Can morning low basal body temperature be a sign of hypothyroidism mine between 96.08-97.7 for the last 18 mornings (before rising).

Remember, 98.6 is average, normal can be 1 degree above or below. The temperature normally goes down at night and is lowest about 4:00-6:00 A.M. About 2 hours before awakening. Then it can be as low as 97. Tsh testing will be the most sensitive test to diagnose hypothyroidism. ...Read more

The ovulation detection kits or odk are much more accurate in timing ovulation. ...Read more
