08:20 pm - Below coverline temp drop for 2 days but no period.

Here is my current chart (notify me if it doesn't show properly). The coverline is assigned at 97.67 (by manual override):


Note cycle day 28 and 29...
Normally, when your temperature drops towards the end of your luteal phase, you expect your period right?
Well, after 12 days of sustained temps above the coverline, my temperature has dropped below the coverline on 13DPO. I am now on 14 DPO (note: today's temp was taken later than usual, but it's still below the coverline!), and period has not yet arrived. My usual luteal phase length is 13-16 days with my temperature dropping below the coverline on the DAY OF or DAY BEFORE my period arrives.
This is the first time my temperature has dropped below the original coverline for TWO DAYS in a row with no period. This seems to have confused the fertility friend software and it removed my original red coverline and decided my chart is anovulatory. I've had to override the coverline again to 97.67. Also, note my CM data.

My question is NOT whether I'm pregnant or not, but would you consider this cycle anovulatory? Anyone else had this kind of pre-menstrual temp drop with delayed period?

Update: Period came on Day 30 (15 DPO).

It definitely looks ovulatory to me, the shift is pretty clear and lines up nicely with the cf statistics. I expect your period will start later today or tomorrow.
