Hi DJA,
From what I know...a + result from an OPK means that you most likely will ovulate within the next 12-48 hours. Sometimes people see a pre-O dip in temps right before ovulation. It is possible to have a + OPK result (showing the leutinizing hormone at its peak) and then not O, but I think that's not very common, so let's just assume that's not what happened for you.

I'll tell you this...on my current cycle, I got a + OPK result, another + the very next day, then a -...then I stopped testing. Fertility Friend states that I didn't O until about 4 days after the first + result, so I guess those OPK's can be used as guides, but they can't be entirely relied upon.

My hunch is that you're very close to your O time...so keep BD'ing until you see significantly higher and sustained temps!

Good luck...

Hi Elizabeth: My charting has been a bit off kilter since I had Amelia. My last cycle was 33 days instead of my pre-pregnancy norm of 27-28 days. My temps are about 3-4 tenths of a degree lower during the pre-O phase too. So I'm not sure what is up. The CM signs are tracking correctly. I've never worked out the CP part. So I will remain hopeful, and you never know about the full moon!

:o) okay well maybe it was just getting it at 48hrs prior or something, I've got everything crossed for you! I didn't realize it was a full moon! its cloudy here. I had the same thing happen to me yesterday..lol, until I read the directions again, doh! I wasn't very happy today when I got the same reading.

are all of your other signs in line? CM, CP and the rest of your chart?

Hmmm... Well, on CD 14 it was a definite +, so I was giddy and hopeful all day. But no temp rise today. I am going to keep thinking positively and hope to see a rise tomorrow. Guess I was just convinced I'd ovulate at the full moon!

remember those things have rules...lol which I just learned by reading the directions on mine. If it is a faint line, it isn't ovulation for my OPK. it has to be darker than the test line to be truly positive. Another thing to remember is that the OPK's aren't full proof and they are testing for the hormonal surge PRIOR to O. Your temp should drop down low then quickly rise, though some people have a slower rise. Your temp will ALWAYS rise after O until you reach your next start of a cycle when it will drop down a bit again.

Ovulation and temperatures

Postby dja » Fri Jul 02, 2004 06:53 pm

Okay, I'm a bit confused. I had a + OPK yesterday - CD 14. This morning I was hoping to see my basal temp having gone up, but it was even lower than the mornings of CD 13 and 14. I did another OPK today, and it showed a slight + (which I realize is a negative according to the directions). Is it possible to have ovulated without seeing the temperature rise?
