You Want Me to Stick WHAT in My Mouth?

Get your mind out of the gutter. We’re talking about a basal thermometer!

When you’re first trying to conceive, get acquainted with your basal body temperature (BBT). This is a great way to understand how your body works and what it’s trying to tell you.

Your BBT will be at its lowest temperature before a woman begins to ovulate. A rise in temperature is commonly seen the day after ovulation occurs. Should a pregnancy occur, your temperature will remain high, or, in the case that you are not pregnant, your BBT will decrease during or before your menstrual cycle.

The best way to determine if you are ovulating is to chart your temperature daily at the same in the morning (over time, you will begin to see a pattern), and purchase ovulation predictor kits. You have a limited time each month to conceive, so make sure you’re always trying during your peak times!
