Absolutely! Because a decrease in basal body temperature (BBT) may indicate miscarriage (1), some women choose to continue taking their temperature at least in the first trimester to confirm sustained temperature elevation (2). Always check with your doctor if you have any concerns or questions.
When does BBT drop if miscarriage?
All patients in the miscarriage group showed a drop in body temperature during the first week after the date of ovulation. The delivery group BBT was elevated in the first week without drooping (>0.15˚C) and reached 37˚C (Figure 3(a)-(e)).
Can you still be pregnant if your BBT drops?
While you’re more likely to see a one-day temperature drop if you’re pregnant, it’s not a definitive sign of being pregnant. You might see a small dip on your chart almost every month on the seventh or eighth day after you ovulate.
What does it feel like before a miscarriage?
What might I feel during a miscarriage? Many women have a miscarriage early in their pregnancy without even realising it. They may just think they are having a heavy period. If this happens to you, you might have cramping, heavier bleeding than normal, pain in the tummy, pelvis or back, and feel weak.
How do you know if you’ve miscarried before?
The symptoms are usually vaginal bleeding and lower tummy pain. It is important to see your doctor or go to the emergency department if you have signs of a miscarriage. The most common sign of a miscarriage is vaginal bleeding, which can vary from light red or brown spotting to heavy bleeding.
How do you tell if you have a missed miscarriage?
What are the symptoms of a missed abortion?
- vaginal bleeding.
- abdominal cramps or pain.
- discharged of fluid or tissue.
- lack of pregnancy symptoms.
How long does BBT stay elevated when pregnant?
Once your period starts, you’ll notice that the temperatures drop back down to their normal pre-ovulatory temperature levels. If you’re pregnant, you will not have a period and your temperatures will stay elevated. Your body’s post-ovulation phase (called the Luteal Phase) can only last for a maximum of about 16 days.
Will progesterone supplements raise your BBT?
Progesterone and CBT are linked because there is a ‘thermogenic’ reaction when progesterone is released, causing your temperature to rise.
Why does my BBT fluctuate so much?
The basal body temperature fluctuates daily, some days more than others. Changes in your routine can cause fluctuations as well – for example, changes in sleep, travel, and sickness can cause the basal body temperature to fluctuate.
How do I know I’m still pregnant?
The most conclusive way of finding out is to have an ultrasound done by your doctor or midwife to see baby’s heartbeat. I say “most” conclusive, because even with an ultrasound, if you are early in your pregnancy, it can be difficult to see or detect a heartbeat with 100% accuracy.
