Hi sis, Dapat start ka magchart ng bbt mo from cd1 kapag daw biglang tumaas means magovulate ka na Dapat bd na hehe. You can buy thermometer on Watson and mercury drug mine I bought it from UST para sana sa mga pamangkin ko. Pero sabi ng Ob ko hinde daw ito ganun ka accurate. Yung friend ko ob niya si dr sua lao opk pinagamit sa kanya.

Sis, i do mine everyday perpetual na logging ko ng bbt ko kaya nakikita ko na pattern. Temps usually dip to the lowest level on my day 13 usually then biglang magspike up sa day14. Dun ko alam na nagovulate nako. I have a hard time determining if im ovulating using the OPK di ko talaga ma-gets yun. Pero it works like a preg test kit.
I SUPER UBER LOVE GIRLTALK!

hi sis janixx, i've charted my BBT for 3 months na. i read somewhere na if super irregular daw ang cycle mo, charting BBT will help you determine kelan ka ovulate. sa case ko, based sa mga charts ko, nagoovulate ako ng late as in CD21-27. gaya ng sabi ni sis Lei_Glee, once nagdip yun BBT mo then bigla taas ng mga .4 the next day that's the time na you have ovulated na. try mo din ichart sa fertilityfriend sis, sasabihin dun base sa mga temps mo kung nagovulate kana. :D
"God has a perfect timing, never early and never late, and it takes a little patience and a lot of faith. Thy will be done, Oh Lord, according to Your will."

Hi Sis:

I suggest to try to buy the BBT thermometer either sa drug store or sa OB mo mismo. Take note, that you need to get the BBT thermometer and not just the regular/normal one dahil BBT is more precise (e.g. normal thermometer will just say 36.4 whereas BBT will say 36.48). You need the precision kasi you have to track the changes on a day to day basis and see the pattern. I suggest that you go onto fertilityfriend.com and use that to record your temperatures (or baka may app available din na libre) and you will see it in a graph - mas madaling intindihin. With Fertility friend, after a few cycles, it will be able to give you an average of your cycle length, ovulation phase, luteal phase, and it will even tell you when you should expect your period to come. It will also predict when the ovulation will take place - pero of course, you need to keep on recording the temperature para ma confirm and ma monitor kung tugma ba ang calculation vs. actual. After a few cycles, mas nagiging accurate ang calculation and prediction ng ovulation and menses dates so you generally have an idea when to "time" things.

Aside from this, I URGE you to buy the ClearBlue fertility monitor. It's a bit expensive and you have to keep on buying the refill sticks every time you run out (every month you probably need to use 10). You use one stick in the morning, sa akin the monitor asked me to start testing by CD8 and eventually dahil the monitor is able to "learn" and "register" my cycles, I would get my peak by CD14, after that, hindi ko na kailangang gumamit pa ng extra sticks. But as the monitor is getting to know you, it will ask you to test early and then minsan sa simula, hindi niya madetect kung kelan ang "Peak". Anyway, the monitor is supposed to tell you, based on the amount of hormones in your urine if you are close to ovulating ("High") or ovulating ("Peak"). Then you time your BD'ing.

So in the end, I recorded my BBT and the results of the fertility monitor stick every morning on the Fertility Friend website. After a few months, I could already see the pattern and it really helps a lot in terms of timing the BD, to managing my emotions/expectations during the two week wait. Kumbaga, kung alam ko kung kailan ako nag ovulate at na-timing ko yung BD, mas malakas ang loob ko during the TWW.

Another reason why I liked doing the your BBT and  ovulation tests, is that na-schedule ko ang pag-inom ng grapefruit juice at acupuncture. May mga times kasi na ideal for acupuncture (according to my chinese med doctor). At syempre the grapefruit juice really helps with the CM.

Anyway, mabalik tayo sa fertility monitor. I suggest you get the fertility MONITOR and not the disposable tests. In the long run I think mas nakamura ako than if I got the digital ovulation test. Feeling ko din, mas accurate dahil it tells me clearly kung "Low" "High" or "Peak". Some of the other digital ovulation tests are a bit confusing sa result - may iba just shows you just "smiley" faces for a few days eh minsan imposible talaga to BD 5 days in a row.

