Basal Body Temperature What Should They Read When Youre Ovulating
Basal body temperature is the taking of the oral temperature first thing in the morning approximately at the same time before even getting out of bed to do anything. Around midcycle or so about 1 to 2 days after ovulation the temperature will rise approximately 0.8 - 1.0° above the baseline. This rise signifies potential ovulation. The actual ovulation usually occurred ...Read more
Not a fan of bbt: At ovulation a woman's temperature will rise 1/2 to 1 degree. In all my years as a practicing md & ovulating woman, I have encountered far more confusion re: this "method" than actual empowerment. It's hard to get that just right BBT every am for months at a time & then to properly discern a pattern- frequently when you ovulated becomes clear once its too late- just use the pee on a stick lh kits! ...Read more
When charting basal body temperature each morning to detect ovuation, what type of temperature change would let you know you are ovulating?

Can Clomid (clomiphene) cause triphasic basal body temperature charts (when not pregnant)? If so, how?
Biphasic temp: Basal body temps are usually less than 98 degrees prior to ovulation and above 98 after ovulation. That is a normal biphasic temp chart indicating ovulation. Clomid (clomiphene) should increase the chances of ovulation and the likelihood of a biphasic chart. No "triphasic" chart that I am aware of. Sometimes Clomid (clomiphene) may cause a little bump in temp above 98 while taking the medicine in the first half of cycle. ...Read more

First AM Temp: Temp before getting up in the morning. Should be done in bed prior to sitting up. This temperature rises about 1/2 degree after ovulation.

My basal body temperature is within the range of 35.8 to 36.1 during non-ovulation period. How could it be so low? How to increase body temperature?

The requirement is that the BBT must have been consistently charted over the previous months and baseline temperature has then been established to make that determination. ...Read more
4 days past ovulation and body basal temperature is 99.0. If conception occurs what is the body basal temperature needs to be at.
BBT: Basal body temperature needs to be charted for you as an individual. Take your BBT each morning throughout your cycle to detect the natural rise in your basal body temperature that occurs just after ovulation. This increase in your BBT is due to the hormone progesterone. One isolated temperature alone will not give you that information. ...Read more
Have you ever monitored your temperature throughout the whole day? What does it show around ovulation?
Variable results: Your body temperature will vary throughout the day depending if you're resting or if you're engaged in vigorous activity. Any type of activity will raise the body temperature somewhat. That is why when the basal body temperature charting is performed to determine ovulation, the temperatures are taken first thing in the morning before any activity. ...Read more
