My acupuncturist and so many others swear that high temps post ovulation can indicate pregnancy. I disagree. Almost every cycle, I have high temps during the luteal phase and since my pregnancy in December followed by its loss, I have never gotten a positive pregnancy test even with historically high temps. Here’s a screen shot of my current cycle. You can see that I have pretty high post-ovulation temperatures.
Well, it is a little hard to see my temps because the image is so small but this morning’s temp, the last on the right side, is 98.8. That big temp dip around 6dpo(?), I usually don’t get a dip in my cycle but its an open circle because I woke up super early – so early that I couldn’t adjust it.
And, so you can see what a previous full cycle looks like, here’s my cycle from last month. It was a medicated IUI cycle and I took progesterone after ovulation.
So, because of my history of high temps, I just can’t trust that mine are an indication of pregnancy. Do you trust yours?
