Basal body temperature

Our basal body temperature is our temperature that we track daily with certain guidelines to give us a most accurate and consistent reading. The sign of our basal body temperature is the most important in our practice as it is the only indicator of the three that shows us definitively whether or not ovulation has taken place.

Guidelines for taking your basal body temperature: sleep at least 3-4 hours before taking

Take temperature around the same time every morning before getting out of bed, talking too much, getting on the phone etc.

Make sure to log your basal body temperature in an app or chart

Alcohol consumption, traveling, being sick, and stress can all effect your Basal Body temperature, so if you are sick for example you cannot rely on this sign and it is recommended to use a natural product during this cycle.
