We have been trying to conceive for 7 months now and chart very consistently. I have always taken oral temps, but today I got a lower temp than I thought I should (I am 6 days post ovulation) so I took it vaginally just to see. Well, it was higher so now I am wondering if I should be taking them vaginally.
Also, if I do begin taking them vaginally, is it going to mess up my chart? Should I wait and begin vaginal temps next month or can I start now? I wouldn't be so quick to jump to this, but I recently had a thermometer that was reading really low and switched to the one I use now.
Just wondering if anyone had some input, ideas or been there/done that advice. Thanks in advance!!!
i started vaginally temping a month and half ago (im halfway through this cycle) and found it to be a MUCH more reliable indicator as sometimes i sleep with my mouth open and that cools down my temp. Also, if I have a stuffy nose I am not struggling to breathe while temping!
Thanks for the replies and ideas!!
Sorry to jump in. Just been searching thru some temping threads. I was wondering if taking temp vaginally will be more accurate if I sleep with an extra blanket occasionally. I am wondering because I did sleep with an extra blanket a few times in the past couple weeks and am wondering if that is what is giving me some strange spikes. I keep bouncing up to 97.7 and then down to 97.2 the next day...about 3 times now....the last 2 days I have been at 97.4 and 97.3. I am at the end of my cycle so maybe my hormones were just trying to stabilize.
