Hello -
No this isn't true. Some women do claim their temperature increases by a few degrees when they conceive but there is no actual medical proof of this. During the evening the basal body temperature will of increased. The BBT (Basal body temp) will also increase during your ovulation time, period time, after having hot food or drink and when your feeling a bit under the weather.
A increase in temperature isn't exactly pregnancy related hun. Wait till your period is due. If it doesnt arrive - then test.
Trish - you seem to be misguided and I'm afraid you are wrong, or rather your answer is incomplete and ill informed. Your temperature can of course indicate pregnancy IF there is a substained rise for 16 days or more past your ovulation, that does not drop or plummet. Visit fertilityfriend.com a site that tells you everything about charting your way to conception. Of course other things can influence your temperature, BUT if you take your temperature at the same time each day BEFORE you get out of bed and move around, aswell as charting other fertility signs like Cervical Fluid and Cervical Position, you will feel empowered to learn all about the ups and downs of your own body, an overall picture will form giving you very accurate information about fertile times, non fertile times, and indicators that pregnancy has been achieved. Of course you take a HPT to confirm this. I would strongly advise you and the asker of this question to visit fertilityfriend.com so that you can improve your knowledge and better advise others in future. It is medically proven by the way, ask your doctor. Have fun !

Why is the surface temperature on Venus so much higher than that on earth?

Venus' atmosphere consists mainly of Co2 (Carbon dioxide), while Earth's atmosphere is Co2 and oxygen. Co2 is much denser than oxygen, so it holds more heat from the sunlight. This trapping of heat by gases is known as the "greenhouse effect", and while we are experiencing a small amount of it on (MORE)

No. It depends on the context. If you are studying solar gain in a building then the room temperature is a dependent variable. If you are studying the effects of diseases, the body temp is a dependent variable.

Increased temperature usually results in?

An increase in the kinetic energy of the molecules that a materiel is formed from. This can lead to a softening of the material or if enough energy is supplied the melting of the material. It can also cause chemical reactions which may alter the material. Both these processes occur in metam (MORE)
