Ok so ive starting temping this cycle so i can confirm ov is when i think it is, but just wanted to check something. I have been taking my temp at roughly 6.30am (Sat was 7.20am), but today i woke up needing a wee at 5.00am so took it (97.20f) and then i took it again for some reason at 6.45am when my alarm went off (97.55f), which one should i use? I know you need to be taking it at the same time every day, but ive also read you need to take it after the longest sleep- which one is correct?

The first temp, even though it was at the wrong time. It has to be your waking temp after a proper (few hours at least) sleep.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but on a similar Subject, what if you work shifts? On days, I get up at 5.50. On rest days it's about 8 but when on nights I wake up it's about 1-2pm. Would any of that matter?

Barefoot there is a section on this on the FF Q&A,
Hopefully that helps a bit!

Ah thanks. I actually caved in and ordered a thermometer that should arrive today. I will use it as of next cycle I think (currently CD19 so in limbo land and not worth starting yet) and just hope the time differences don't matter too much.

Hi Vik, this link is useful to adjust temps that you have taken earlier or later than normal
I don't think it's one that should be used everyday due to level of accuracy but is good for one offs x

Im getting really annoyed with FF. Ive taken my temps for 4 days between 5-6am (when i wake up for a wee) and i have got 2 solid blue and two open blue circles. Example being yesterday was 5.55am which gave a solid circle and this morning 6.00am which gave an open blue cirucle. WTF, its five minutes difference for gods sake. Im already losing patience with the effin thing.

Did you enter any other data into it on the days you got the open circles? If you listed any other symptoms or external factors then that too may of given FF a reason to doubt the temp rather than just it being at the wrong time

Can you just tell a porky pie and say they were all taken at 6am?

PS no other data was entered. Just temp and time. It's done it again thisorning but that was taken at 7.30 when I finally woke up! Out of 7 I only have 2 solid circles. I will carry on with this cycle giving the right times and see what the deal is with ovulation. Stupid thing.
