I cant help, but I just bought it yesterday (the themometer) and will start temping tomorrow morning.

I know I need to read the material soon, but the time when you wake up is important? Do I need to temp every day the exact same time? Or can it be approximate? Like within 1 hour.

Those sound like pretty normal temps to me. Mine have gone as low as 96.6

Here are my past three (third one is in progress) charts, so you can see how low mine go.

@ThreeMeers:  Try for the same time every morning (set an alarm, you don’t want to wake up gradually because your temp goes up when you wake slow). FertilityFriend wants you within the half hour or it will count it as a white dot (wrong, interfered with, etc).

I recommend using fertility friend to chart your temps, soooo much easier than doing it on paper! And it takes the guess work out of doing a cover line, etc., and keeps track of your previous cycles nicely.

AWWWW SAD! I just pulled out my thermometer to find it was stolen from the package at the store. I just spend $20 on an empty box 🙁  Ill go back to try to return it. Hopefully they wont blame me. I was talking to the pharmacist so if it comes to it hopefully he will remember be asking questions about the OPKs

OP, also so this isnt a threadjack. This was a good question. I know I tend to have low body temps so this is something I would have asked if you didnt here.

96.6 was a normal low for me waking up at 7am to temp. I went as low as 95.7 once when I woke up at 4am.  Seems to be the later, the higher the temp for me.

My temps were often in that range, also using a CVS BBT thermometer. Sounds normal to me!

@MissLunchbox:  That’s not that low. My temps pre-o are around 97.0 and have gone below that at times. 

ETA: I also use the CVS thermometer. I just changed after a year because the batteries started to go, and my new therm measures me between .3-.5 degrees higher than the CVS one.  Just wanted to let you know that thermometer might run a little low, but  don’t think that’s a problem as long as the thermometer is consistent.

@MissLunchbox:  This is the one I have, but I of course havent dont it yet. The instructions say

“When the on/pff button is depressed to activate, hold down for approx 5 seconds. the display of 1888.88 will change to show the last measured temp. the reading is displayed as long as the button is held down.  When released’ the thermometer will be in the ‘ready-to-measure’ mode and the recalled temp wll be erased.

Good luck!

My temps also go that low. Don’t worry about it, it’s quite normal. On the paper charts I had to change each of their major numbers to a degree lower. They seem really high to me. What’s really important is how much your temp raises post-O because if they don’t raise much it could be indicative of low progesterone.
