Had typical AF, temps didn't go below cover.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I had my very typical period.  Heavy-medium flow.  (not a light period or just spotting)  When AF started my temp still hadn't dropped below the coverline, but I temp vaginally, so I stopped and figured that when AF was done my temp would be down by then.  I just took my temp today and it is most certainly still not below the coverline (at CD9).  Today I've also been having cramps (front and back), and pain that I usually describe as O-pain in the left side, bloating, and very light spotting...but it's only CD9.

 

 I know the first thought might be that I should take an HPT.  I suppose I will (none on hand right now) to just rule it out, but I really don't think I'm pregnant.  I was taking them up until 14 dpo with all BFN's and my period was it's normal heaviness.

 

I'm actually wondering if there's anything else that could cause temps to stay elevated like that.  ...plus the other symptoms.

 

See cycle 2 & 3. (note: temps will seem on the high side because I temp vaginally)

Something to note:  Since about CD15 of cycle 2, I haven't been feeling right.  In fact my O day was delayed by more than a week once these symptoms started, and that never happens unless I'm sick.

Symptoms:  headache, dizziness/vertigo when bending over or laying down and moving my head from one side to the other, mild stomach queasiness. (I don't feel like eating my usual healthy stuff).  One thought is that it might be seasonal allergies.  I've never had them before but I did recently move to a new town, so it's possible....I'm just don't know how to remedy them....or if that's even it. I've been to the doctor for some blood tests and it wasn't helpful.  My iron and D is on the low side....but they just said something about benign vertigo and that I could take some pills for it.  

 

 

Sorry this is so long and thanks in advance for any thoughts!

Aside from the bleeding, your chart looks like you are pregnant. I'd test again for sure.
