Charting your basal body temperature is an inexpensive and effective way to monitor your hormone levels, ovulation, and fertility. Basal body temperature (BBT) is your resting temperature taken when you first wake up in the morning, before getting out of bed. It's important to take your temperature as close as possible to the same time every morning.
