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 during the second half of the cycle (the luteal phase). This is the phase post ovulation, when the body temperature is naturally higher because of the more relaxed progesterone hormone helping to create the environment necessary to support a successful pregnancy.
We help lots of ladies learn how to chart their Basal Temperature to give them a greater chance of natural conception.
