COMMENTS 

I used soy isoflavones from CD3-7, even though I o naturally I was trying to bring Ov day forward as I was having short luteal phases. I also o'd everyday from end of af to ov, and used no nail polish or aerosol products for 10 weeks. This was definitely a boy temp cycle as my pre-o temps were the lowest average of all my temps over 6 cycles.
