When appropriate, Basal Temperature Charting may be the best and most cost effective way of understanding your cycle and also targeting the days when you are likely to be ovulating. During the consultation I will be happy to explain this very easy method and I can look through your completed charts at the end of each month. I would suggest charting for 3 months. Understanding that although this is a very proactive step towards taking some control over your fertility, it can become the focal point of every morning, so 3 months should be sufficient to get the picture.
Your basal body temperature is your temperature when you’re fully at rest. Ovulation may cause a slight increase in basal body temperature. You’ll be most fertile during the two to three days before your temperature rises. By tracking your basal body temperature each day, you may be able to predict when you’ll ovulate. In turn, this may help you determine when you’re most likely to conceive.
PCOS and Basal Temperature Charting is still very useful, unlike ovulation predictor kits.
