Basal body temperature low after ovulation?

Basal body temperature low after ovulation?

Ok: Although I am not a big fan of basal body temperature charts, you are using them, than typically, the temp drops prior to ovulation and than peaks approximately 36 hours later. Problem is that by the time you get to peak, the egg is no longer viable or fertilize-able; and many women do not get the initial drop prior to ovulation. Good luck. ...Read more

Basal body temperature low after ovulation. Is this normal?

Yes: Although bbts are not a very effective way of timing ovulation; in the classic situation, your temperature drops right before ovulation and than spikes approximately shortly later. The egg is estimated to live for 12-24 hours so once you see the temperature peak, it is probably to late and you have missed ovulation. The ovulation detection kits or odk are much more accurate in timing ovulation. ...Read more

BBT: Basal body temperature needs to be charted for you as an individual.

This increase in your BBT is due to the hormone progesterone. One isolated temperature alone will not give you that information. ...Read more

If a woman exhibits consistent "fallback rise" BBT chart w/2dpo temp dip, will IUI on 1dpo reduce chance of fertilization b/c hormone change day after?

If a woman exhibits consistent "fallback rise" BBT chart w/2dpo temp dip, will IUI on 1dpo reduce chance of fertilization b/c hormone change day after?

Confusing: Sorry, it's kinda confusing what you are asking: "fallback rise" does not mean anything medically specific to me. Bbt is a sketchy way to time IUI under best of circumstances; i can say that 1 day after a certain ovulation (which BBT is not) would likely be late for conception. Iui strategy favors inseminating a little early rather than a little late. ...Read more
