Question: TEMPERATURE AND OVULATION


 Melani - Tue Nov 16, 2004 6:44 am

Since coming off the pIll in March, I have had only 2 periods so I don't know anymore when I am ovulating.

Since coming off the Pill, my breasts have remained swollen and tender, with no pain. But now they are hugely swollen and tender, but there's no pain.
Also yesterday, I felt as though I was getting a cold - like a fever/high temperature that lasted about 6-8 hours, but that is gone now.

COuld I be pregnant or just premenstrual ?
How does BODY temperature work iro ovulation and when you fall pg ?

User avatar Hi!

I know that the basal body temperature rises upon ovulation. But I am not aware of any changes in temperature to occur on falling pregnant. Tenderness of breasts is a distinct symptom of premenstrual syndrome as well as pregnancy. But a pregnancy test can without reasonable doubts confirm if you are pregnant.
