When you are undergoing IVF treatment, the basal temperature of your body rises. This is why it’s important to follow certain instructions. Here are a few tips on how to monitor your BBT while you are undergoing IVF treatment.
Ovulation type medical thermometer
In the luteal phase of the cycle, the hormone progesterone is produced by the corpus luteum; this increases the BBT (basal body temperature). If the BBT stays at that elevated level for a few days, you can assume that ovulation has taken place. However, it’s very important to keep in view that the BBT chart can’t really predict ovulation; it can’t tell you when this is going to take place.
There was a time when doctors felt that this chart was a very useful tool. It gave the patient the ability to determine for herself whether she is ovulating; in addition, it gave the approximate date of ovulation as well. BBT charts aren’t difficult to obtain and all you need is a BBT thermometer. Here are some basic instructions to keep the BBT chart:
This is why, though this chart was considered to be a very useful method, it has very limited utility in the present day. Today, there are a number of newer and more accurate methods available. We always advice our patients not to check their BBT; it is nothing but a waste of time.
