Ovulation Temperature Chart In Celsius
BBT works OPK better: Basal body temperature with a special thermometer works, but the temperature rises after you ovulate. Ovulation predictor kits are more useful when ttc as they go positive 1-1.5 days before you ovulate, so you know your most fertile days. Store brands work; I like ovuquick - search online and get 9-pack not 6. If you have very irregular periods don't do bbt, see OB or fertility md to find out why. ...Read more
Check in the AM: Check your temperature every morning before getting out of bed. Look for a temperature drop, usually around d12-13, and then a half degree temperature rise, day 15-16. ...Read more
If I don't see a spike in my temperature after positive ovulation tests does that mean I didn't ovulate?
I'm just wondering, if your ovulating temperature is higher during that time does that increase the chance?
Is it possible to ovulate more than once within one long cycle? Mine was 56 days but temperature change suggested ovulation 2times
It is unlikely...: If you missed your period or was so slight that you assumed it was not a period, then clearly you could ovulate twice within the 56 days you are referring to. ...Read more
My temperature is different everyday and something different during the day it goes up and down why is that? It's to early for ovulation
Fluctuation of temp: Temperatures can fluctuate during the course of the day. It is usually low in the morning and goes up with activity during the course of the day. ...Read more
Not a fan of bbt: At ovulation a woman's temperature will rise 1/2 to 1 degree. In all my years as a practicing md & ovulating woman, I have encountered far more confusion re: this "method" than actual empowerment. It's hard to get that just right BBT every am for months at a time & then to properly discern a pattern- frequently when you ovulated becomes clear once its too late- just use the pee on a stick lh kits! ...Read more
Additional info: If you are tracking your morning basal body temperature then you would have to look at this number in relation to all the temperatures that preceded it to know if it's a spike for you, personally. There are tracking apps if that might help. ...Read more
Have you ever monitored your temperature throughout the whole day? What does it show around ovulation?
Variable results: Your body temperature will vary throughout the day depending if you're resting or if you're engaged in vigorous activity. Any type of activity will raise the body temperature somewhat. That is why when the basal body temperature charting is performed to determine ovulation, the temperatures are taken first thing in the morning before any activity. ...Read more
Does it can take up to three days after ovulation for the temperature to rise. Or the next day after ovulation?
Is there possibly an issue if my basal temperature rise (indicating ovulation) occurs 4 days after my first positive opk?
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
Is having BBT (basel temperature) consistently in the 96's pre-ovulation & low 97's post-ovulation to low? I've read BBT should be 97 pre & 98 post.
Unpredictable: Actually there has never been any evidence that checking temperatures improves pregnancy rates or correlates with fertility. Some believe it might decrease fertility by increasing stress. Regular sex still has a higher pregnancy rate than checking temperatures, mucous etc. And temperature is always relative to you normal temperature. ...Read more
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
I don't see that egg white thing during ovulation, but my temperature is always high. Do I ovulate?
Regular periods?: If you have regular periods you ovulate. If you do not, you may do better with an OPK. These natural family planning methods may not work well for you. ...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
4 days past ovulation and body basal temperature is 99.0. If conception occurs what is the body basal temperature needs to be at.
BBT: Basal body temperature needs to be charted for you as an individual. Take your BBT each morning throughout your cycle to detect the natural rise in your basal body temperature that occurs just after ovulation. This increase in your BBT is due to the hormone progesterone. One isolated temperature alone will not give you that information. ...Read more
I am trying to conceive. I ovulated on monday (confirmed by OPK and temperatures) and have had spotting for 4 days. Is this normal or worrisome?
Not normal.: Remember that opks and bbts indicate when you should ovulate but are at best suggestive of normal ovulation. Inadequate follicle and egg development and/or inappropriate hormone levels can occur without the opks or the bbts indicating anything abnormal. The atypical bleeding pattern suggests inadequate hormone support which in turn suggests inadequate egg maturation. ...Read more
