How to take your Basal Body Temperature
Have you had a Thyroid Function Test (TSH Blood test) done? If so, did it return within “normal range” and you were told your thyroid is functioning perfectly? Well, there is an easy test you can do at home to check your Basal Body Temperature.
To do this take your temperature (under your arm) first thing in the morning as soon as you wake up, before jumping out of bed, for 10 consecutive days.
If your Basal Body Temperature comes in BELOW 36.5 degrees C every day, this is an indication that your thyroid function needs further testing. This test is not a firm diagnosis, but it does indicate that your thyroid is not functioning as it should.
Even if your Thyroid Function Test came in as normal, it still indicates that you may have a problem with your thyroid function which needs further investigation.
Menstruating women should take their temperatures on days 2 and 4 of their cycle.
