Re: Basal Body Temp?

By charting your temps it helps you to better pinpoint your day of ovulation, therefore increasing your chances of becoming pg. You can buy a basal body thermometer at just about any drugstore and inside it will help you to understand exactly what to do (it comes with instructions) I like to use the computer to chart my temps and get my graph to follow but you can also do so with pen and paper. Basically what happens is right around the day you ovulate your temps. will decrease or take a dramatic dip followed by at least 3 days of temp. rises...there are also numerous sites that can help you to better understand...including the archive on this one. Hope this helps. Best wishes and baby dust to you.

Re: Basal Body Temp?

Also, take your temp in the morning before you get out of bed or do anything else--same time appoximately each day. Your temps in the first part of your cycle before you ovulate (follicular phase) will be lower than the temps after you ovulate (the luteal phase). Check out the book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" by Toni Weschler too if you want a really good resource.
