    Hi everyone!

    Quick question as I'm getting confused with my cycle. I went off the pill a couple of months ago and started taking my temperature on a daily basis. For the last 2 cycles, I had my period after 24 days so technically I should be ovulating around Day 10.

    Last week end (around Day 10), I started feeling super horny so hubby and I had fun(!). On Monday I had bad cramps in my lower belly like period pain. I was super bloated with gaz (TMI?). Today is Wednesday, Day 13, and my temperature is still low (around 36).

    So where am I?
    1/ Have I ovulated without a temperature rise?
    2/ Was it all wrong signs and I'm gonna ovulate in day 14 with a short luteal phase?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestion

    Annie

    I don't think what number the temp is matters really. Think it all depends on pattern.

    It can take longer for some women's temps to rise apparently - some 48 hrs. Also, you can get pain while the eggs are maturing - it's not necessarily ovulation. I had a similar confusing pattern of temp rise last month. I don't know that we can pin ovulation down on the exact day - there are just sooo many factors!

    Thank you ladies. As I'm having discharge only today, I'd go with ovulation on Day 14 and shot luteal phase.
