We have summarized a couple of questions that often come to mind when the summer is around the corner. Have a read!
Can warmer weather affect my basal body temperature?
– The answer is no not significantly! Your body is very good at maintaining itself at its optimal temperature since humans are warm blooded animals. Also, we do recommend you to measure under your tongue, and not on your skin or in the ear, which means that your reading is not affected by the outside factors such as room temperature or your clothes etc.
Can I still measure my BBT if I’m traveling abroad in another time zone?
If you travel across several time zones and experience jet lag then we recommend to skip measuring after the first night of sleep in the new destination. After you have adjusted to the new time schedule, you should measure as usual when you wake up in the morning in the new time zone. Remember to always skip measuring if you feel hungover or if you have slept less than usual! We know those summer nights can sometimes be endless 🙂
It’s also good to know that travelling can be stressful on the body, which means that it can sometimes affect your cycle causing for instance, a delayed ovulation, and therefore a bit more irregular cycles.
