Good morning. I have a question about your body temperature before your period. I am due for my period on the 5th abd I have taken my temperature the past couple mornings. It is at 99.8 and 99.7. I usually run a little lower than some other people so that is higher for me. I just want to know if that is a good sign??? And when before your period is your temp expected to lower? I have had other symptoms as well but I just need to know about this. Please please help me!!!!

well, Happy birthday! First off, what time of day do you take your temp? It's recommended first thing in the am- even before you get out of bed. Those temps seem high for first morning. However, to answer your question, temp will usually drop the day before or the day of your period. Could even begin a few days before and drop slowly.

Yes this is a sign. If your temp stays elevated. I took my temp a few days before af was due and it was around 99 and I was pregnant due in Oct. Good luck!

Can you use a regular digital thermometer to take your temp or does it have to be a BBT???

For a true reading, they recommend a bbt.

it only counts taking your temp first thing before getting out of bed...dont take it during the day,,,your temp goes up as soon as you get out of bed..hope that helps

You need to be monitoring your temp for an extended period of time (i.e. to compare to your normal cycle) for body temperature to work.
