What might cause a bbt rise before ovulation?

Postby sugarchik » Sun Feb 17, 2013 1:42 pm

Hi ladies!

I think I've read around the net about things that could cause a higher (or erratic) BBT like traveling or different waking times, illness, poor sleep etc. But I haven't had too much or that.

But I just want to get your opinions on why you think it might, what you've read or experienced for yourself.

I'm trying to figure out why my temps are higher than maybe they should be. My other symptoms it's clear I haven't O'd yet. So any clue is appreciated! :)

Just a shot in the dark, but have you changed anything like extra blankets, space heater?

Not really. Except I normally sleep with a fan on but haven't since Thursday night. The spike didn't come until saturday morning though.

I'm trying not to over anylize every little thing I've done because anything different seems too small to make such a big impact.

Try sleeping with your fan on and see if it goes back down.

Lol thank you! Sounds like the obvious thing to do right? But I'm not home. And my fan is. I'm dog/house sitting. And their house I think is cooler than mine anyway.

Plus, the first 2 night of dog/house sitting didt not raise my temp dramatically like Saturday's temp. Thata mainly why I'm so confused. :? Thank you for trying to help! I do appreciate it! :)

In my question, I was curious kind of wodering if anyone else has ever had this or read anything different from what I've seen. But it could just be freak temps! Lol who knows.

Lol I guess not! :) but I thank you for the thought! It would normally make sense. And you are smart to think that. Some women would be like "oh yeah! I never thought of that!" and it would really be the case! Haha

I did have about 4oz or less of an adult beverage the night before and was up until 3am the night before. But I kind of dismiss that because I slept 5 hours and woke at a somewhat normal time. But I'm not sure I slept well. Like I said, there are a few small factors that could have caused the spike, but I dont want to put too much weight on one reason or another because they really were such small differences from my norm.

The reason I ask is because after I put my temp in this morning, FF predicted that I O'd 3 days ago. And I know I didn't for sure. All my other symptoms say I didn't. Like I said, it could have all been freak temps. Who knows? Lol

I think drinks with alcohol can raise temps. Not sure how much you have to drink for that to happen? Hopefully the next few days will give you some answers.

Kelbug, check out this link! It might help you! And about half way down, there's a chart as an example. The temps kind of bounce around a little. I would recommend to you to just look for your thermal shift after O. That might be more helpful since your temps seem erratic.

From what you said, I don't think they are that erratic though... Not far off from "normal" depending upon whT part of your cycle you're in! :) GL!

Thanks so much that was extremely helpful. that makes since. i thought my temp should stay low during af. thas when my temps are more up and down. that said that temps fluctuate more around af due to left over hormones from last cycle. thanks so much. i bookmarked that.
