Long Cycle, FF BBT chart, When did I ovulate?

I have had a super long cycle.. I think I had an annovulatory cycle March-April with fluctuating hormones which has meant my temperatures have been higher than usual. But now I think I've ovulated for what would have been the next cycle if I had have a period in April..

I know there are dashed cross hairs on my chart but because my pre O temps weren't my usual I'm not sure O happened when it is saying.

When do you think I ovulated?

Thanks in advance x

I'm not sure it looks like you have yet, despite the crosshairs. I'd guess possibly on cd64 - did you notice your cervical mucus or any other physical signs?

@VenusStarr I have had EWCM for the last few days on and off. But CM has never been a sign for me because I get random types all through my cycles.

I had ovary pain CD63 and 64.

No other signs really.. I had sort of given up with this cycle until AF comes but then my temperatures seem to be higher than my normal so I think I may have ovulated.

My pre O temps are usually below 36.45 so this cycle is hard to judge.

@EssJayyCee I would definitely say you're just in the tww now, with the ovary pain and cm. Did you dtd around cd63/64? Fingers crossed. It must be really tough having long cycles xx

EssJayyCee Fri 17-May-19 15:44:22

@VenusStarr I hope you're right.
We DTD cd62 morning and early evening and cd63 late at night.
Fingers are crossed but I'm not feeling hopeful!

They aren't always this long.
I get two or three just over average length cycles then a long one. My body doesn't make things easy for me. Thank you though x

Sounds like good timing 🤞 @EssJayyCee do you know your luteal please? Hopefully in about 10 days you'll get good news x

EssJayyCee Fri 17-May-19 22:33:59

@VenusStar its about 17days give or take a day. I hope so! But not feeling hopeful!

VenusStarr Sun 19-May-19 12:28:47

What's your chart looking like now @EssJayyCee? If you ovulated on cd64 think you'll have the 3 post ovulation temperature rises to confirm 🤞

EssJayyCee Sun 19-May-19 15:42:51

I have ovulated at some point just not sure where exactly. My temps have stayed up. I tested today because I have been having sore boobs and mild cramps for the last 4 days but it was BFN..

VenusStarr Sun 19-May-19 16:23:11

That's good news. I'd say you're around 6dpo from your chart. Hopefully af doesn't arrive smile

EssJayyCee Sun 19-May-19 16:51:21

@VenusStar I hope not but the length of this cycle I'd be happy if AF did arrive.. it's been a long time coming!

Are you TTC?

VenusStarr Sun 19-May-19 16:55:50

Yes @EssJayyCee, ttc for 16 cycles then had a mmc in April. Am in my first cycle since the miscarriage. I don't chart or temp any more. Af should be here next weekend (or I am hoping it doesn't arrive). Having some tests under infertility clinic over the summer.

Quite a tricky chart to interpret! Do you take your temp at the exact same time each morning? I ask because throughout the cycle you have temps ranging 36.0 - 36.7, when the temperature shift would only be 0.4 or so difference. I'm just wondering if fluctuating times at which you take your temp could mask ovulation on your chart?

EssJayyCee Sun 19-May-19 17:30:56

@lewk yes I take it at 6.30 every morning.
My temps are usually 36.0- 36.45 before ovulation and 36.5- 36.75 post ovulation but this cycle I think I have had a bit of hormonal imbalance with pco.

lewk Sun 19-May-19 17:36:44

Ah okay then - looks like OV was around CD64 then, fingers crossed for BFP!

EssJayyCee Sun 19-May-19 21:33:47

@VenusStarr I'm sorry to hear about your miscarriage sad
Have you got PCOS or anything or is it unexplained infertility?
Don't ever give up hope!

@lewk I am beginning to think it was more CD62 or CD64 as well hopefully CD64 Then we may have DTD at the right time 🤞🏻
Are you TTC?

lewk Sun 19-May-19 22:54:39

Hopefully for you then - will you POAS two weeks from CD64 then unless AF appears? Yes I'm TTC, currently on CD56 though so in a slightly similar situation - only started BBT at CD41 though so not sure I've ovulated. Previously cycles have been 29-40 days. Just want AF now (or BFP but I think it's an annovulatory cycle!)

TheLuckDragon Sun 19-May-19 23:50:57

No advice I'm afraid but can I ask if you use an app to chart? If so, which one?

EssJayyCee Mon 20-May-19 05:28:58

@TheLuckDragon I use fertility friend smile

@leek yes I will test then. Its rubbish having long cycles! I think this cycle may be 2 cycles together for me.. I think I had an annovulatory one March-April and didn't bleed then April-may is the one I'm on now.. but not sure.. I just like to hope!

I have had a massive temp drop today so it's either AF on her way or a random temp (I woke up early) or possibly implantation? Hmm.

EssJayyCee Mon 20-May-19 05:29:26

Sorry @lewk even 🤣

VenusStarr Mon 20-May-19 07:58:07

Probably unexplained @EssJayyCee. I ovulate OK and dh OK. I do have fibroids but they aren't problematic according to the doctors. Will find out more in September. Am holding out for us to manage to do it on our own...

How you doing today?

EssJayyCee Mon 20-May-19 13:24:31

@VenusStarr I'm okay thank you.
I have had a big dip in my temperature so not sure what's going on.
Maybe implantation, maybe just a sign that I still didn't actually ovulate or it may just be that I woke up an hour earlier. I am hoping it will rise in the morning again!

EssJayyCee Mon 20-May-19 13:25:16

@VenusStarr Hopefully you will manage on your own. My fingers are crossed for you! Keep your chin up. Xx

VenusStarr Mon 20-May-19 16:05:31

Thank you @EssJayyCee smile it's hard sometimes but af due soon so not too long to wait.

Strange about your temperature drop, fingers crossed for implantation 🤞
