A little spotting but my BBT is still high

Ok I started spotting a little bit last night. When i wipe there was a little smear of blood. Well this morning my BBT was higer then it's been yet in my luteal phase. Although this past week I haven't had a full nights sleep. I have been waking up a lot throughout the night either because im hot, or just for no reason my body just wakes me... What i dont understand is, i know once your suppose to get your period you temp drops. My AF is due tomorrow... Any advice or why my temp is still so high if i started spotting a little bit last night? and should i test or just wait it out?

  • It's not unusual for your temps to stay high during your period before your progesterone levels have gone all the way back down. Mine have dropped anywhere from the day before I start to a couple of days after I start. And since you don't count the start of your period until you start actual period flow, you might go a couple of days with just spotting and still have a high temp until your period actually starts.
