If you are trying to get pregnant, you probably already know that one of the best ways to track your ovulation is to chart your basal body temperature. The process of charting your basal body temperature (or BBT, as it is sometimes called), is pretty simple. However, there are a few things that you can do to ensure that you get the most accurate reading, and today we are going to go over those tips for you.

Get a good thermometer

Yes, you can find some cheap basal body thermometers out there, but as the old adage goes, you get what you pay for. To get the very best results, buy a special basal body thermometer, rather than just a regular digital thermometer. Also, don’t opt for the cheapest one you find.

Consistency is the key

One of the most important keys to getting an accurate reading when you are taking your basal body temperature is to be consistent, always. Always take your temperature at the same time each day, before you get out of bed. Make sure to do it every single day. Also, only use one thermometer, and don’t switch back and forth. Finally, decide how you are going to take your temperature (orally, vaginally, rectally), and do it the same way each time. Any changes that you make can really affect your results.

Don’t forget to chart

Even if you are taking your temperature every day, it is not going to do you any good unless you are also charting your temperature each day. Make sure to at least write your temperature down each day, so that you can go back and chart it later. Once you have your temperature, you can chart it and make your graph so that you can easily see your results.

Learn about your body

Even if you are taking your BBT every day, and charting your temperatures regularly, if you don’t learn from those results, you won’t be doing any good. Make sure to study your charts and see if you notice any particular patterns in your cycles. You might notice that you ovulate earlier or later than you thought. If you follow these patterns, it is going to be a lot easier for you to get pregnant.

    The Pull out Method is considered to be a birth control method and is done to avoid pregnancies. Since the Pull out method prevents you from conceiving, it is best that you discontinue using this birth control method to increase your chances of getting pregnant soon.
