Mouth Breathing and Lower Temperatures

Mouth Breathing and Lower Temperatures

Ovulation calculators and BBT charts are affected by many factors. While it is the best way to track fertility, mouth breathing affects BBT chart. Here is how.

Mouth breathing can happen for different reasons. It could be out of habit, or it might happen occasionally because someone is experiencing a nasal obstruction, usually caused by being sick.

Breathing through your mouth will most likely affect your oral temperature so you may notice that your BBT readings are lower than usual. It’s pretty tough to correct for this but don’t worry, it shouldn’t significantly impact your ability to track. Simply make a note of it in Ela so you’ll remember why these temperatures seem a little strange. Otherwise, you should be able to interpret your chart and see your ovulation patterns. If you find that you’re still having trouble, consider your alternatives, like switching to vaginal readings, for better accuracy.

I think a proper diet is very important to have a healthy ovulation. This way it will be easy to keep BBT chart, too. We should have enough protein, iron, zinc, vitamin C, and vitamin D in our diet. Deficiencies in these nutrients may disturb ovulation and fertility, too. A healthy body tends to ...

Everything is so complex. Now, this mouth breathing also affects BBT. I think BBT is not a trustworthy way of tracking ovulation. Because temperature might be affected with a number of reasons.
