FertilChart - Fertility Charting

Your basal body temperature BBT is the temperature of your body at rest. For fertility charting, the temperature is always taken in the morning before you move or get out of bed.About half of all couples will get pregnant after 5-6 months of trying to conceive, and 85% will be pregnant within one year. But fertile couples who know when they are fertile and who make love frequently during their fertile days, have a better chance getting pregnant sooner.

If you are anxious to get pregnant soon, then the BabyMed BBT (basal body temperature) chart is the tool you'll need. Here is an example of a completed BabyMed Fertility Chart for one month.

By charting your basal body temperature (BBT) you can learn more about your fertility and keeping a BBT chart is a very exciting way to get pregnant. It makes you understand your body and often gives trying to conceive (TTC) more of a purpose.

You should start your fertility charting to find out exactly when and if you ovulate and whether you had intercourse at the right time. Fertility or basal body temperature charting is done for several reasons.Why Chart?
Fertility or basal body temperature charting is done for several reasons:

Charting your BBTs is easy. Basically, what you are doing is taking your
temperature first thing each day and plotting the temperature on a
chart.

What you are looking for is to see a shift of at least .4 degrees Fahrenheit after ovulation making your chart biphasic (showing low temperatures before ovulation in the follicular phase, and higher ones after ovulation in the luteal phase).

Biphastic Curve

Your temperature may go up and stay up above the coverline for 14-16 days after ovulation. That is called a "biphasic curve".

The human body does not often follow very precise rules. And neither does your temperature chart. That's why built-in calculations of your basal body temperature charts often fail and give you wrong answers.

Here, on BabyMed, we are the only online charting system where a real fertility expert takes a close look at your chart and adjusts your chart based on many years of experience. And it's FREE.

Is Low Body Temperature a Concern?

A normal human body temperature is on average 98.6 F (37 C) orally. The normal range can be as low as 97.5 and as high as 98.8 F (36.4 to 37.1 C). The body temperature is considered dangerously low when it's below 95 F (35 C). There are some people with average temperatures in the 96 F range who are fine.

You should decide at the beginning of BBT temperature charting what you consider the beginning of a new day, either after midnight or when you wake up. Both choices are OK.

There is sometimes a question when you should consider the beginning of a new day. Do you go by the calendar and does the new day begin after midnight? If you make love at  1 minute after midnight, is that a new day or the previous day? Or does a new day begin in the morning, when you wake up?
