Joanna explains why she took the basal body temperature test.

I decided to do the basal body test because I had a recommendation from my acupuncturist. My results, from what I had known at the time, had come back fine, and so, he sent me a scan of a page where it told me how to take my basal body temperature and it told me that at the beginning of your period, on the second day of your period, you should take your basal body temperature in the morning within the first five minutes of when you wake up and record it every morning for those five days and your normal range, based off of what he sent me, should be 97.8 to 98.2 and my basal body temperature never got above 97.18 and it was some days it was in the 96 range.

Very helpful video. I am hypothyroid and so is my brother and mother. Thank you for providing this helpful article on hypothyroidism. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism following the birth of my first son in 2006 and experienced many of the symptoms you have listed. I trusted my doctors completely assuming they knew everything there was to know about this disease, especially when I became pregnant again in late 2008. How wrong I was! Under their care my TSH, the gold standard for measuring thyroid function, rose high above the safe range for pregnancy and I miscarried. I vowed to myself that I would research everything there was to know about hypothyroidism and warn other women. I fulfilled my vow and launched my blog Hypothyroid Mom in memory of the baby I lost to hypothyroidism.
