The BBT chart is a kind of ovulation calculator that lets you identify your fertility period. Before measuring your BBT, you must know the factors affecting BBT.

The BBT chart is a kind of ovulation calculator that lets you identify your fertility period. Before measuring your BBT, you must know the factors affecting BBT.

Take note that there are some factors that can affect your basal body temperature. It doesn’t mean that charting will be impossible, but it’s a good idea to mark these readings as questionable so your BBT chart will be easier to follow later.

Some things that may influence your BBT include:

1. Being sick or having a fever

2. Drinking alcohol the previous night

3. Certain drugs or medications

4. Stress

5. Moving around before taking your BBT

6. A broken thermometer or changing thermometers during your cycle

7.Sleeping less than 5 hours during the night or not getting at least 3 consecutive hours of sleep before measuring

8. Oversleeping

9. Taking your BBT at a different time than usual

10. Using electric blankets or heating pads when you don’t normally

11. Change in room temperature

12. Gynecological health issues

13. Thyroid disorders

14. Traveling to a new time zone or Daylight Savings Time

15. Working night shift

Any of the above factors can cause your BBT reading to be higher or lower than it normally would be. Just remember to make a note in your Ela daily log about these questionable readings. If there’s ever any confusion as to what’s going on with your fertile window, you can always pay close attention to your cervical mucus or cervical position for signs of fertility as well.

Alcohol is also one of the factors affecting bbt...it can raise the temperature the morning after. Taking alcohol several times is not friendly with bbt checking...if you're taking more than one glass of it...shift ur checking the next day..it will give you clear result then.

Overweight or obesed body can cause many complications with the health....one of them is excess body fat can produce certain hormones more than the required amount and that can disrupt ovulation. It will ultimately hinder pregnancy as well.
