Are basal body temperatures reliable in women with PCOS?

Women with PCOS who are mostly anovulatory will have erratic BBTs — some say it will look like the Rocky Mountains. If a woman with PCOS has an ovulatory cycle, the BBT chart should show a thermal shift, but it may be a bit harder to read. Some doctors see more value in charting than others, and one should follow their own physician's advice.

I have rocky mountain temps each cycle, but I just wanted to let you all know that according to FF that rocky temps also can mean you don't take your temp at the same time of the morning. I do ovulate, but I'm guessing my BB is rocky because I don't take my temp at the same time each morning.

Taking your temp at the same time is important for an accurate chart whether or not you have PCOS.

My chart definately looks like the Rocky Mountains, but I don't ovulate either so I don't see a shift change.

Back when I was first TTC and having problems, I tried to do the BBT thing. I definitely had the rocky mountain temp thing, and as a matter of fact, that is how I discovered that I did not ovulate. So, tracking my BBT now is completely worthless, but I am glad I did it when I did because I went right to my doc and was like, okay, I do not ovulate, where do we go from here?
