BBT help

I have been using the Walgreens BBTT this month and having some issues. This am it read 97.1, I got up and let the dogs out and then turned it back on because it is supposed to save the last two, it read 97.1 then yeaterday's 96.8. Then it will flash lo because it is trying to take a temp then. Now I turn it back on and it reads Lo then 96.8. Should I ignore the 97.1? I may get a new one today as this is the second time it has done this.

Re: BBT help

  • I wouldn't ignore todays temp. I would get a new one from Walmart but not use it until next cycle (you shouldn't switch thermometers midway through a cycle).
    TTC #1 05/2011- 04/2012; TTA  05/12- 05/14 due to DH health problems, nursing school. TTC #1 (again) since 05/2014. CP 08/04/14 at 4w3d 

  • You need to chart the first temp of 97.1 for today.

  • I would take 97.1 and then invest in another BBT. I use the Mabis from Walmart and have had no issues with it.

  • I have the Walgreens BBT as well, are you sure it says 96.8 & not 98.6? It will always show Low then 98.6 (it's what's considered the average body temp) and then Low again. And from what I know it only saves the last temp, not the last 2.

    This + ditch the Walgreens temp since it gives favorites and go with the Mabis one from Walmart.  I went through a Target and a Walgreens BBT before landing on this one, and I've had it for over a year now.

  • Just a question, but you're listing temperatures to the tenth, not the hundredth. Was your temp 96.10, or 96.1?

    I swore it said 97.1 but then when I went to record later it had 98.60. So maybe I was dreaming the 97.1. This is the first month I am temping.... trial and error I guess.... I am going to chalk this cycle up to me being dumb. Next cycle I will take it then go back and look at it once I am awake.
