How to chart temperature
How do I take my temperature when fertility charting?
There are a few guidelines to follow when taking your basal body temperature (BBT) to make sure you get the best interpretation on your chart.
Your Basal Body Temperature (BBT) is a critical fertility sign because it is the best sign to confirm ovulation and pinpoint your ovulation date with a high degree of precision. This is because your BBT responds to the hormone progesterone, which is only present in high amounts after ovulation.
When you consistently record your BBT, you can see that temperatures are relatively lower before ovulation and higher after ovulation. Once a few higher temperatures are observed, ovulation can be identified for the day before your temperature rise.
