When does ovulation temperature dip occur in relation to LH surge?

When does ovulation temperature dip occur in relation to LH surge?

After ovulation: The lh surge will occur about 24 to 36 hours before ovulation. By about 24c hours after ovulation the Progesterone levels begin to rise - that rise in Progesterone causes the basal body temperature to increase about one half of a degree fahrenheit.

Low body temperature dip, ovulating?

Probably Not: Usually when you ovulate your basal body temp rises. After ovulation Progesterone is increased which would cause a rise in temp.

Random temperature elevations when not ovulating?

Random temperature elevations when not ovulating?

It's normal: Basal body temperature fluctuates vastly due to many different reasons. This is why I tell my fertility patients to not take their temps!

How do I use my temperature to know if I'm ovulating?

How do I use my temperature to know if I'm ovulating?

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.

How can you follow your temperature to know when ovulation is occurring?

How can you follow your temperature to know when ovulation is occurring?

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.

If I don't see a spike in my temperature after positive ovulation tests does that mean I didn't ovulate?

If I don't see a spike in my temperature after positive ovulation tests does that mean I didn't ovulate?

Test wins: Basal body temperature measurements are very inaccurate. You do not need to be doing them if you are using a home ovulation kit. The home kit is much more accurate.

Is it possible to ovulate more than once within one long cycle? Mine was 56 days but temperature change suggested ovulation 2times

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.

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

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.

Hormones: Hormonal surges with ovulation can cause a mild spike in your body temp.

My basal temperature is 97.07 I'm I ovulating?

My basal temperature is 97.07 I'm I ovulating?

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.

Lower temperature after ovulation, should I be concerned?

Lower temperature after ovulation, should I be concerned?

No ovulation: If a woman's body temperature is lower after supposed ovulation, she did not ovulate.

Basal body temperatures-- what should they be when your ovulating?

Basal body temperatures-- what should they be when your ovulating?

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!

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.

Why is my body temperature always low right before my ovulating?

Why is my body temperature always low right before my ovulating?

Estrogen: Estrogen is at higher levels prior to ovulation. Progesterone released by the corpus luteum of the ovary after ovulation raises body temperature.

Is there possibly an issue if my basal temperature rise (indicating ovulation) occurs 4 days after my first positive opk?

Is there possibly an issue if my basal temperature rise (indicating ovulation) occurs 4 days after my first positive opk?

No: I do not depend on ovulation predictor kits. There is too much variability with them and they are not as accurate as we think.

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.
