everyone's temps will be different. your temp should rise after ovulation and continue to rise when your period is due. usually when your period starts, your temp will drop... it will do the reverse if you are pregnant.

It's used when you take the temperature to find out when you are ovulating and means Basal Metabolic Temperature aka Basal Body Temperature (BBT).

It is possible that you are pregnant. A decrease in BBT could indicated a decrease in progesterone. You need to have enough progesterone in your system to sustain a pregnancy, so if you think you are pregnant and your BBT has dropped, you should see a doctor asap (you can increase your progesterone level with pills or injections, but you may miscarry if your temperature remains too low).

It is possible that your BBT did increase but the thermometer had a mis-read. You would need to have an increase in BBT to show that you ovulated, and you need to ovulate to get pregnant, and then the BBT needs to stay high to sustain a pregnancy. The increase doesn't have to be much (as small as .2 above the coverline can be considered, I believe).

Hi, A Womans basal body temperature (BBT) is NOT a indication of pregnancy. BBT will rise slightly during ovulation, illness, due to activity or period. BBT it itself is definitely not a indication of pregnancy. Indication of pregnancy is: * Missed period. * Nauseous. * Headache *Breast tenderness *Abdominal cramping. *Increase in cervical mucus.

Your BBT needs to stay high in order to sustain a pregnancy, at least in early pregnancy.
