Can the switch back to standard time cause higher BBTs? I noticed yesterday and today that my temps were higher than Saturday. Also, does taking medication (antibiotics, painkillers, etc.) affect your BBT? I had oral surgery Saturday morning and have to take an antibiotic and two painkillers. I was wondering if taking these medications could be affecting my BBT. Thanks in advance!

That is my understanding, that your temps will be higher because of the hour difference. Since you temped an hour later, the temps could be higher. I read this somewhere in my internet research. Hope this helps.
