Hi I am Carrie the host of the board.
As long as your themometer can give a different temp (try in the middle of the day) then the same temp is fine.
Not sure about the pain it could have been O or anything really. Do you check your CM at all? that can help a lot.
How far are you sticking the themometer in? I dont temp vaginally but it shouldnt be far enough in to make it hurt or cramp. if you have a next cycle you can temp orally again. It is not recommended to change methods mid cycle.
But, I have a question. For the last 4 days, my temps have been the exact same. 96.8 everyday.
My temps do that too, they stay constant for days but I'm not sure why they do that. I found it odd when i first noticed it happening but now i realize I'd prefer it that way vs. being all over the place
Hi ! Welcome to the board ! I just starting temping Last month and just like you my temps were extremely low so i switched to temping vaginally this month. When i started temping this way i was trying to put the thermometer in too far and that was a bit uncomfortable but i never experienced any pain. I start trying to temp around between CD 7 and CD 11. Since this is your first month i def would check cm because along with charting its helpful. If you think the pain is ovulation you should make a note of it . Good luck !!!
The # of the temp isn't as important as the consistency of it and the shifting pattern. So you will want to look for a clear pattern of temps that are lower and then a shift to that which are higher. They may be all the same temp, may vary up and down, but at the end of the day there should be a clear low area (pre-O) and a clear high area (post-O) on your chart.
See that's what i don't know. It went up again, but all of the temps seem soo low. I'm going to ask about it when I see my Dr. next week. Maybe it's because I'm still new at to the whole charting thing. It's a lot to learn at first.
