Temp rise 5 days after Ovulation?

I'm confused - hopefully someone can help!
I've been charting and using OPK's.
My temp has been rising 5 days after I seem to ovulate (according to 'signs' and OPK's).
Is this a problem?
Also, should we have intercourse - around the +ve OPK, or just before temp rise?

OPKs and CM change before you ov. The temp rise comes after (as progesterone is released by the corpus luteum after the egg has popped).

So a typical pattern would be fertile CM/positive OPK - 24-48 hrs later ovulation - next day temp rise starts

But it sounds like yours is stretched by an extra day or so. Mine is slightly different too - I get the CM a day or two before my LH surge and then ovulate very quickly (same day or at a push the following day) and then my temp rise. Our bodies are all different! Just keep dtd every day or every other day around your entire fertile time.

Hi, I agree with what euroshagmoe has said, I found ovulation etc very confusing, still do if im honest!! I read a post on another site on how to tell when you ae fertile, its from a natural fertility expert and all about recognising your body's signs. May be worth a read?! I found it quite helpful. I will put link t post at the end of message, hope it helps. Good luck xxxx

Thanks for that link wrighty2010.

I do have all the signs around the same time as OPK says I's just that my temp doesn'to go up for another 5 days or so afterwards - very confusing!!!
