BBT after D&C


I had my D&C on 6/19. I'm probably wasting my time by charting my BBTs because we're probably not going to be able to try again for two more cycles, but I've noticed that my temps have yet to drop back down to pre-O temps. Does anyone else have experience with this? If you began charting your BBTs after a D&C, how long did it take for your temps to drop? I really hope it happens soon so that hopefully my body will get back into the swing of things.

I figured I'd update just in case anyone else is in this same situation one day. My BBTs are still much higher than pre-O temps but slightly lower than actual pregnant temps. I know based on hpt that the hcg is still very much in my system, but I'm waiting on a quantitative hcg to come back so I know exactly how much. I just want things to go back to normal so we can be closer to TTC again. Ugh.

Hang in there. It can take some time. Also, unless you've been charting for a very long time (like all through last summer), it's likely your temps are higher now anyway because the weather is warmer. I did BBT with my daughter (got pregnant with her in June) and those pre-O temps were much closer to my post-O temps and pregnancy with my 2nd pregnancy (which ended in mc), but I'm pretty sure that's because it was January/February and our house was really cold. A very tiny difference in body temperature due to the weather can make a huge difference. I have no idea how long hcg stayed in my system as I didn't check it, but I did ovulate exactly 2 weeks after my d&c. Your first cycle until you get your period is likely to be whacky so I wouldn't really overthink it (and personally I probably wouldn't temp as the data won't be very useful to you next time). But hopefully things get back to normal after that. I got pregnant the next cycle after I had a period, so it's possible for everything to just re-set itself pretty quickly. But I would expect a few weird weeks until then.

I'm doing the bbt just to see if I can get an idea when to expect my first AF. It's helped me to feel a lot less anxious. I think (and hope) that I O'd two days ago based on my temps, which is also about when I would have O'd in a regular cycle. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed for AF to show in two weeks, or maybe even sooner (as long as it doesn't happen so quickly in future cycles when we're TTC again).

Congratulations on your rainbow, by the way! Here's to a healthy, happy baby!

I didn't track BBT after my D&C, but did do multiple pregnancy tests to monitor HCG. I also used OPKs. Both tests were all over the place for several weeks. My pregnancy tests got lighter then darker then lighter again and I had what looked like pretty strong positives on the opks 3 different times. My body was just completely out of whack. AF arrived exactly 5 weeks after D&C and then I got pregnant next cycle (6 weeks now).

So again, even if everything is a little off right now you can quickly get back in sync for the next cycle.

So, after waiting and watching my BBTs slowly drop back to baseline, I had copious EWCM 28 days after the D&C, and then the big dip, and now my temps are higher again. I'm so excited I finally O'd. And the EWCM was quite a nice surprise because I've never had it in the year we've been TTC #2 and the two times we conceived were with PreSeed (which sadly neither stuck). I really hope I get the EWCM next cycle, too!
