Here's a question for all of you nfp ladies. I just got my period, but my temperature didn't drop (it's 3 days into my period and my temps are still at the high temp level from last cycle whereas they usually drop down drastically on the first day of my period). Has this ever happened to anyone else before? I've taken a couple of pregnancy tests, but they're all coming back negative. Any insight on what might be happening would be appreciated!

Hmmm...I had a cycle once where my temps stayed up, was not pg, but I didn't have my period. I had an ovarian cyst- you might look that up to see if you could have one and still have your period.

Other than's possible (but probably VERY unlikely) that you could be pg. I have a friend who had her period for 3 mos after she got pg. I didn't get a +pg test until my af was 1 week late (so 20dpo)

Or there could be something else going on. Maybe you're sleeping differently, and that's affecting your temps?

I think it's not uncommon for temps to stay high during your period. I remember reading that in TCOYF. Also, mine are really erratic during my period. Sometimes high, sometimes dipping.
