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.

Ovulation. Basal body temperatures may not be the most accurate way to confirm ovulation. If you have cycles every 28 days, it almost always take s14 days to prepare the egg for ovulation.

Not bad... But I do not have a lot of faith in basal temperature charting. I like my patients to use ovulation predictor kits with ultrasounds to monitor follicle size and growth.
