Best Basal Thermometer

A basal thermometer is a sensitive device designed for reading the small changes in temperature that occur over the course of a woman’s menstrual cycle.

What is Basal Body Temperature (BBT)

A basal body temperature (BBT) is the normal body temperature of a person at rest. It is the body temperature measured under the conditions, which is not influenced by food, drink or any activities. For optimum accuracy, basal temperature should be taken at the same time every morning upon waking. Women can track their BBT to find out when they are ovulating. With this time line, By taking basal temperature daily and charting it, a woman can learn when she is most or least likely to become pregnant.

Charting Your Basal Temperature

Before ovulation, a woman’s BBT averages between 36.1°C (97°F) and 36.4°C (97.5°F). After ovulation, it rises to 36.4°C (97.5°F) to 37°C (98.6°F). By charting your basal temperature daily, you can see a pattern and notice the changes that occur in every ovulation cycle. You can record your daily basal temperature on the enclosed charts. Take your temperature at the same time every day before getting out of bed. Keeping a charted record for at least three months will usually provide the information you need to determine your approximate day of ovulation during a regular menstrual cycle.

How to Take Accurate Basal Body Temperature

To obtain an accurate basal temperature, you must take your temperature when you first awake in the morning. For best results, this waking temperature should be taken at the same time each morning. Since any activity may tend to raise your temperature, do not get out of bed until you have taken your basal temperature. Postpone going to the bathroom, eating, smoking or drinking until after taking your basal temperature.
