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?

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

Basal body temperatures-- what should they be when your ovulating?

Basal body temperatures-- what should they be when your ovulating?

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

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

Is it bad to ovulate on day 5 of my cycle? I have confirmed through basal body temperature that I do occasionally. We are trying to conceive a child.

Is it bad to ovulate on day 5 of my cycle? I have confirmed through basal body temperature that I do occasionally. We are trying to conceive a child.

Ovulation: Basal body temperatures may not be the most accurate way to confirm ovulation. If you have cycles every 28 days, it almost always take s14 days to prepare the egg for ovulation. I would add to the temperature chart a urine ovulation predictor kit, available over the counter. If your cycles are less or more frequent than 28 days, you may need an evaluation for see why. ...Read more

Does ovulation symptoms (cervical mucus, cervical position, basal temperature) r same even for pcos patients? Does ovulation predictor kit helps?

Does ovulation symptoms (cervical mucus, cervical position, basal temperature) r same even for pcos patients? Does ovulation predictor kit helps?

PCOS: Pcos has a variety of different symptoms. One of the main symptoms of this syndrome is a lack of ovulation. That is why pcos patients sometimes have infertility, which is difficult conceiving. Ovulation testing kits are a good way to see if you are ovulating, and having pcos should not interfere with the test unless you are not ovulating. Other symptoms will be the same if truely ovulating. ...Read more

I measure bbt. I had 3 risen temperatures for 3 days after ovulation (14th day) & then low temp for 5 days until today. Is it normal? What to expect?

Normal: What you described is normal variation during a menstrual cycle and you should expect a normal next cycle unless you engaged in sex at the fertile period, in which case you could be pregnant. If you miss your period, do a home test 4-5 days after missed period, use first morning urine and follow the instructions in the kit, carefully. ...Read more

Is having BBT (basel temperature) consistently in the 96's pre-ovulation & low 97's post-ovulation to low ? I've read BBT should be 97 pre & 98 post.

Is having BBT (basel temperature) consistently in the 96's pre-ovulation & low 97's post-ovulation to low ? I've read  BBT should be 97 pre & 98 post.

Unpredictable: Actually there has never been any evidence that checking temperatures improves pregnancy rates or correlates with fertility. Some believe it might decrease fertility by increasing stress. Regular sex still has a higher pregnancy rate than checking temperatures, mucous etc. And temperature is always relative to you normal temperature. ...Read more

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 ...Read more
