UGH! I wish I wasn't so nutso. I want to poas and I'm just finishing my period!

Here's the thing... my temps haven't dropped below my coverline.

I looked back and it's quite likely that this is pretty normal, though goober that I am I don't always temp during my period... so...

since my post-period temps (below typical coverline) are really low (96.9-97.3 ish) and my temp this morning was 97.9 and it seems my period is already over (just a few days), my brain is running around wanting to test.

well, it was NOT just spotting, I soaked tampons for two days and semi-soaked them yesterday, too.

the test sitting in my bathroom is worth $4-5 and I SHOULD NOT WASTE IT!

tell me not to test!

UGH, it's insanity!

Yep this happens to me too. My temps stay up around the coverline during AF, and don't typically drop down till around cd 6 or 7. I am cd7 today and they are still about where my coverline was last cycle. I have read that it is normal, that the fluctuating/old hormones can make your temp stay up a bit during af. And I am thinking if it is the estrogen surge just before ovulation that pushes temps down, there just isn't much estrogen yet in the cycle.

That being said, I did have a "period" once which turned ut to be some kind of breakthrough bleeding because I was actually pregnant. I did not know I was pregnant until cd 10 of the next cycle (or about cd40) when I started bleeding again and I thought it strange. A friend told me to take a hpt and it was positive. I wound up miscarrying that pregnancy a week or two later though. I wish I could remember what that bleeding was like (the fake period) but at the time I didn't really pay attention. You can bet I do now !

Do you use OPKs ? if so, they will test + if you are pg. So if you get a negative OPK you also know you are not pregnant. I use this info to help stop the added insanity midcycle.

If it were me I'd go to the $1 dollar store and buy a cheapie to test with, just to settle your mind.

GL !
