I was always told 36-37° is normal. What kind if thermometer do you have? I have an in ear one and if I don't get it in the right position I find I get a low reading on DD and keep trying until I get a few exactly the same

Its a digital under arm thermometer.

I have found out underarm one is usually a degree lower than normal but I don't really have any suggestions for how to fix it. The in-ear ones I was told you can't use until they are older. Maybe just check it under both arms and then check your temp and see how it compares.

I was always told to Add 1 degrees if your using an underarm thermometer, because your not measuring core temperature.
