Google hypothyroidism and BBT. You should find good information about your body temperature as it relates to hypothyroidism. If your waking temperature is consistently low, you are very likely hypothyroid. And even mild hypothyroidism can throw your body out of whack enough to not concieve.
Good luck!!! I am very much in your boat. I've just started treatment and am sure I'm not at the right level of medication yet. I just want my body functioning so that I can someday see a BFP!!!
I have been charting for several months, and the highest my coverline has ever been is 97.5. My highest temp has been a 98.3 (on progesterone supp at that point). I regularly go in the 96s.
Since one of the GPs I see has already dismissed this as an issue, should I try to see an RE? Would s/he be more receptive to looking into the links between the hypothyroid and my fertility issues? I'm mostly concerned about this as it effects my fertility and then the pregnancy. As I said above, I had a couple of complications with my only pregnancy that are linked to thyroid problems--notably IUGR. I do not want to go go through that again (or make another baby who will likely experience negative longterm effects from the condition). And I'm not going to be able to fall pregnant anyway until I get my LPD resolved, and the thyroid might be a contributing issue there.
Those of you who are new to all the thyroid stuff, please, please read http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/
The chances of getting good treatment seem to be slim, unless you educate yourself.....
