Basal body temperature low after 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

Then it can be as low as 97. Tsh testing will be the most sensitive test to diagnose hypothyroidism. ...Read more
