We are trying to conceive and I have been taking my BBT every morning around 6:30. I have noticed that my temperature the past 3 days has been 97.52-97.59. This is new to me and I have read online that says I may need a new thermometer. But I want to know if this is normal? Could I be pregnant? I noticed last night that my breast are really senistive. Please help.

I have had irregular body temperatures (lowest 94 and highest 101.5) over the past week. It was discovered that I have mild hematuria and so I was put on an antibiotic two days ago, but now, I am vomiting and running a consistently higher temperature. Any ideas?

My understanding is that for most healthy adults body temperature drops when sleeping reaching it s lowest point for the day a couple hours before waking. I have been told recently that for babies/children this is not the case...that temperature actually rises while they sleep so I should wait at least 30 minutes after they wake up to take their temperature. I am very skeptical that this is actually the case. I would appreciate some education from an expert. Thanks!

Some days are worse than others and they are normally worse in the morning. I m also cold a lot of the time and my body temperature is 35.7.... I ve had a course of anti-biotics, do i need to go back to the gp?

On Christmas night I had a bout of food poisoning, accompanied by intense shivering and a body temp of 95.8 (taken on both a standard oral thermometer and a digital one). The vomiting / diareaha lasted about 8 hours, and the low body temp about 10. What exactly caused the low body temp, and was it dangerous?
