    I have started temping. But because I havent had AF since Jan FF wont let me chart.
    Anyways I have just been testing the past couple of days and today is 35.75 and yesterday was 36.18.
    Surely being this low today isnt okay?

    Any advice. Is my thermometer broke? Or am I doing it wrong?

    Hi LD, my temps would range from 35.9 to 36.6. Before ovulation my temps are below 36.2 usually dip to a low of 35.9 on day of ovulation. After ovulation temps are 36.3 to 36.6 when I got my bfps temps went up to 36.8.

    I have a treated underactive thyroid when my thyroid goes underactive my daily temps are lower. In some cases a consistently low BBT can indicate an issue with you thyroid have you had your TSH, Free T4, Free T3 and Thyroid antibodies tested?

    Are you orally temping? I found vaginal temping much more realiable and accurate as there's less influence from air temp etc xx

    Hi LD I would definitely get it checked symptoms of an underactive thyroid
    (1) irregular periods / no periods / heavy periods
    (2) feeling cold
    (3) thinning of hair
    (4) weight gain
    (5) feeling tired even after a good nights sleep
    For TTC your TSH should be around 2.0
