How long before AF arrives does your temp typically drop?
I usually stop temping 3-4 DPO, but I thought I'd start up again today (12 DPO), to avoid wasting another test. Temp was still high, which is positive IMO. But, I'm not sure when it would drop - the day AF arrives, the day before? Any advice/experiences?
I've had similar experiences. More often then none, day of af.
For me, it usually drops the day it starts if I remember correctly.

I've never had AF start on a high temp. But, I've found I tend to start dropping a few days before and just trend down. Sometimes its 2-3 days before. others, it's just the day before or day of.
For me it drops the day before AF starts. With my first pregnancy, I wouldn't let myself test until the day before AF as long as my temperature was still high. I ended up testing twice in the 7 months. Once, my luteal phase extended a day (stayed that way for future cycles) and the next time I was pregnant.
With DD2, I did have a dip on the day I tested but it was still way over coverline.
