You're funny Staci. I'm getting my eyes checked soon, too. ;-) I'm not sure what the limits are as far as temps and hypo/hyperthyroidism go. I think that it's a good idea to talk to a doctor about hypothyroidism if your follicular phase temps are in the 97.1 range or lower. That's an estimate on my part, so of course double check anything I tell you. It's always best to do your own research. Likewise, high follicular phase temps can indicate hyperthyroidism, so follicular phase temps in the low to mid 98s or higher should also be checked up on. Dreamnasia1 - do a Google search. There are lots of symptoms that can sometimes be very vague, which is why it's kind of hard to diagnose thyroid disorders. I've read that most tests aren't very conclusive and that your temps are as reliable if not more so than the standard tests. If I recall correctly, weight gain is a common symptom of hypothyroidism and weight loss for hyperthyroidism.

ok well i did a search on hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. ive had alot of weight loss starting this year and i wasnt even trying. when i read about hyperthyroidism i felt like i had more of those symptoms.

Low temps are indicative of hypothyroidism and weigh gain and not hyperthyroidism and weigh loss.

Hi Dreamnasia1. I was really unsure about the whole temping thing when I started 2 cycles ago and someone recommended a book to me that was invaluable to me whilst I was working it out. The book is Taking Charge of Your Fertility, by Toni Weschler. I got mine off Amazon. It's great, it explains what the different fluctuations in temps indicate. Get it, it's a great source of info!!

You can also find it cheap on Ebay. That's where I bought mine.

I don't know anything about hypothyroidism, except that many women with PCOS have this problem. PCOS may be another reason your cycles are so long. I agree with everyone, you should go to your doctor and explain your cycle length is not normal and ask for a blood test and u/s.

thanks everyone.....im going to check that book out and speak with my doctor. another question......sorry! i put in my temp for this morning and fertility friend said that from the info of my temps ovulation occured sometime between cd7 to cd11. could that be right and can i be ovulating while still bleeding?

 

dreamnasia1 - May 11

the reason i ask this is because im trying to get an idea if and when i am ovulating so i can become pregnant. also because i had unprotected s_x the the 3rd day into my cycle and i want tot know if there is a possiblity that i may become pregnant if i was to ovulate cd7 to cd11.
