BBT works OPK better: Basal body temperature with a special thermometer works, but the temperature rises after you ovulate. Ovulation predictor kits are more useful when ttc as they go positive 1-1.5 days before you ovulate, so you know your most fertile days.

Basal body temperatures-- what should they be when your ovulating?

Not a fan of bbt: At ovulation a woman's temperature will rise 1/2 to 1 degree. In all my years as a practicing md & ovulating woman, I have encountered far more confusion re: this "method" than actual empowerment. It's hard to get that just right BBT every am for months at a time & then to properly discern a pattern- frequently when you ovulated becomes clear once its too late- just use the pee on a stick lh kits! ...Read more
