BBT question Please Help! (possible TMI) chart added pg 3

Is it possible for your BBT to rise and not ovulate? I started charting on fertilyfriend.com, and supposedly I ovulated on CD 23. How accurate is BBT charting at detecting ovulation?

This is my first month charting my BBT and I am still learning. I don't think I have been ovulating regularly I have lots of ovarian cysts.

It is possible for your temp to rise and for there to be no ovulation - well, that's happened to me before. My temp also will rise for a few days, and then drop again - but I'm pretty sure I'm not fertile.

As long as you do it everyday at the same time, before doing anything else, you should have quite accurate results. Are you checking your mucus too? Because that's a really helpful indicator of when you're going to ovulate - because your temps will only tell you after the fact. 

I will never be a perfect mother -  It's taken me years to be okay with that.


Instead, I am the type of mother my children need me to be - full of love, random trivia, and stocked with hoards of candy fish.

Ok yes its tottally possible. however its also possible that you ovulated late. there are many factors to bbt...Did you sleep well? Have a restless night? Have a few drinks? Did you go to bed late. All those are factors plus more. How are you checking your mucus? Are you checking your cervical position as well?

In some women, it can be hard to tell - and as squee as this may seem, it helps to 'play' with it. If it's like egg white (very clear, slightly sticky), that's the jackpot time. It should go from really sticky and thick to egg white to back to sticky, according to my doctor. Are you trying to conceive, or trying to avoid pregnancy? I myself am in the latter.
