How to Correctly Record Basal Body Temperature

The traditional method is to correctly record the measured basal body temperature on the body temperature record sheet, which reflects the function of the ovary. But if it's not recorded correctly, it loses its meaning. The basal body temperature curve is the gold standard for confirming ovulation. In the traditional method, the basal body temperature measured every day is drawn with small dots in the grid of the corresponding body temperature record, until the day before the next menstrual cramp, and finally The dots are connected in sequence with straight lines to form the basal body temperature curve for one menstrual cycle. The shecare smart basal thermometer is used with the APP to automatically upload the basal body temperature and automatically draw the basal body temperature curve. The shecare smart basal thermometer is smarter and more accurate than the traditional method, which is very convenient.

1. Basal body temperature measurement

The menstrual cycle is regular, each cycle is 28-30 days, ovulation is generally about 14 days before the next menstrual period, and 10 days between 5 days before ovulation and 4 days after ovulation is the ovulation period, which is also the fertile period. During the menstrual cycle, the basal body temperature before ovulation is often low, and the normal body temperature before getting up in the morning (ie basal body temperature) is below 37 degrees, about 36.4-36.6 degrees. The body temperature drops slightly during ovulation, and the body temperature rises by about 0.5 degrees on average after ovulation.

2. How to measure basal body temperature

After waking up every morning, do not get out of bed, preferably at the same time, take your body temperature orally. Under normal circumstances, the body temperature is always around 36.5 before ovulation. Body temperature drops slightly during ovulation. After ovulation, it will rise to about 37 degrees, with an average rise of about 0.5 degrees, and it will continue until the next menstrual cramp, and then return to the original body temperature level.

If the basal body temperature is measured continuously for three menstrual cycles, a more accurate ovulation date can be predicted. In addition, the body temperature measured every day is recorded on the form, and the changes in body temperature can be observed at any time.

Under normal conditions, the secretion of cervical mucus is only affected by the periodic effects of ovarian hormones. After the menstrual period, the level of estrogen secreted by the ovaries is the lowest. At this time, the cervical mucus is less and thicker, contains less nutrients, and has a large number of white blood cells. In the pre-ovulation period, the level of estrogen in the body increases, the cervical mucus becomes very thin, clear and transparent like egg white, and the amount also increases, which contains nutrients such as sugar, vitamins and salts. It can supply the energy needed by the sperm, maintain the activity of the sperm, and help the sperm to continue to move up. In the late stage of ovulation, the cervical mucus becomes thick again due to the influence of progesterone, the nutrients are reduced, and it is not suitable for the passage of sperm. Therefore, it is easiest for sperm to pass through the cervix during ovulation, and it is more difficult for sperm to pass through the cervix at other times.
