Women of childbearing age often encounter various problems in the process of preparing for pregnancy, but there are also many women who meet the requirements for pregnancy in various physical examinations, but still cannot get pregnant. It is speculated that the reason is likely to be the wrong time for the consummate. To find the correct time for consummate, finding out the day of ovulation is the key.
In fact, basal body temperature can not only predict the ovulation period and confirm the quality of ovulation, help women prepare for pregnancy and contraception correctly, but also have an early warning effect on female progesterone and various diseases, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, ovarian hypofunction, high prolactin and so on. Therefore, it is important to choose the best basal body thermometer for ovulation while you're preparing for conceiving a baby. Next, I will mainly talk about the different meanings represented by several different basal body temperature graphs.
Ovulation is normal, and the two-phase changes of high and low temperature are obvious. The low temperature period and the high temperature period of the body temperature curve are obvious. From the start of menstruation to the day of ovulation, the period of low temperature lasted for 14 days; after ovulation, the period of high temperature continued for 14 days, of which the 14th day was the day of ovulation.
On this day, the low temperature turns to high temperature, and intercourse is the best time to conceive. In this cycle, the first is the hypothermia period. After ovulation, the temperature increases due to the influence of progesterone secreted by the corpus luteum. After the normal luteal phase of about 14 days, the luteal atrophy stops secreting progesterone, and the reduction of progesterone to a certain amount will no longer affect the thermoregulatory center, and the body temperature returns to the hypothermic phase. At the same time menstrual cramps.
To confirm pregnancy, if high temperature persists for more than 16 days. If the temperature continues to rise for more than 16 days from the measurement to the ovulation period, it is very likely that you are pregnant. After pregnancy, because the corpus luteum is supported by the hormones secreted by the embryo, it continues to secrete progesterone (luteal hormone), and the level of progesterone is maintained, which affects the thermoregulatory center, so the body temperature continues to be high.
No ovulation, continuous low temperature, no high temperature period, no high-low temperature biphasic change. If the measurement shows that the basal body temperature curve shows a continuous low temperature curve without high temperature periods, it is likely that ovulation has not occurred. There are also people whose body temperature fluctuates, but does not rise continuously. At this time, it is recommended to go to the hospital for examination. There are many reasons for an ovulation. It is recommended to find out the cause as soon as possible so that the right medicine can be prescribed.
Generally speaking, when there is no conception, the concentration of progesterone will drop rapidly because the endometrial lining is about to fall off. If the body temperature drops slowly, it indicates that the corpus luteum is not functioning properly and is not conducive to pregnancy. In the semi-menstrual cycle after ovulation, body temperature tends to rise. After ovulation, the body temperature shows an obvious gradual rise process, and the high temperature period is reached after about 1 week. Or at the end of the high temperature period, the body temperature drops slowly instead of falling sharply directly to the low temperature period. These two conditions may occur simultaneously, or one may occur independently. But no matter which one is, it suggests that the corpus luteum is insufficiency. When the corpus luteum function is insufficient, the temperature increase may not be obvious, and the high temperature period is less than 12 days. It also usually means poor ovulation and a decreased chance of conception.
Cool down after a period of high temperature (16 days). The basal body temperature continued to be high for a period of time, mostly after 16 days, cooling occurred. It is generally a sign of early miscarriage. If you find such a basal body temperature curve after pregnancy, you should go to the hospital as soon as possible to find out the cause.
Whether basal body temperature is used to monitor the day of ovulation, or to prompt a variety of gynecological diseases, it has a good guiding role for clinical practice. Therefore, as long as women of school age over 20 years old, regardless of whether there is a need for pregnancy or contraception, they should insist on measuring their basal body temperature, especially for some women with inaccurate menstrual cycles.
