A question for charters: high bbt after period?

A question for charters: usually my bbt drops the day before my period, or on the day of my period. This time, it's stayed up at pre-period levels for a whole week...

I know it's not due to high progesterone a) because I got my period and b) because I had a blood test on day 2 of cycle which showed low progesterone and low estrogen (as expected at that stage). What else could it be? Anyone have any ideas?

I'm confused! I've charted for 2 years and this has never happened...

(It was definitely a period, and I'm definitely not pregnant!)

Many thanks

@Two4joy Can you screenshot your chart?

Have any other factors changed? New duvet, going to bed at a different time, more alcohol this week?! Just thinking...!

Thanks hcopp. I’ve attached last cycle and this cycle. Nothing I’ve been doing consistently has changed.
Drinking does cause a spike but I only drank once this week & only one glass.
I have picked up a cold today which might explain today’s spike but I was only exposed to it on Friday so doesn’t explain why temps never dropped on Sun/Mon last week...

@Two4joy That is weird! I don't know what to suggest, I'm afraid. Keeping temp'ing, and let us know what transpires? xx

I had this this month. I thought it weird too. Currently 9dpo so ill let you know. Had bloods done on cd3 which were fine though.

Oh that’s interesting. Were you unwell at all at the start of the cycle?
Good to see it went back down quite quickly and you still ovulated that month.

I wasn't ill or anything. I've never had that before either. Was very weird. Then again I've never had such a stable period as I had later on either.

That's really weird as I read this last week and then this week have had af but temp hasn't gone down. Really weird as normal af and BFN the day before I came on so definitely not pregnant. Has anyone else's gone back down yet?

If it stays up then do an HPT. I had this - temps were higher than my normal follicular phase but not quite as high as normal luteal phase- and it was an ectopic. I’d had a bleed (5 days, period-like) and a BFN before that so would not really otherwise have suspected pregnancy.

Mine is still up - it has been 12 days now 🤷‍♀️

Mine too, I will try to attach this month and last months charts to show. It went down one day to last months coverline but then straight back up again. I have even tried a new thermometer to see if it was faulty but the other one was the same. 🤔

Just to update. I got a BFP this month, however it appears to have been a chemical and I just stagers bleeding today.

Two4Joy Tue 21-May-19 08:12:25

I don’t want to tempt fate but the last 2 days it seems to have gone back down below coverline (usually 36.4)...

Really sorry about your chemical, Whyhaveidonethis. X
