Hi all. So I have been charting/temping for about 6 months now. We are TTC #2. Anyway, my O date has been erratic to say the least however my temps are rather consistent. They are usually below 97 pre O and above 97 post O. Very rarely do they even get past 97.7. But if you look at my chart my pre O temps were slightly elevated (I attribute it to the Origins Multi I was taking) and my post O temps are skyrocketing. This morning I charted my highest temp ever! Which went up from a pretty high temp yesterday. Now I am not a pro at this and have little experience. Why would my temps be so elevated? What pushes temps up like that? I know that high temps are an indication of pregnancy sometimes but it has to be too soon for that in my cycle. I haven't done anything different this cycle than the others aside from that Origins vitamin I took pre O to try to bump up O date (tired of late O's). Otherwise everything is the same, no meds, no illness, just natural TTC.

Any help is greatly appreciated. TIA!

I don't know anything about the supplement you took but if it's something that's supposed to help with ovulation, I'm going to hazard a guess that it may be causing your temps to be a bit higher this cycle.

Hi, You can also have low temps if you sleep with your mouth open in the night I believe. Also try and make sure you get 6 hours of sleep before you check your temp and try to test around the same time every day. There are some herbs which can help you with low thyroid so if you do test and come up low, you can speak to a naturopath who should be able to advise you. Apparently if your body temp is warm closer to ovulation it makes it better for the fertilisation and implantation to occur, so cold temps are not that good, Indian Ayurveda to has herbal formula's that can deal with this and support your luteal phase naturally...Good Luck, Moonshine
