Ovulation Tracker, Please Help!

I was just wondering if someone could PLEASE help me understand this thing. Mind you this is my very first time doing this and I'm already not getting it. lol.  I didn't start taking my temps until a couple of days after ovulation ( I know I should've sooner but I didn't think about doing it at all) and I was just wondering what is "normal" as far as the temps go?   Mine look like they can't make up their mind if they want to go up or down. I know I've only been doing it for about 8 or 9 days now but they look as confused as I am. lol. I saw a chart on "anovulatory" and mine is starting to look that way. I guess I'm scared of this being my first month trying and it's already looking bad(well to me). I've tried to conceive for 6 yrs the old fashion way, no charts, no temps and no ovulation kits and got NOTHING so that's why I'm doing this now plus my fertility dr. wants me to do it.  I would really really appreciate any help.  Thank you so much! :)

Chart looks ok.  Just make sure you are taking your temp first thing in the morning, before getting out of bed as soon as you wake up.  Temp will start to  go up as your body starts preparing for ovulation.  Usually in the high 97's before ovulation and then hits 98's after ovulation.  If temp stays up, you are pregnant, when they start coming down period arrives shortly after.  When I first started medhelp I would look at others charts to learn as well.  I have read the book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" to learn more about chart too!  

You can take a look at my chart, and in June, my dr. told me I was going to have anovulation cycle, so I stopped opk but still took temp.  Then, after my period I ovulated a week later!!  However, you are too young to be having anovulatory cycles yet.  

Good luck!
