I think I might be one of those late temp changing people -- I'm SURE I've O'd as far as CM and CP, but it will take a few days to get a solid shift (often I'll get a low plateau rise that isn't high enough to count). For a while I thought I just had a  short LP (10-11 days).  

P.S. That's my oops, too. BD on CD 8 when I usually O'd around CD 16 -- this time I think I O'd CD 14, so 5-6 days sperm survival.

Yeah, it happens. My temp doesn't shift until 2 or even 3 days after ovulation. It is consistent in that regard.

 

I know that ovulation occurs 2 to 3 days before the temp rise because of peak fluid day and distinct pains.

According to TAONFP 4th Edition, it can be 3 days before or after the temp shift, and it is well documented by many experiments that O can be 3 days before or after Peak Day.

Isn't it funny that so many women think "right after my period" is the safest time?  After my dear oops DS we decided only AFTER O was safe, and no troubles since (knock on wood) ;)
