Tips to Use BBT for Ovulation Calculation (Basal Body Temperature)

Ready to start temping?  And want to make sure you're doing it right?

Here are our top 3 tips to BBT most effectively:

  1. Temp every day. Temping is not like ovulation tests -- it depends on consistent, daily data so that you can find a consistent temperature shift during a full ovulation cycle.  

  1. Temp at the same time every day BEFORE you get out of bed. BBT is your resting temperature, and you need to take it before you even leave the bed in the morning. Even more than a half an hour time difference can affect your results ( and we’re talking about measurements in tenths of a degree!)  It’s also important to aim for at least 3 hours of uninterrupted sleep. 

  1. Use Premom to do the charting and interpretation for you. Premom will identify your BBT spike, graph your temps, and create your coverline -- so you can identify pre-ovulation and post-ovulation in your cycle.  AND if you get the easy@home smart thermometer, Premom will even automatically input your data for you. Just take your temp and check your app chart.
