Hello ladies<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I was just wondering if anyone could tell me why my post-o temps do no drop until af has come and gone? I notice that most of you know af is coming because your temps start to drop. Mine stay elevated all through her visit and sometimes a day or two beyond. Anyone know what this means? Am I unbalanced in some way?<br>
Thank you!<br><br>

Brandi- in TCOYF it says that some people dont show their temp shift right away, so it takes a couple of days. now, if you are one of those people i would assume that it is also true of your ovulation temp shift...maybe you are actually ovulating sooner?..i had to turn TCOYF in to the library so i cant look it up but i know it has info on this issue, so you should look it up. hope this helps! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"> from the bean-baby-belly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust">

TCOYF says that elevated temperatures during menstruation (ruling out alcohol or stress) can be due to residual progesterone from the last cycle or fluctuating hormones. Anyone know what it means to still have progesterone during your period, if it is bad, or just normal and should not get in the way of ttc?<br><br>

I'm prettty sure there is nothing wrong with you and it won't interfere. TCOYF doesn't make big of it leading me to believe it is just another variation of normal. This month, my temps didn't drop til day 3 and really dropped on day 9.

Thanks Amy for the reassurance! I looked at your chart, I could have been looking at one of my own! I think I will just not temp while I am bleeding, might make for a better coverline any way.<br><br>
