Question: Cervix & Basal body temprature?
|cancontact_me - Mon Jun 22, 2009 7:19 pm||
How is a woman's cervix & basal body temprature before & after ovulation ? Also how is your cervix & basal body temprature right after ovulation. What could be the good indication for early pregnancy detection related to basal body temprature & cervix ?

The cervix tends to shift up if you are pregnant. If the basal temperature remains high for 18 days after ovulation, it can be a possible indication of pregnancy. In some cases there is another temperature rise in pregnancy around seven to ten days after ovulation but this is not a definitive sign of pregnancy. It might be considered a screening, where it increases the odds of pregnancy and along with other signs can be helpful. A home pregnancy test is really the best way to tell if you are pregnant. These can be done as early as a week after conception and are quite reliable a few days to a week after your missed period. I hope this answers your questions.
