hie all

my post o temps are lower than my pre o temps and are below the coverline even though the temp went down on o day then started to rise after.on o day it was 36.1 and next day it was 36.2 then 36.3 and 36.3 again.the only way i know i oed is becoz i had a positive ov test.

i had a miscarriage in june at 8 weeks and on the day my period would have been due had i not been pregnant!!does this mean anything????please help me.low progesterone perhps?????
Yvette Smith, MD, MPH responded:
Not all tests are useful for all women. If you ovulation kit is positive, I believe you ovulated. I would not worry about the temps. As added reassurance, you could ask your doctor to draw a progesterone level one week after your ovulation kit turns positive. I would only do it once to confirm the kit.

I didn't follow your question about the miscarriage so I can't comment. Can you restate?

Thanks for replying.about my miscarriage i had no spotting or anything for the 8 weeks i was pregnant but my bleeding or miscarriage started the exact day my period would have been due had i not been my question is is this coincidence or does it mean something?the tissue wasnt tested since it was my first and no bloods were done.

thanks again

so i was thinking it could be because of low progesterone levels hence the low post ovulation temperatures.
