There’s a few that are VERY experienced, I’m pretty new, however, I’m pretty sure antibiotics as well as your body fighting the infection should affect your temp.

The body produces a substance called pyrogens when there is an infection in your body.  The result is increased body temperature.  This is basically a mechanism to allow your body to try to get rid of the offending agent (ex. bacteria) because it can’t survive at higher temperatures.  

 

Can you check with your physician to find out more info and ask if the rest of your cycle should be normal?  I’m sure your physician would be able to answer your questions better because they have your past medical history, etc.

Well, I don’t “think” that the infection will affect your cycle. It WILL affect your ability to read your cervical fluid. Where in your cycle are you? If your fairly regular, you should still get your period about the same time and ovulate about the same time. If your not, it would probably be best to abstain and allow your body a chance to heal. But, by judging other things it can help you “guess” where you are…

What day of your cycle are you on? Based on the previous three cycles, which phase should you probably be in right now? That will give you a ballpark to start in for what you should be on the lookout for. I also doubt that the infection will have changed your cycle; it’s just that it’s masked the signs.

Also, once the infection goes away you will be able to determine Phase 3 by counting three days of dry mucus and three days of high temperatures. You might miss the rise because of the infection, but since you have a few cycles of experience you know roughly what high temperature level is normal for your body. I have been sick during my temperature rise too (really sick, like 102 degree fever), but once I was no longer sick my temperatures were at their normal post-ovulation level, whereas before I was sick they were at the pre-ovulation level. So I had missed the rise, but I knew I was at my normal post-ovulation temperature level for at least 3 days, and I had the dry mucus readings to back it up. The day of my cycle also corresponded with my cycle history of being in Phase 3.

If you would like I can look at your chart with you—p.m. me if you want to do that.

It’s very unfortunate your Dr isn’t supportive. If it comes down to it, you can probably ask your local pregnancy resource center, i.e. not a clinic but like a birthright center that focus’ on helping moms who are pregnant. Many times, the Dr’s associated with them are pro-life and know more about FAM methods…. as well as are supportive of your beliefs. Just ask a local center for a list of recommended Drs…. if it comes down to that and you need to find one who understands and supports your decision… as well as aid you to practice it better.
