This thermometer is very accurate digital basal thermometer for measuring body temperature to 2 decimal places. AVOID thermometers which measure to only 1 decimal place (these are useless for charting BBT).
Chart your Basal Body Temperature & predict ovulation - your most fertile time of the month to conceive a baby!
When a woman ovulates, a rise in body temperature takes place in order to provide a more fertile environment for conception. By monitoring when this temperature change occurs, you can determine when ovulation takes place in your cycle. Recording each day's basal body temperature with a basal thermometer will help you predict ovulation!

What Is a Basal Body Temperature (BBT)?
Basal temperature is the lowest normal body temperature of a person immediately upon awakening in the morning - BEFORE you get up, move around, eat, drink, smoke, talk - if possible, while you are still "half asleep". The best reading of your basal temperature can be taken at the same time every morning when you first awake.
Why Is BBT Charting Helpful?
Charting your basal temperature is helpful in determining whether and when ovulation occurs. Ovulation is the release of an egg (ovum) from the ovary and ordinarily happens only ONCE in each menstrual cycle. Conception can take place only if intercourse takes place at or near this time, during the interval of transition between low and high temperatures.
By carefully recording your basal temperature when you first awaken, you will begin to notice a pattern of temperature fluctuation in your monthly cycle. The slight increase in basal temperature is an indication of ovulation or fertility by which you can regulate a pattern on activity to either achieve conception or avoid pregnancy.
Boost your baby-making chances: chart your basal body temperature and cervical mucus. If you purchase a Basal Thermometer I will email you a free blank Basal Body Temperature & Cervical Muscus Chart template which you can print off to help you keep track of your BBT.
Looking for a cheap, low-tech way to pinpoint your fertile time? Experts say the best way to detect ovulation is to combine a daily reading of your basal body temperature (your temperature when you first wake up in the morning) with monitoring the texture of your cervical mucus. Chart your cycle for a few months so you can recognise your pattern and have a better chance of predicting your most fertile days.
How to do it: Start keeping track of your temperature on the first day of your period using a basal body thermometer, which shows minute changes in your temperature. A digital thermometer can also work, although it's not as accurate. Take your basal body temperature and plot it on a chart. Then check your cervical mucus. Using your fingers or toilet paper, note its consistency. You may also want to monitor its texture throughout the day. Most women will see a spike in their temperature, signalling that they've ovulated, and notice that their mucus looks and feels like raw egg white at around the same time. When the two coincide, it's baby-making time. :-)
