Hi ladies. I am so confused with my chart this month. I have recently been told I have estrogen dominance, which would explain why most cycles I never really dry up. But this month was extra strange. First off I had *eggwhite* fluid early in my fertile stage. I haven't had eggwhite in over 3 years!!! Just very watery. Then my fertile phase seemed to go on forever....finally a temp spike at day 20 and it stayed up for 3 days with a drop on day 23...then I missed two days temps and now I'm still low. Did I even ovulate? I can't recall a time when I had high temps for 3 days coinciding with cervical fluid and *not* ovulated...but I've never had my temps go down like this either. And now I have been spotting for two days! My typical cycle is 27-29 days although I have had longer ones. Average luteal phase is 11-13 days. This would put me at 7dpo and already spotting for 2 days?<br><br>
What do you think? Ovulated but short lp? Never O'd? Something else? I'm so confused!

New to FAM, but could you just be O'ing now? Did you have any stress earlier that might have put off O? Could it be breakthrough bleeding that's causing this 'spotting' with low temps. Earlier high temps would have to be chalked up to something else if that were the case I guess.

Well, I don't think I'm Oing now. I have no fertile fluid, no cramping....I felt all of that earlier when it say I ovulated. Now my temp is back up again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: So I have no idea what it is. I was greeted with this this morning though:<br><br>
FERTILITY ANALYSIS: Spotting at this time of your cycle may indicate that you are pregnant. This is referred to as 'implantation spotting' and can occur when the fertilized egg burrows into the uterine wall (endometrium). You are in the post-ovulatory infertile phase of your cycle. A standard thermal shift has occurred. It has been accompanied by a complete cervical fluid dry-up. TCOYF estimates that ovulation occurred on Tuesday, August 21, 2007. This was estimated using temperature and cervical fluid dry-up signs.<br><br>
But I highly doubt it. I have PMS symptoms and I feel like my period is about to start. My temps wouldn't have been low if I was pregnant I don't think anyway. I think I'm just having a super weird month and perhaps I never ovulated at all.

Hmmm... I have no idea! Maybe your body is just trying to regulate itself... I will keep an eye on this!

I know you started a new cycle. But I just want to say I DO think you ovulated around the time your chart indicates.
