Basal Body Temperature is one of the best ways to keep a track of ovulation which helps in conceiving a baby or avoiding pregnancy. BBT Thermometer is the best solution to measure and keep a check on the basal body temperature. You need to keep a BBT chart which will be helpful in saving money from extensive pregnancy tests.
The important thing to realize is that maintaining the BBT chart will only help you figure out if you’ve ovulated after it’s already happened. Once you’ve crossed ovulation, your basal body temperature will shift up by at least four-tenths (0.4) of a degree Fahrenheit. If your temperature stays elevated for at least 3 days after that shift, then you know that you’ve just crossed ovulation. Congrats!
It’s a pretty nifty tool for determining pregnancy, too. If your BBT chart shows a temperature elevation for more than 15 days without a period, there’s a good chance that you might be pregnant. Alternatively, if your BBT chart shows a dip in temperature, then your period is most likely on its way.
How do you Measure BBT:
Women often end up trying to answer the question of "How To Use BBT chart". (2) A prerequisite to that is knowing how to measure BBT. Every morning, as soon as you open your eyes, before you stir or get out of bed, you take a special thermometer called a Basal Thermometer – which has 2 decimal places (ie. 97.67 degrees F) after the period rather than the normal one decimal place (ie. 97.7 degrees F) – and take your temperature. You can take it orally, vaginally, or rectally. (3)
It’s best to set an alarm and do this at the exact same time every morning, including weekends. (OVO fertility can help with this! Simply set a daily morning reminder for yourself in the reminders section.)
Should you chart Yes and No?:
Yes–every woman should at least try at some point to track their BBT for a few months. When done correctly, it can be a huge relief to know that ovulation has happened when you see that temperature dip followed by a spike. It might even save you money on pregnancy tests. BBT charting is as good as an ovulation calculator, or just a little behind.
There are other reasons to chart as well - OVO fertility learns quickly from your BBT data. If you have a short luteal phase or other kinds of gynecological issues going on, charting your BBT can help you discover these patterns. (4)
And last but certainly not least, measuring BBT puts you in control of your body. So much of fertility is passive, but tracking your BBT is proactive. It will help you learn more BBT chart doesn’t work for everyone. Some women work night shifts, which can make charting a lot trickier. Some women drink or take certain medications. Unfortunately, some women have PCOS. (6) Others have insomnia or trouble falling asleep. Any of these can make your BBT chart look like it got hit by an earthquake!
For all of those reasons, measuring BBT might just unnecessarily add to stress levels. So keep in mind that although BBT charting is wonderful, it’s just one tool in your reproductive arsenal. (5) The ovulation calculator would work just fine for you, and the stress would not be as consuming. Tracking cervical mucus, cervical position, or taking OPKs are other options that might work just as well (or sometimes even better). You can see all of these log items on OVO fertility period tracking cycle charts as well, which works as an ovulation calculator too, even if you do not track BBT. (7)
