Hi everyone, I joined this forum as I really need some help. I was on birth control pills for 12 years and I stopped using them in August last year. I then started fertility charting by observing cervical mucus and logging basal body temperatures. In September and October my ovulation happened on cycle day 15, in November this moved to day 14 and in December it happened on day 13. December was a strange month for me, as the cervical mucus in my fertile days wasnt ideal - it was different from previous months (really white and creamy, instead of wet and egg white, like in the months before). My luteal phase in September, October and November was only 9 days long. In December it was 11 days long, which was unusual for me. My cycle length is 24 days. Ovulation was confirmed by my basal body temperature shift each month (the temperature always went up to 36.4 or 36.5 - every month until this one (January). I am on cycle day 17 and my basal body temperature stayed the same as in follicular phase (36.3) instead of shifting to my usual 36.4 or 36.5 Does this mean I didnt ovulate this month? On cycle day 15 I saw a big egg white blob of mucus in the morning, which scared me slightly (though I had a similar blob in December). It only happened one time on that day and I then had wet/creamy mucus after. Does anyone know what that means? Am I having problems that should be checked out? I went to my GP at the end of November, to ask for advice on fertility (as I was worried of my short luteal phase) and my GP was really unhelpful. She told me to stop charting the data and have intercourse 2 to 3 times a week, and ignore any data that I collected (she didnt even want to look at the data). I find that very hard to do, as I know that in case I have fertility problems, they will ask me to chart my temperatures and Id rather do this sooner than later since I am already 36 years old. If anyone can relate to my problem or have any advice for me, I would be really happy to hear from you. I also dont know whether I should still chart my temperatures or stop and relax, as my doctor advised? Please see my latest chart attached (from January 2017), and also my December chart.
