Basal temperature

Basal temperature should be measured every morning before getting out of bed. The thermometer must be prepared in the evening. If you get out of bed to bring a thermometer, the temperature will be inaccurate. Basal temperature is measured in the rectum. Some manuals recommend measuring it in the mouth or vagina, but these methods are incorrect. Temperature measurement is carried out for 10 minutes, then the data are entered in the table.

The level of basal temperature reflects changes in hormonal levels that occur throughout the entire monthly cycle.On the first day of the cycle, the basal temperature reaches approximately 36.5 degrees. Closer to ovulation (about a day before it), the temperature decreases. With the onset of ovulation, the temperature usually exceeds 37 degrees and remains at this level until the end of the cycle. Such changes occur in a healthy woman who does not have hormonal disorders.

What is the basal temperature during pregnancy? During pregnancy, the basal temperature of a woman exceeds 37 degrees, regardless of whether it is measured at the beginning of the cycle or at the end. You can judge pregnancy by basal temperature until the 20th week. Then the temperature will decrease and its diagnostic value will disappear.

All this is so, because the hormone hCG, in the presence of which the second band appears, is produced only 7-8 days after conception. On day 12, the hormone concentration increases, and the test immediately reacts to it. 2-3 days before the beginning of the month, you can try to make a test. It is very important to purchase a test with high sensitivity and make it in the morning.In order for the concentration of hCG in the urine to be sufficient for the test, it is better not to urinate for 6 hours before the procedure.

If the result turned out to be negative or the strip appeared weak, you need to repeat the test after a few days.
