Ovulation (BBT) Chart Guide

Ovulation (BBT) Chart

BBT Chart is a ovulation chart to predict ovulation by charting your basal body temperature & cervical mucus. You need to get a basal thermometer (available at most drugstores). This charting is a great way of seeing & understanding your menstrual cycle, ovulation and monthly period.

Tracking your BBT can help you get pregnant. The patterns you see month after month can help you predict ovulation – and once you know when you're likely to ovulate, you can have sex (or plan insemination) at the best time for conceiving.

When you look at the sample chart, remember that every woman's cycle is different, and your personal chart may not look like the example or even be the same month to month.

Get started on your BBT chart now & learn better ways to predict your ovulation time.

Starting with the day you get your period, fill in the dates & days of the week that correspond to your menstrual cycle. (the day you get your period is cycle day 1).

Each day, take your temperature with a basal thermometer & check your cervical mucus. Put a dot on the chart next to the temperature that matches what you read on your thermometer & record what your cervical mucus looks like. You can connect the dots to see how your basal temperature fluctuates from day to day.

Towards the end of your cycle, go back & look for the day you ovulated. It's usually the last day that your cervical mucus looks like raw egg whites or the day afterward & it's followed two or three days later by a sustained bump in temperature. Highlight that day & take note of what cycle day it was.

During your next cycle, fill out the chart again & see whether you ovulate on the same cycle day or not. When you do this for a few months, you may start to see a pattern that will enable you to predict when in your cycle, you ovulate.

Figure out your pattern. If you ovulate on or near the same day in each cycle, you 're in luck. Now you know when you'll be ovulating next cycle (and therefore when to have sex). If your day of ovulation varies, use your charts to see whether any other pattern emerges like for example, when you're about to ovulate, you have two or three days of egg white cervical mucus & then your temperature takes a little dip before rising the next day. Every women's body is different, so it's up to you to read the signs.

Have sex at least every other day during your most fertile period for the best chance of conceiving. Your most fertile period is about five days long from three days before ovulation until one day after.
