What is basil body temperature?

Basil Body Temperature As An Ovulation Predictor

Many women use their basil body temperature as an ovulation predictor. A basil body temperature is the lowest, normal body temperature that is taken as soon as a woman awakens in the morning. It is necessary to keep a chart beside your bed, and monitor your temperatures on a daily basis.

* You'll need to take your temperature before you get out of bed for the most accurate results.
* Avoid eating, drinking, smoking, and even talking for the best reading.
* Take your temperature at the same time every day.

When your temperature raises slightly, ovulation is probably indicated.
