If the woman wishes to follow the basal temperature method, she should keep in mind a series of tips or recommendations for taking temperature measurements as accurately as possible:
- Basal temperature is ideally measured orally, vaginally or rectally.
- Once the site is chosen, it should always be measured in the same place.
The same thermometer should always be used and should be ready on the bedside table.
- The basal temperature measurement should be taken upon waking and before getting up, always at the same time.
In addition, the woman should be at rest while taking the basal temperature measurement, without any type of activity.
