I have been taking clomid and this is the first month I have ovulated (confirmed by a blood test) and the first month I have had a temp elevation. I had some spotting last night when I wiped and some spotting this morning when I wiped. But yesterday and today my temp is still elevated. I should start my period in the next 2-3 days (have 30-31 day cycles)  . When should I expect my temp to drop? It is common for me to spot before my actual period?

I don't know if it's common for you to spot before AF, but a lot of women do. Some women have a temp drop right before AF, some during AF, and some stay elevated all throughout AF... so it's hard to say, I know that's not really the answer you were looking for, but like anything else, it depends!Stick out tongue

I've only been charting for 4 cycles - and my temp has dropped the day before AF and the day AF started and the day after AF started.  So I agree with PP that it varies :)

I don't spot and I've never taken clomid but my temp drops the very morning of my menses. So I wake up with a very low temp and run to the bathroom basically.
