BBT Patterns That Indicate Fertility Issues

BBT Patterns That Indicate Fertility Issues

In my 15+ years of practice, I’ve seen tens of thousands of BBT charts. I quickly started recognizing distinct relationships between the waves of a woman’s BBT chart and her ovulation patterns, quality and quantity of cervical discharge, estrogen and progesterone levels, FSH, egg quality, and likelihood to present with PMS. In fact, with one look at a BBT chart, I can usually pinpoint the major reasons a woman is struggling to get pregnant. 

While many women keep BBT charts as a way to predict ovulation, there's actually SOOOOOO much more a BBT chart can tell you — and when ovulation is occurring is usually the least important. 

Here are are a few things I immediately look for as warning signs of fertility issues...

How You Can Pinpoint Fertility Issues With Your BBT Chart

Tracking your basal body temperature (BBT) can be great for predicting ovulation so you and your partner will know the best time to get it on, but that's not the only trick your BBT can do. Basal body temperature charts (BBTs) can also help you identify possible fertility issues. 

While it’s ideal to see an obvious biphasic BBT chart — that's a chart with low temperatures the first half of the cycle and high temperatures the second half — many women experience all kinds of variations. And those variations can give us clues into what may be going on with your fertility.

What is BBT?

BBT stands for basal body temperature. Basal body temperature is the body’s resting temperature and an important indicator of your fertile potential.
