My partner and I want to start a family next cycle and so I have been doing practice charting.
I have been off the pill since November last year and I have charted 2 cycles since with this current cycle being number 3.
I have been charting my BBT, CM and using OPK to figure out when I ovulate.
The previous cycles I have gone from 33 days to 30 days and then 29 days on my last cycle.
My charts were looking clear with my temperature dip around day 17 on cycle 1 and day 15 on cycle 2 and the temperatures were also matching up with my ovulation app, my OPKs and CM.
However this current cycle, I missed charting my temperature for the first 5 days after my period and when I started back charting the temperature dip was on day 14 which didn't match my ovulation app. I tested using my OPK on days 15,16,17 and it was all negative.
I think that I have ovulated earlier this cycle.
It is so important to pin point ovulation as my partner works away and so I need to make sure I tell him when he needs to take time off.
I was just wondering if anyone has any tips or advice on charting BBT and if they use an ovulation app and OPKs to help with pin pointing ovulation.
