A 31-year-old female asked:

i had a drop in my temperature today below the coverline on my bbt chart at 5 days post ovulation does that mean i won't get a pregnant this cycle. ?

Temp is inaccurate: A drop in temperature is consistent with non-ovulation or a failure to conceive, but being late on your period and testing positive on a urine screen is the only other way to know if you're pregnant other than HCG levels
