Tracking your basal body temperature is a great way to confirm ovulation and predict pregnancy. Many women also use BBT combined with other fertile signs for natural family planning.
To Track: Using a BBT thermometer or wearable device, track your temperature every morning around the same time, before you get out of bed. Log your temperature in an app or on a spreadsheet.
Keep in mind that accurate readings may be affected by illness, lack of/too much sleep, alcohol, traveling, working odd shifts, medications, and more.
See the list inside your guidebook for recommended basal body temperature thermometers and wearable devices.
- Use a BBT thermometer or wearable
- Take your temperature before you get out of bed
- Write down or use and app to record your BBT
Cervical mucus is responsible for creating an optimal environment for sperm during your fertile window. You should notice creamy cervical mucus leading up to ovulation and egg-white cervical mucus the day of ovulation.
Tips: Use a clean finger or toilet paper to check your cervical mucus in the days after menstruation. Note your cervical mucus in your BBT tracking app or write it down on a spreadsheet.
Use the length of your last 3 menstrual cycles to determine your average cycle length. (Most women fall between 28-35 days) If you use a tracking app, many apps calculate your average cycle length for you.
Example: 28 +30 + 29 = 87 87/3 = 29 (average cycle length)
Since ovulation occurs about 14 days prior to your menstrual cycle, you can substract 14 days from your average cycle length to determine an estimated ovulation date. You are most fertile 2 days leading up to and the day of ovulation. These 3 days are considered your fertile window.
Example: 29 (average cycle length) – 14 = 15 Fertile window = day 13, 14, 15
Once you have calculated your fertile window, you can confirm ovulation using your cervical mucus and BBT. To become pregnant you should have sex every day or every other day (low sperm count) during your calculated fertile window until signs of ovulation pass.
