Another FF temping question

After FF has determined your O date, how long will your temps stay high if you are not pregnant?  I am currently at 7 DPO, and my temps are still high...should I expect them to start dropping soon if I am not pregnant? Or will they stay high until AF?

according to FF:


If there is no pregnancy, your temperature will stay elevated for 10-16 days, until the corpus luteum regresses.At this time, unless there is a pregnancy, progesterone levels drop dramatically and you get your period. Your temperature normally drops at this time as well, though it is not unusual to have erratic or high temperatures during your period.


so I guess at 7 DPO, still having the elevated temp doesn't necessarily mean you're pregnant...but I'm keepng fingers crossed for you anyway!

Mine would usually drop 14 dpo.  (This can vary between women though, but it usually don't vary much for the same woman between cycles).  Then I would usually have AF a day or so after.
