rise on my BBT chart, so O' is easy to pinpoint. This month, it seems I'm having a slow rise for the first time!

    I had several days of EWCM (I often have none). I did OPK's from CD11 to CD17 and gave up (basically I just spat the dummy because O wasn't happening lol). I noticed what looked like full ferning on a saliva test on CD15-18 and some partial fern days on CD14 and CD19.

    So now FF has put my O day as possibly CD21. That was the last day I had EWCM. I had quite strong O type pains on CD21 & CD22.

    FF says my O day is ambiguous because it's a slow rise and I don't have a positive OPK to match it up with. My temp wasn't higher than the previous 6 temps until the morning of CD23, but it had risen 0.1 degree the day before that. My one real clue of O is usually really sensitive n!pples the day of O. I had that on CD22 and CD23 though!

    Usually I would just say "O happened around about then" but, it might make a difference as to whether we're in with a chance this month or not. DH came home on Tuesday (CD22) and we DTD at lunchtime. So, I guess if I O'd on Monday (CD21) we're probably out?

    I'm not sure if there's even a way to know for sure, but out of interest, what do you think?

    I would put O on CD22, just because of CD19 temp.
    i have also had a slow rising temp last cycle, but I had a dip in temp on O day.
    For you.

    Thanks @MadSci that's what I was thinking, just because of the CD19 temp..

    Hmm, I do not like this ambiguous slow rising temp situation! lol

    FF changed it's mind this morning and estimates O at CD22 being the Tuesday instead hopefully that's correct

    I think it's right too.
    Do you bd once sometime 5 days before ovulation is due?
    It can help sperm.
    We used to bd once on cd10 then bd every 36 hours after that

    Thanks Kazza Yeah, that's the trouble for us unfortunately. We BD as much as possible in the days leading up to O, but this cycle he was away till the last minute!
