Notes on the basal temperature curve
How to take your temperature:
1. Use a good digital thermometer that is not older than 2 years.
2. In the morning, take your temperature before getting up, preferably rectally and
always at the same time (preferably about 7 o'clock in the morning). Record the
temperature with a black dot in the appropriate box of your worksheet. If the
temperature is taken at another time, make a note of the time in the "details /
symptoms" box.
3. If your sleep was not good or you have a headache, cold or other illness, put a
cross instead of a dot in the box and make note of your symptoms in the
"particulars" box (i.e. 'flu')
4. Note your period with a cross on the bottom line. Include any spotting days (days
with a little brownish blood loss) with an "S" on the same line.
5. Cycle day 1 is the first day of menstrual bleeding. If your period is slow to start
and takes more than 18 hours to become normal, then count the next day as the first
cycle day.
Cervical mucus:
The cervical mucus is a good indicator to recognize the period of fertility. Each day,
note on your chart a description of the cervical mucus.
There are two ways to detect cervical mucus:
Visually: insert your finger into the vagina to take the mucus directly from the cervix
or look for signs of mucus on the toilet paper
Tactically: a feeling of moisture or dryness of the vagina
There are different types of mucus and each indicates a different stage of the cycle:
Dry: if there is a dry feeling in the vagina, the mucus is thick
→ little or no fertility
Moist, white, sticky, cloudy mucus:
→ evolving from not fertile to fertile
Abundant wet mucus
→ very fertile
Keep in mind that the most advantageous time to have sex is 3 to 5 days before
ovulation, once you identify fertile mucus.
