Anovulation: When you don't ovulate you still produce estrogen. Ovulation stabilizes, prepares for pregnancy and cuses a normal period when it doesn't happen. If you go long enough without ovulating any bleeding pattern can follow. Abnormal bleeding can also be pregnancy related. Treating withprogesterone can fix it. ...Read more

Possible: There are a number of things that effect ovulation, and a number of things that may effect the temperature response. If the d and c was for a miscarriage it may take longer to ovulate after because of hormonal changes. ...Read more

My lh surge was from 10pm cd18 to 11am cd 19. Did i ovulated on cd 19 or cd 20, my bbt chart says cd 20 and i got a temp rise cd 21?

Either one: Based on this information you could have ovulated on either day. It is not usually clinically important to narrow it down to the exact moment of ovulation. Just have sex around that time. A one day discrepancy is not going to make much difference. ...Read more

Spotting day 10/11, + OPK day 17/18, spotting day 19/20/21, BBT temp still not risen. Ovulated yet? What's happening? Not experienced annovulation

Spotting day 10/11, + OPK day 17/18, spotting day 19/20/21, BBT temp still not risen. Ovulated yet? What's happening? Not experienced annovulation

Maybe: Best test for ovulation is a blood Progesterone level of > 3 ng/ml. Other than pregnancy (which is proof positive) the other tests are less specific. I think that bbts are kinda cruel so rarely suggest that my patients do them. Opks have been shown to only increase patient anxiety and not improve chance of pregnancy. So for patients with regular cycles i suggest sex on cyclec days 10/12/14/16. ...Read more

Increase not related: If the the test states you are ovulating and later your temp.rises ,it's not related to ovulation .If temp elevation is sustained as in 2nd half of cycle ,this could be pregnancy. ...Read more

I measure bbt. I had 3 risen temperatures for 3 days after ovulation (14th day) & then low temp for 5 days until today. Is it normal? What to expect?

Normal: What you described is normal variation during a menstrual cycle and you should expect a normal next cycle unless you engaged in sex at the fertile period, in which case you could be pregnant. If you miss your period, do a home test 4-5 days after missed period, use first morning urine and follow the instructions in the kit, carefully. ...Read more

Can i get pregnant the day after ovulation once i see the body temp rise?

Yes: In fact, because sperm can live a few days inside your body, you can get pregnant anytime from a few days before to a few days after ovulation. You don't have to wait for exact day of ovulation in order to try to get pregnant. If you're trying to get pregnant, start taking prenatal vitamins to minimize your risk for neural tube defects eg spina bifida. Otherwise, use protection, preferably 2 forms. ...Read more

Does a rise in temperature confirm ovulation occured. Opk + and temp high day 13-24 of cycle, 6 months negative hpt?

Short luteal phase: With a +opk ovulation happens in 24 hrs and your temperature rises. A triphasic chart has 3 levels of temperatures:pre-ovulation (97.0 to 97.5), post-ovulation or luteal (97.6 to 98.6), and then a 2nd rise around 7-10 days after ovulation (3/10's - 4/10's over the luteal high). Some women with these charts turn out to be pregnant. But many do not. They should last 14 days, yours is 8 which is short. ...Read more

Unclear: It is not clear exactly what you are asking here. If you are doing ovulation kits then you do not also need to be doing basal body temps. The ovulation kit is more accurate. ...Read more

Is a clear temp shift and sustained high temp on a BBT chart a definite indicator of ovulation? Can progestrone level rise w/o the egg released?

Is a clear temp shift and sustained high temp on a BBT chart a definite indicator of ovulation? Can progestrone level rise w/o the egg released?

YES: Usually a degee or more mid-cycle spike in temp ( measured with an accurate thermometer) is suggestive of both ovulation and a fertile time to conceive. Home testing kits are also fairly accurate. ...Read more

TTC using opk's, bbt, freq sex. Pos opk 7 days ago but no temp rise. Does this mean no ovulation or pregnancy? Can pregnancy occur w/o bbt rise?

TTC using opk's, bbt, freq sex.  Pos opk 7 days ago but no temp rise. Does this mean no ovulation or pregnancy?  Can pregnancy occur w/o bbt rise?

BBT challenging: The use of basal body temperature is highly inaccurate and not typically recommended in someone using a home ovulation kit. If your ovulation kit indicated ovulation then measuring BBT is not going to be helpful. A day 21 Progesterone test can be done to confirm ovulation occurred if you have doubt. ...Read more

4 days of positive opk's from Saturday. Got ovulation pain sat sun mon. No ovulation pattern on BBT chart. No pcos. Could I o without a temp rise. ?

4 days of positive opk's from Saturday. Got ovulation pain sat sun mon. No ovulation pattern on BBT chart. No pcos. Could I o without a temp rise. ?

Yes, I suggest: not doing both BBT and OPK in the same cycles. they usually contradict each other, and the OPK always beats the BBT. I also recommend strongly with the OPK you "try" (have sex) when it first turns positive; there's no good reason to keep testing afterwards to see how many days are positive. Good wishes, hope this helps. ...Read more

Is it possible to get a positive OPK and a BBT temp rise but still not ovulate? Cycle 7 trying to concieve after miscarriage (caught first time then)

Yes: It's possible, but not too likely, especially if your periods are mostly regular. Suggestion: i'd skip the BBT if you're doing opk, it doesn't add much and harder to interpret in a meaningful way. ...Read more