The fertility monitor plus a box of sticks cost me about SGD$200 (pinabili ko). Then subsequent boxes of the refills are $50, each box contains about 20 sticks. Siguro kung may relatives kayo sa US or UK mas mura doon.

Sorry, napahaba ulit.

grabe sobrang grateful ako sa mga natutunan ko sa inyo sissies.  ;D :) ;) maraming salamat for taking time to share  :) :) :) super irregs rin kasi ako.


Lei_Glee - thank you sis, ako rin di ko minsan ma gets ang mga binabasa ko dito sa mga threads pagdating sa monitoring of if you're ovulating or not. ang naiisip ko dati parang thermometer lang to pangkuha ng lagnat. pero iba pala.

ladybunny_janet1272 - salamat sis for sharing parang ngayon ko pa rin siya iniintindi. like kahapon ng 2pm dumating si AF parang spotting lang afternoon till night pero nung mga 11pm na ang lakas pati madaling araw.. mahabang aralin to..he he...

presyosa ligaya - maraming salamat sis super nakakarelate ako sa sinasabi mo. so mali pala ang charting ko all these years talaga. parati ako si CD14 kala ko dun ako nagoovulate pero yun nga kaya nagtataka ako minsan na CD14 na parang ang dry and lapot pa rin ng fluids ko. then sa mga CD25 dun pa ako minsan parang naglilibong he he....kaya pala..salamat for sharing..

Priceless - sis maraming salamat sa mahaba mong love letter dami kong natutunan. helps a lot. though parang kailangan ko to makita sa personal ang mga thermometer nato kasi wala akong idea talaga pati how it looks like..tingnan ko sa site na minention mo...

sana marami pang sisters na magshare about this monitoring their body temperature...i look forward to learn more and eventually maging bihasa nako personally. maraming salamat sisses for being so generous to share all the ideas and knowledge you got.   :-* :-* :-*

Just started charting last month and been very diligent in taking my temps around 6am in the morning.  Kahit weekend nagigising na ako.  Actually excited ako to take my temp every morning haha weird ko talaga.  As one of our Sis here mentioned, advisable talaga ito especially dun sa mga irregular para mas makita niya kung kelan yung ovulation day niyo.  Minsan kase ang akala ng marami ang ovulation nangyayari sa gitna ng Cycle (if 28 day cycle - CD 14 / 30 day cycle - CD 15), ganyan din ang akala ko pero now I know that pwedeng early or late ovulation. And it's also a good way to know your Lutheal Phase (period from ovulation to the day before CD1), you'd know if you have enough days para mag-implant yung egg sa uterus mo.  That usually happens around 10DPO, so if mas maunti yung LP pwede mo na agad gawan ng paraan or consult your doctor to know kung ano gagawin para pahabain yung LP.

Pag matataas ang bbt kahit 2 weeks after ovulation does that mean na buntis na?

^that's a good sign Sis! But take a HPT to confirm.  Have you tested yet?

Just to add:
do you know your usual luteal phase?
Ilang dpo ka na Sis?
Are you experiencing any other sign other than an elevated temperature?

two cycles na ko nag chachart ng BBT ko. base on my pattern, bumababa temp ko when it's my ovulation day then mag spike up siya tuloy tuloy na until i reached the day before my period arrives. dun nag tetemp dip ako. and yes, i agree, super helpful yung fertility monitor.

sis rheagirl, try mo gamitin fertility friend. google mo lang siya. log mo dun every morning yung temperatures mo. makikita mo yung chart mo. marami ring useful infos yung site. :)

Mga Sis, first cycle ko na mag monitor ng BBT and today is CD18 na pero ang super baba pa rin ng temp ko. Sana late lang ovulation ko.

May naka experience na ba sa inyo na hindi tumaas ang temp hanggang dumating ang next cycle?

zhajhei_08 - hello sis BBT is basal body temperature, then yung CD is Cycle day. (CD1 = cycle day 1 (first day menstruation mo, as in full flow. yung spotting daw kasi hindi counted yun.) Hope that helps.  :)

Eto useful link din para sa ibang terms;
