Reading a Basal Temperature Chart

Recording and charting a woman’s basal temperature can help to assess when a woman is ovulating.

The average range of BBTs is between 97.0 – 97.7 Fahrenheit (36.11 – 36.5 Celsius) before a woman ovulates and 97.7 – 99.0 Fahrenheit (36.5 – 37.22 Celsius) after ovulation. Ideally, a woman’s temperature will not bounce around more than 0.5 degrees in the follicular phase or first half of the cycle.

The temperature will then stay above the highest reading given during the first half of the cycle. This is called the luteal phase, the phase post ovulation, when the body temperature is naturally higher because of the progesterone hormone being relaxed to help create the environment necessary to support a successful pregnancy.

I help lots of the ladies I work with to chart their Basal Temperature to give them a greater chance of natural conception.
