Basal body temperature is a female-specific physiological characteristic. During the period from menstruation to ovulation, the basal body temperature is relatively low. After ovulation, the basal body temperature will suddenly rise by 0.2℃-0.5℃, and then the basal body temperature measured every day will remain high until the next menstrual period, and the body temperature will drop to the original level again. A biphasic curve means that there are distinct high temperature and low temperature phases in a cycle. Everyone's basal body temperature varies from person to person, so you don't have to worry too much about "how many degrees should it be".
Simply put, on the graph, the day before the warm-up day is the day of ovulation. In fact, it is not necessary for you to understand how to see the ovulation day from the body temperature curve (this requires systematic study), because as long as you keep measuring the temperature, the shecare APP will automatically calculate the ovulation day and the easy pregnancy period for you. After the app prompts you to enter the easy pregnancy period, just consummate every other day. This is why I recommend everyone to use the Shecare smart thermometer. The smart body thermometer and mobile APP can help you save your energy greatly, make predictions accurate, easy to use and not expensive. Why not use good fertility tools?
Basal body temperature can be obtained from 3 parts: oral cavity, vagina, anus. The temperature of these three parts is the most accurate. Because of usage habits, most of the products on the market are oral temperature measurement. The armpit\forehead temperature is actually inaccurate, it cannot meet the accuracy requirements of basal body temperature.
Before going to bed, put the Shecare smart basal thermometer at the head of the bed within reach. When you wake up the next day, turn on the thermometer, put it under your tongue, and start measuring against the base of your tongue. Keep your mouth tightly closed when measuring, lie still and wait for the prompt sound to complete the temperature measurement, which only takes 1-2 minutes. Remove the thermometer from the mouth and put it back on the head of the bed. Try to keep the temperature at the same time every day (for example, take the temperature at 7:00 every morning) and not exceed one hour at most.
Changes of cervical mucus: The cervical mucus is opaque white or light yellow in the early stage of the cycle, showing a viscous, creamy, and not easy to draw. Sometimes it looks like cheese or yogurt.
The closer to ovulation, as estrogen increases, the cervical mucus gradually increases, and it becomes easier to draw. From sticky to wet and slippery. Therefore, it is often compared to the shape of an egg white. Sometimes cervical mucus is even watery and difficult to see with the naked eye. At this time, the vaginal opening will feel abnormally moist. Cervical mucus peaks on the day of ovulation. After ovulation, the secretion of cervical mucus decreases. Gradually transition back to opaque, viscous, less brushed, and sparse. The vaginal opening will feel dry without any discharge.
Actual research has found that each woman has its own unique cervical mucus pattern. Some women's cervical mucus will change according to the law of dry, wet, sticky, and brushed, while others may change according to the law of dry, white, undrawn, and translucent. But all cervical mucus changes follow a regular pattern of peaks.
Many friends have such questions, and some will send photos of bulk ovulation test strips to ask if they have ovulated. In fact, it is impossible to confirm whether you have ovulated through ovulation test strips. If your menstrual period is relatively regular, it is recommended that you start taking home ovulation test strips on the third day after the end of menstruation, once a day; if your menstrual cycle is irregular, start measuring on the 15th day of the entire menstrual cycle, once a day. When the strongest positive is detected, test the test strip every 4 hours. When the strong positive is detected to become weak, it means that ovulation will occur within 24-48 hours. At this time, you can consummate, but the test strip cannot detect whether the ovulation has occurred. Basal body temperature is the gold standard for confirming ovulation.
The basal body temperature can be detected by determining whether the ovulation day has occurred, and taking Shecare as an example, due to the existence of the shecare BBT chart APP and the background algorithm, we will accurately predict the ovulation day according to the user's body temperature data, allowing you to prepare as you approach ovulation.
Many friends have asked this question. They have been preparing for pregnancy for a period of time, and their body is normal when they go to check, but they are not pregnant. What we want to tell you is, just relax, it's normal to not get pregnant for a year after trying to conceive. Find a good state of mind first. Continued tension and anxiety will affect your physical state, so don't worry.
