Forgive me if this is an oft-asked question, but I'm wondering if my temps are much lower than everyone else's. My pre-ovulatory temps range from 96.5-97.0, and my luteal phase temps range from about 97.1-97.8. Is this 'normal' for anyone else? I'm wondering if this indicates a problem ...
I do have hypothyroidism, but I've been on synthroid for this since 1997, and my levels are always normal (most recent test was about two months ago and I get checked every six months). Bloodwork done in April indicated my hormone levels are fine. And I'm FAMing and I do experience a thermal shift (accompanied by a fairly consistent CF pattern, which includes a few days of EW). So, as far as I can tell, everything is okay. Any thoughts?
I am, however, significantly overweight, so I'm wondering if maybe some excess estrogen is supressing my temps?? Hmmm ...
Well, any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
My best to everyone!
