How does the temparature differ from a person who is pregnant and one who is not?

I am trying to start this charting thing and I just need some help.

My temps are hovering around 98.25 ish range. I am about 6DPO. If my temps drop, is that a good thing or a bad thing? I just want to know what the chart differences are for someone who just got pregnant compared to someone who tested and is not pregnant.

Thanks

Quite often, there is no difference in a pregnancy chart and a non-pregnancy chart except that a non-pregnancy chart will have a temp drop when af arrives, and a pregnancy chart will not have a temp drop & af will not arrive.

Charting really just tells you o, it doesn't predict pregnancy this early on. If you have a sustained temp rise of at least 18 (?? might be 16) days, then that is normally a sign of pregnancy, but most women have gotten a bfp way before then. HTH.

Do you know how does body temperature change when implantation takes place?

Some charts go triphasic. Although non-pregnancy charts have been known to go triphasic too. Some charts don't show a change at all at implantation. Mine weren't triphasic with my 2 pregnancies. Again, it all comes down to not really being able to predict pregnancy. Frustrating, I know. I'm in the 2ww myself.

There really isn't any way to tell for sure you are pregnant until your go past your normal LP. Charting is so you know you ovulated and that you have well timed BDing. I've seen pregnancy charts that barely went above the coverline, and non-pregnancy charts that had gone triphasic, had an implantation dip and everything. You just cannot assume anything because of the way that your chart looks.
