Does Your Body Temperature Drop Or Rise When Ovulating
Basal temperature: Your temperature is not lower at ovulation it is your baseline temperature. After ovulation you have an increase in temperature by about 1/2 to 1 degree caused by progesterone. If you are not pregnant your tempaerature will return to the basal level when your next period starts. Some people note a slight drop in temp just prior to ovulation but this is not consistent. ...Read more
When charting basal body temperature each morning to detect ovuation, what type of temperature change would let you know you are ovulating?
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
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
Now is the 10th month after married. Measure basal body temperature, only found 3 months have higher temperature after ovulation. Wish to have a baby.
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

My body temperature rises very high for no apparent reason. I has only happened twice about 8 weeks apart?
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
