Question...bbt & ovulation

  • I have also posted this question on the general TTC board:

    Does anyone know if my body temp will still rise (shift) if I have NOT ovulated?
    I am asking b/c I did experience the thermal shift, but have been using OPKs all month and never once did they indicate that I was about to ovulate.
    I wasn't sure if your temp still rises regardless of whether or not you ovulate.

    Thanks!!

  • I believe that the temp rises in response to progesterone, which is produced in quantity after ovulation. That would make me say yes, if your temp goes up, then you ovulated.

    However, there are lots of other things that can effect BBT that way, having a fever, being more active prior to taking your temp, sleeping in a warmer room or under more blankets, drinking alcohol, having an overactive thyroid, certain medications, the list goes on. Add into that the fact that ovulation predictors don't work the same for everyone, and there is always a chance that you could get hold of a bad test.

    My advice is watch your temps to see if they stay up and check out your other fertility signs like mucus and cervical position.

  • That's why I was hoping to see your chart--it helps to analyze other symptoms than just temperature. Are you checking your CP and CM?
