Can Your Basal Body Temperature Be Lower Than 37
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
Sure: Certainly, 37c corresponds to 98.6 f - normal human bodies can be several degrees up or down without being abnormal, and many factors including environment can affect this.
How soon after sex is an egg fertilized? How soon after fertilization will your basal body temperature rise and implatation bleeding appear?
Varies: The egg typical survives and awaits fertilization in the reproductive tract for up to 24 hours. Basal body temperature rises not from fertilization but from the increase in Progesterone as a result of the lh surge at the time of ovluation. This surge is what is detected in home ovulation predictor kits. Implantation bleeding is inconsistent sign of pregnancy but can occur 1week after fertilizes.

Early morning temp: The basal body temperature is the temperature your body is at when you first wake up, before you get moving for the day. We use it to check for when your body releases an egg. It can only be measured with a special thermometer which reads temperature at a more accurate scale.See 1 more doctor answer
Progesterone effect: After ovulation rise in Progesterone increases body temperature about 0.5 degrees c. Length of that rise in temperature indicates Progesterone production continues long enough (>8d is good). Better method of identifying ovulation before it takes place is the ovulation predictor kit (about 24 hours).
First a.m. awakening: Take your temperature first thing when you awaken in the morning before the first "pit stop" if possible then chart it or record it daily.
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. Not very accurate and very stressful for patients. If cycles are regular, 28 days then you most likely ovulate mid cycle, and if not, you should seek some help.
Not accurate: As you first wake up place a basal body thermometer underneath your tongue for approximately 3 minutes. A digital thermometer is easier and more convenient. Unfortunately basal body temperature taking is very confusing. Any type of movement or any type of activity prior to awakening in taking the temperature will falsely elevated the temperature. Also when the temperature has risen approximately .6 to 1° ovulation has already occurred.
BBT: 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 midway between the rise.
BBT: Probably normal but may also be due to your thermometer.
