Help with these temperatures....

I have been taking chlomid for 3 months.  I don't know much about the BBT.  I have had some odd temps lately.  (Or atleast they seem odd to me)  I'll just give you an 8 day scenario.  Feb 1st 97.4, Feb. 2nd 97.9, next 97.7, 98, 98.3, dip to 97.7, 97.5, and back up to 98.1 today.  Like I said I'm no expert on these temps.  Could someone just give a simple explaination?
*Use as open forum*
Thanks ladies!!
*Hoping for baby #1*

Can you give some more details?  How many DPO are you?  Or is that what you are trying to figure out?  The temps you put don't seem unusual to me.  They seem to be about average for the LP.  You can't really tell anything by individual temps.  You just want to make sure you have a triphasic chart.

Well last month the damn things were all over the place even before ovulation. This month it was a steady 97.7 which is high for me but the last 3 days have been 97.3 which is very normal for me pre-o. I finished Clomid 6 days ago and hope to O very soon. No LH surge yet but cm is begining to increase. Last month I did not O until 11 days after the last pill.  Holding off on a lot of BD until LH surge or some major EWCM.
Unsure if I told you but DH semen analysis came back as normal!!

This is month #7 ttc and I hope this month is it. It is getting so frustrating.

Alright, if these temperatures were after ovulation, then it could very well be triphasic which doesn't exactly mean you're pregnant, but there is a chance. That dip you experienced could be an implantation dip if these are temps after o (I got that dip too when I was temping and now 20 weeks preg).  If they are before ov., then I can't explain very well.  They shouldn't be rising like that, they should be steady, then dip, then spike and level out at a higher range.  I have heard Clomid makes your temps crazy though, it could be due to that.

i did read about dh!!! very cool.  what ever happened w/ your doc, did you get a new one?  I am not familiar w/ the whole clomid but i am all too familiar w/ the ttc for 7mths!!!  by this point its all too frustrating.  we almost gave up.  you are doing everything in your power.  i cannot wait for your bfp so i cant imagine how you feel (well, i can).  Its gonna happen.  Lately i have been going back and reading old posts and seeing the names change from ttc to bfp's and there is a cycle.  I pray this is your month.  love ya, jennifer

I am also on Clomid and have found out the temps on this med are very erratic and hard to follow.

how the heck are your temps lately???

OOPS!  I meant to say "Biphasic"  not "Triphasic".  If you do have a triphasic chart, that may mean pregnancy.  But don't panic if you only have 2 groups of temps.  That's what you really want.

I might like progesterone better.  The clomid makes me have hot flashes; however, they have gone away.  Thank God!!

I am currently 10dpo.  I will be 14 dpo on Sunday.  I can call my doctor tomorrow for progesterone levels.

harleygrl, how many mg chlomid are you taking?  How many months did it take you to get to the right level for ovulation?  I am just curious as to how long you have been ttc and it's been working.  I have been ttc almost 6 months but last month my prog level was 6.6 so I went up to 150mg.

I am on my second month of clomid 100mg days 3-7. Last month I tok 50 mg but had no clear ovulatuon shift so this month it has been increased. I do not know my prog level as my doctor automatically puts clomid users on progesterone. So 2 days after ovulation I then take 200mg of prometrium. If temps stay up and BFP I stay on it for first 12 weeks. If temps begn to fall I doscontinue it and have AF.   I have been ttc 7 months and was put on Clomid to shorten my cycles which were over 40 days. Last month it was 31 days so major improvement.


Since you do have low progesterone why does your doctor not put you on progesterone rather than Clomid?

I am having a lot more negative side effects on Clomid than on progesterone. But I will keep doing what I have got to do to get a BFP.

One of my questions was why are so many of you on prog and clomid?  I don't know much about the prog.  *Forgive my ignorance*

I had this discussion with my mom on Tuesday.  I'm not sure why he doesn't put me on progesterone.  My first month my prog level was 1.4 so the chlomid is definitely helping it to rise.

Your temps do seem to be a bit erratic to me.  They say that if you have 18 days of raised temps that's almost always an indicator of pregnancy.  Your's seem to flucuate quite a bit though.  It would be really hard to say at this point.  Unfortunately, you are probably just going to have to see if AF comes.  Fingers are crossed that you get a BFP instead!
