I've only been charting on paper for 2 months now, but I've been charting in my head for 20+ years. I've always known I've ovulated early. I've always had all the physical signs. I only recently learned about temping, but in the two months I've temped it's confirmed that I am an early ovulator.
The thing is, I have undeniable proof that I ovulate as early as I do, and still people are telling me that it's simply impossible to ovulate that early.

I started temping on Sunday October 8. My temp at 5am was 96.7. (by the look of this month, that's baseline pre-o)
Going back a few days from that.
On Wednesday October 4, I passed a bloodclot that was more greyish then red with slightly grey flakes the whole day. I bleed for a total of 2 days, but spotted for 7 days. This is when I'm thinking I had a miscarriage.
On Monday October 9 My temp at 5am was 97.5. (by this months look that is average for post-o) Around 9am I started getting hot shooting pains in my uterus and went to the emergency room thinking I might have a problem because I didn't bleed very much when I thought I had a miscarriage.
I had a pelvic ultra sound and the woman who does this for a living and sees uterus and ovaries and such in all forms of function said "You are ovulating today. I can see the follicle (whatever it's called) on you ovary is burst. It's day 14 of your cycle." This is just 5 days after I started bleeding...and I was still spotting. I had the two only real ways to prove ovulation. Ultra sound and a thermal shift on the same day.
The only thing odd about this cycle is that I had no physical indication that I was ovulating on CD5, but on CD9 I had EWCM, increased sex drive, ovulation pain and a second thermal shift. Everyone says it's impossible to ovulate twice...OK. either way, I didn't catch the egg that cycle and I started spotting on CD23.
This month I had all the physical symptoms of ovulation (EWCM, increased sex drive, Ovulation pain, and thermal shift) on Saturday Novemeber 4. My temps jumped from the 96's to the 97's. But everyone, including FF says it's simply impossible to ovulate that early. I'm starting to see a pattern in that on CD 9 I was given cross hairs.
By FF's count I started spotting on 10 DPO but by my calculation it's 13 DPO.
I'm completely open to the possibility that I may have progeterone issues because I have a history of having issues, but should I be more concerned with the fact that I'm giving every indication that I seem to be ovulating when it's simply impossible to do so?

My question is...
Why is it simply impossible to ovulate on CD 5 or 6?

And why is it that when I tell people that a pelvic ultra sound confirmed ovulation on CD 5 my response is "I don't know..."

I'm honestly not worried or stressed, I'm just 38 and I really don't want to just sit here for 6 months before finding out I have a problem. I feel like I just don't have 6 months to wait.

I'm just concerned that being such an early O'er might be a hormone imbalance that could be interfering with getting pregnant.

I've also started wondering about my complete lack of interest in sex after ovulation, until the next ovulation. I litterally only want to be sexual about 4 days out of the month. That can't be right...especially since I should be going threw my peak soon.

I just found this information:

Early Ovulation
Q: I have short cycles and usually ovulate on CD 8. Is that a problem?

A: "Too early" would be ovulation on cycle day 10 or earlier, so ovulating on CD 8 is usually considered too early and can be a problem when you TTC. It's possible to get pregnant if you regularly ovulate early in the menstrual cycle, it happens all the time. But when you ovulate that early, your chances of getting pregnant are reduced because: 1. With too-early ovulation you may be releasing eggs that have not matured properly. Improperly matured eggs are not as good for fertilization and implantation compared with eggs that have matured properly. 2. The reproductive system (hormone levels) is not in sync when eggs mature early, thus further decreasing the chance of pregnancy. 3. The lining of the uterus, the endometrium, may not be ready for implantation when not enough time has passed since the last menstrual period. The egg may have become fertilized but the blastocyst (the fertilized egg) arrives in the uterus and cannot implant properly because the lining is not appropriate.

It is hard, I feel it in my mind, but what makes it even worse is I don't have that concrete proof so it's not like it's real for everyone else. It's not even real for my family. Just me.


This is going to sound completely insane, but I think I actually caught the egg this month. I think we successfully fertilized but instead of implanting I think it bounce around and I lost it. My spotting was way too strange, totally not my norm. It was text book implantation spotting once a day for 3 days, then on the 4th day it turned into my regular pre-menstral spotting, then turned into my period.

I'm going to see the doctor this morning.

I often wondered if maybe our ovaries can work seperately from each other...like one goes early, or one doesn't take it's turn the way it's supposed too.
Can you release one egg from each ovary during one ovulation before the progesterone kicks in?
