Is it possible to have ovulated with a BBT spike 4 days before LH surge??
myblueyzcu posted:
I am 40 years old trying to conceive baby # 3 (we adopted our first child, our second child was by birth, and then I had an ectopic pregnancy almost four years ago.) Last cycle I have used various herbal supplements to boost my fertility. I aslo began using the OvaCue fertility monitor. My period came one day early (27 day cycle). I am usually 28 to 29 days (since the birth of my daughter - five and a half years ago.) This cycle, according to the fertility monitor and my BBT spike, I ovulated during the 24 hours between cycle day 9 and cycle day 10. This is VERY early for me! Today is cycle day 13. And today I got a positive OPK. I should also say that I had an abundance of egg white CM on cycle day 9. I began taking progesterone cream to boost implantation and support a possible pregnancy. Now I'm second guessing what is right. Is the fertility monitor/BBT/CM right or is the LH surge right?
