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

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

When you exercise, your body temperature rises. Does this make your melatonin levels decrease?

When you exercise, your body temperature rises. Does this make your melatonin levels decrease?

Actually variable: Effects. The effect of exercise on melatonin levels is variable depending on the timing of the exercise during the day and the intensity. Late night intense exercise has been demonstrated to lead to an acute increase in melatonin levels, not so true with late night low intensity exercise. While daytime exercise (whether high or low intensity) seems to have limited effect on melatonin. ...Read more

High temp: Not sure what you mean by "high" but if over 101 f and it occurs again you need to be evaluated for a possible occult (hidden) infectious process. It is preferable to have blood tests (including possible blood cultures) at the time your fever is spiking, so if it happens again, be seen immediately (same day). ...Read more

Every night my body temperature rises. I don't feel the warmth of my own body but other people do. I physically heat up. Should I get checked? Causes?

Sure: Invest in a good thermometer to track your temperature and make sure you just don't "feel" hot. If you do indeed have a fever, it is your body telling you something is wrong. Then bring in the readings to your dr. And get an evaluation to find out why your temp is high. Common causes are underlying infections, and possible thyroid disorders can cause temp fluctuations. Best wishes. ...Read more
