Provera and BBT


Has anyone temped while taking Provera and had their BBT mimic ovulation? I know in theory Provera could raise your BBT but mine didn't go up til after 3 doses. Anyone else have this happen? I had a couple other signs saying I may have O'd on Friday but I don't know if it's just wishful thinking or not. I've never temped with Provera before so I don't know what to think. If I get another high temp tomorrow I will get cross-hairs saying O was Friday (2 days ago). I take my last pill tonight so I guess time will tell but I was wondering your experiences.... Thanks!!

It will raise your temps a bit but not much. Mine stayed elevated while taking then after my last pill dropped a bit..then jumped back up today. I'm hoping I o'd before taking my second cycle.

Actually, Provera should raise your temps and noticeably. It's a synthetic form of progesterone and has the same effects on your body as natural progesterone, if not more.

Every time I've taken Provera I've charted and the day after taking the first pill my temp jumps up to post-O temps. After taking the last pill, my temps will slowly drop until AF shows up.

If you have seen a delayed jump in temps after starting Provera, it's likely due to a delay in your body's response to the drug. I too thought I had O'd right before taking Provera one cycle and although there is a very slim chance you can O right after starting Provera, it is very unlikely (turns out I didn't).

Also, if your temps stay up days after finishing the pills and they don't look like they're dropping at all then I would test. If in the chance you did O, your natural progesterone should keep your temps up somewhat.

My temp jumped up again today. Gave my ob a call and they want me to wait three weeks before testing. I can't wait three weeks lol, I'll go insane.

Last time my Provera didn't completely stop my bleeding issues and this time it was almost gone before I started Provera and completely stopped the day after I started my pills. I had some ovary pains and crampy feelings Thurs night and all day Friday and I just figured it was the Provera doing something crazy. I didn't even want to mark it down, but since it was all day long, I figured I should be honest on my chart since it was something very obvious that day. If it was the Provera (and not ovulation) that stopped my spotting, shouldn't it have also raised my temp the next day vs after 3 doses? Just rambling here. Last time I started AF 3-4 days after my last pill, so I'm expecting it in the next 2-3 days. My body never does anything normally so why would it start now? lol I'm fully expecting to see AF, I just wish my temps and body agreed on things. Last "cycle", FF and TCOYF were convinced I O'd... TCOYF even had "pregnant" on my chart even though I'm not. So apparently my temps lied.

Why do they want you to wait 3 weeks before testing? That doesn't make sense to wait that long. If on the off chance you O'd right before taking the 1st or 2nd pill then you could test 2 weeks after first starting the Provera. Once you're a few pills in, there is no chance you'll O (progesterone totally trumps the estrogen that surges before O).

If you're temps are dropping steadily, then that's a sign there was no O and that Provera is wearing off. Give it a few more days and see what your temps do. If they continuing going up, then I would test 2 weeks from the first pill you took.
