Detecting Ovulation With a Basal Body Temperature Chart
Usually there is a drop in temperature just before ovulation and a sudden rise afterwards. But knowing this is what happens and doing something about it are two different things entirely. Keeping a recording of your daily temperature and charting it, then interpreting the measurements into meaningful information, takes a certain level of commitment and motivation. It is a baseline which is then used to compare any rise or fall over the course of each month. In order to be effective, a woman needs to take her temperature before she even gets out of bed and when she has been asleep for at least four hours and preferably more. It is important for her to take her temperature before eating, drinking or going to the bathroom and before any sexual activity — all of which raise the heart rate and in turn, the body temperature from its baseline level.
Basal body temperature chart
You may find it helpful to keep a menstrual calendar or a special fertility awareness chart. By doing so, you can get to know your body, learn what is normal for you, and become an advocate for and authority on your own health. Any print or online calendar or diary can be used to chart when you bleed, whether and when you have vaginal secretions, and whether you have a range of physical or emotional experiences including pain or cramps; heavier or lighter flow; change in sexual desire, energy level or mood; swollen or tender breasts; or any difference in your general physical health. You can find menstrual charts at the Taking Care of Your Fertility website.
Charting Your Menstrual Cycle

About 2 weeks before your period you will ovulate , which means that one of your ovaries has released an egg.
