Standard graph of measurement of basal temperature well, at least from time to time, doctors strongly recommend to conduct every woman of reproductive age. Because it indirectly, but all the same allows to judge about the specific timing of the reproductive health of women, and about the state of her endocrine system. In addition, the testimony of such a graph are going to be able to warn the woman about the likely occurrence of pregnancy, some hormonal disorders, as well as the development of some serious gynecological diseases. Thus, the retention of some time of your basal body temperature at higher elevations directly during menstruation can be considered a realistic indication of the disease such as endometritis.
It should, however, be noted that most often our basal body temperature is measured to determine the time of ovulation if necessary, pregnancy planning. Because the keeping of the schedule of basal temperature, you can easily calculate that the most favorable period for a full-fledged successful conception or to diagnose the so-called anovulation, when your egg is not at all Matures. You should know that literally every healthy women of reproductive age in the norm may be a few such anovulatory cycles per year, but if a full ovulation does not occur consistently, and so from month to month, then, of course, in this case we are talking about a very serious violation of the reproductive function of the female body.
As many know, the normal duration of the menstrual cycle in each individual woman can dramatically vary, and accordingly the schedule of basal temperature of the female body is also always strictly individual. However, no matter what full ovulation occurs almost always in exactly fourteen days in advance of your date next month. So, for example, if your next period should, in your opinion, to begin fifteenth day, it is the first date you can expect your ovulation.
Actually this date is usually shared by the whole of the female menstrual cycle in three separate phases (of course, not counting the menstruation). Namely, the first phase is conventionally occur prior to ovulation (doctors call her follicular phase), the second is the actual ovulation (which doctors call ovulatory) and respectively to the third phase is conventionally occurring immediately after a full ovulation (doctors call this the luteal phase or phase yellow body). And, of course, all these separate periods of hormonal background of the women is radically different. So in the first phase usually dominated by the hormone estrogen, and under the influence, your basal body temperature will be kept at a relatively low level. But the phase of the yellow body, as a rule, goes on amid several high level of the hormone progesterone, which can actively contribute to raising your basal temperature. And between these two end phases must be some sort of “drop” temperature not less than a few tenths of a degree, but rather to 0,4 or 0,5 C. Actually in this case it would be to say that in this particular full cycle ovulation took place. Though very many women on the day of ovulation may occur and a drop in basal body temperature with further strong growth, and this means that in any case our third phase of the menstrual cycle can occur only at a slightly increased basal body temperature of women.
Day, in which your basal body temperature will make quite a dramatic leap in performance up (of course, not less than two-tenths of a degree), and will be thereby afternoon reaching full of ovulation. At the same time is quite ripe for subsequent fertilization of the egg quietly leaves the ruptured follicle and actually rushes directly into the abdominal cavity and there she calmly waits for a meeting with his most powerful and the most active sperm. Itself the egg as you have probably already heard, will live just only one day, and therefore for successful conception it would be nice to active sperm was already waiting for her here in the woman’s body at the same time.
It should also be recalled that the average basal body temperature, measured in the first phase of the menstrual cycle may be equal to approximately 36,3 or 36.5 degrees. Additionally, in this phase of the basal temperature may slightly fluctuate up then down a bit literally one or two tenths of a degree, and so can occur virtually throughout the first menstrual period. As you know, immediately before the onset of full-fledged ovulation occurs a slight increase in basal temperature rather its sharp jump (but in some particular cases, as we have previously discussed, can be observed a slight decrease). Next day itself reaching full ovulation basal body temperature usually reaches its mark in an average of 37.1 and up to 37,3 With. Although, of course, these data may be somewhat different in each case and each individual woman. The most important is only a little gap in such indicators of basal temperatures between different phases.
It is also important to note that to receive the most accurate and most importantly reliable data you will need to follow very simple but clear rules when measuring basal body temperature. Such measurements should be made every morning, preferably on an empty stomach and it is also desirable to make such measurements is strictly one and the same time without any weekends or holidays. The your thermometer should always be in direct proximity to the bed itself, because to get up or to do any too sudden movements or get physical load to measure basal temperature is absolutely impossible for a woman to correct data needed absolute rest.
Determine the date of ovulation by measuring the basal body temperature
In addition to specifically your schedule accurately and correctly reflect the existing reality, the basal temperature should be measured after long period of continuous sleep for a total duration of no less than a few hours (and ideally even at least six hours). Any violation of these simple rules, like many other extraneous factors really will be able to influence the possible indicators. Definitely try to note in this chart all that could distort the results of your measurements: both in big, and in the smaller side. This may be the duration of sleep, and going to the toilet for example at night, and active sexual acts that took place shortly before your measurement, and the reception of some medicines, and even colds or other ailments, as well as physical or nervous exhaustion, and possibly the use of any alcoholic beverages and so on.
It is important to remember that with proper planning pregnancy into account, might take a graph measuring the basal body temperatures, built strictly according to the results, well, at least, three or even four of the last menstrual cycle, and this means that according to the results of the last three or four months.
