Basal Body Temperature (BBT): Tracking, Charting & more

December 3, 2020

The basal body temperature (BBT) is an excellent method to conceive faster. This works by determining a 'woman's most fertile days. Basal body temperature (BBT) charting helps one securely detect their ovulation cycle, without spending money.

Basal Body Temperature (BBT)

  • The basal body temperature is 'one's temperature when they are at complete rest.
  • This changes due to a few factors, including 'one's hormones.
  • During ovulation progesterone causes one's temperature to rise.
  • The temperature remains higher throughout the two weeks.
  • Right before the period starts the progesterone level decrease.
  • That causes the body temperature to decrease as well.
  • Although if one is pregnant, the temperatures will remain higher be as progesterone during pregnancy is high.

When to measure BBT?

  • One should take their temperature in the morning before moving around or getting out of the bed.
  • Avoiding going to the bathroom is recommended.
  • That causes 'one's temps to rise slightly which makes the chart inaccurate
  • It is crucial that the temperature is taken correctly.
  • If the temperature taken is incorrect, the entire outcome will be false
  • How to Measure BBT
  • After a BBT chart is ready,
  • A thermometer made for tracking the BBT is used
  • The accuracy of this thermometer should be 1/10th (98.6) of a degree if the BBT is measured in Fahrenheit or 1/100th (37.00) of a degree if measured in Celsius.
  • Although normal works well too

When to Start Charting?

  • Ideally, one should start charting from the first day of their period and continue to take their BBT temperature every morning throughout the entire cycle.

Ovulation Identification

  • After observing the pattern, one gets accustomed to understanding how the charting works
  • A person may notice a decrease in temperature on the day of ovulation
  • Not everyone understands this or even gets this experience
  • If such a drastic change is observed, one should be sure that they are ovulating

Getting Pregnant

Sexual intercourse is not necessarily needed on the day of ovulation to get pregnant If a person has sex a few days before ovulation starts they might get pregnant as the sperm reach the ovaries within time Charting one’s BBT is a great and inexpensive way to detect the time best for pregnancy and get pregnant. Consulting a doctor can help as well in such a case as the doctor would provide valuable insights to follow to conceive soon through this method
