Re: Low bbt, thyroid? Waiting to ttc?

Yeah, I'm not sure about the Dr. Oz statement either - my bbt pretty much never hits 98, and I've seen like, a gazillion charts on FF with temps under 98 for the whole month, including tons of pg ones. You can search the chart gallery there to take a look-see :-)

I'm not discounting the importance of thyroid or anything, but I think most likely you'd have to look at temps plus other symptoms.

Oh, and I have also wondered what breastfeeding does to bbt. I've never researched it, but I have wondered if it pushes temps down...

I'd love to know the answer to the thermometer question myself. Maybe I'll go look on the thermometer company's website...
