If you're trying to have a baby, checking your temperature can tell you a lot about your body.

Here's what you need to know.

What Your Temperature Can Show About Having a Baby

Bumpy Temperatures:

  • If your temperatures go up and down a lot, it might mean something is going on in your body.
  • Some people feel things like bloating, tiredness, or mood changes before their period.
  • This might be why the temperatures are all over the place.
  • Doctors who know about Chinese medicine think they can help by doing things like acupuncture and suggesting better foods to eat.

Low and Bumpy Temperatures:

  • If your temperatures are low and bumpy, figuring out why might make them get better.
  • Sometimes, people feel stressed, and it shows up in their temperature.
  • When they feel better, their temperatures get smoother.

Why Low Temperatures After Releasing an Egg Matter

Your temperature can tell you about a hormone called progesterone, which helps you have a baby.

Understanding Progesterone:

  • After an egg is released, your temperature goes up, and this helps make progesterone.
  • If the temperature doesn't go high enough, the body might not make enough progesterone.
  • That's important for having a baby.

Fixing Low Temperatures:

  • If your temperatures are low, you'll need to figure out why.
  • Once you know, you can fix it, and the temperatures might get better.
