Your BBT can be used to tell you SO much about your hormone health – BUT it is important to know how to get accurate readings and what you’re looking for in your charts!
Tracking BBT is one of the methods I use when teaching clients how to use FAM (Fertility Awareness Method) when they’re TTC (trying to conceive) or TTA (trying to avoid)!
FAM (tracking my BBT + reading my cervical fluid) is what I’ve been using for years to avoid pregnancy (it’s highly effective when used correctly), and what I will use when we want to conceive in the future!
It also shows ovulation. At or around ovulation, we will ideally have a shift in temperature that we can later use to confirm that ovulation did occur.
In addition to imbalances and ovulation, BTT also can show us progesterone production. A successful, healthy ovulation is followed by an increase in progesterone. Progesterone is a bit warmer, so we should se an increase in tempature
If we don’t see an increase in temperature, that may be a sign of low progesterone or unsuccessful ovulation.
Finally, whether you’re TTA (trying to avoid) or TTC (trying to conceive) BBT can be used as a tool to assist you AND provide insight into your hormone health!
