Tanking Chart

I'm on day nine of my cycle and my chart is acting all kinds of crazy. We start the first five days with some very stable temps of 97.6 to 97.8. That's abnormally stable for me. Then I have three days in a row of temperatures that are nosediving into an abyss. This morning was 96.4. What the heck?

Sorry for the blurry picture. My camera battery is dying so I couldn't mess with the settings.

Has anyone seen a chart like this? Do you think it has to do with the estrogen and progesterone pills? Does charting even work when you're on hormone replacement therapy?


  1. I don't know about the hormones, but could your thermometer need a new battery?

    1. It's a pretty new thermometer (4 months maybe?), so I don't think so - good idea though. Maybe I'll take my temp with two thermometers (I have a regular non-BBT one as well), just to make sure.

  2. Oh, I am SO sorry, as I know exactly how you feel. This hasn't happened to me since I first started charting my own journey back in winter-spring 2011. Then, last week, mid-follicular cycle, my temps went from the normal 97.2 to 96.4. What?! Two days! And a lot of bouncing from 97.3 to 96.8 since then. Very not like my cycle. I'm trying to figure out what's going on. Best I can tell, my FSH took a dip on the high side this month... Right on. Keep your head up! Hugs!
