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?

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

I had a drop in my temperature today below the coverline on my BBT chart at 5 days post ovulation does that mean I won't get a pregnant this cycle. ?

I had a drop in my temperature today below the coverline on my BBT chart at 5 days post ovulation does that mean I won't get a pregnant this cycle. ?

Temp is inaccurate: A drop in temperature is consistent with non-ovulation or a failure to conceive, but being late on your period and testing positive on a urine screen is the only other way to know if you're pregnant other than HCG levels ...Read more

Basal body temperature low after ovulation?

Basal body temperature low after ovulation?

Ok: Although I am not a big fan of basal body temperature charts, you are using them, than typically, the temp drops prior to ovulation and than peaks approximately 36 hours later. Problem is that by the time you get to peak, the egg is no longer viable or fertilize-able; and many women do not get the initial drop prior to ovulation. Good luck. ...Read more

Basal body temperature low after ovulation. Is this normal?

Basal body temperature low after ovulation. Is this normal?

Yes: Although bbts are not a very effective way of timing ovulation; in the classic situation, your temperature drops right before ovulation and than spikes approximately shortly later. The egg is estimated to live for 12-24 hours so once you see the temperature peak, it is probably to late and you have missed ovulation. The ovulation detection kits or odk are much more accurate in timing ovulation. ...Read more

My basal temperature has remained high for 26 days after ovulation. My period is 11 days late. Other than pregnancy, is there another reason for this?

My basal temperature has remained high for 26 days after ovulation. My period is 11 days late. Other than pregnancy, is there another reason for this?

Many possibilities: But for starters you do not say how "high" your BBT is? Most likely it's just daily fluctuation. As for pregnancy, i assume you've done a hpt? If you are 11 days late on your period how about doing a test to find out? ...Read more
