The post-ovulatory temperatures remain at this new, higher level, until menses when they drop and start the cycle over again. If you are pregnant, your basal body temperature will stay at an elevated level. Due to the fact that the temperature shift happens during ovulation, if you are trying to get pregnant, charting your bbt for at least two months will be necessary so you can determine the point BEFORE ovulation when you are most fertile.[/b]
Does this mean that you will have a raised body temperature post-ovulation if you are indeed pregnant?

You will (typically) have the higher temp for your entire luteal phase/ until AF show. If you are pregnant it will continue to be high even past when AF was supposed to show.

That is one way charting can help you know you might be pregnant, if your temps stay high past when they should have dropped already. Of course and AF being late helps too.
