Measuring my temperature
Hi, could someone please explain the procedures in taking your temperature. We are ready for little baby now and I have been off the pill for 4 months. We have been having regular intercourse during the ovulation period, but no luck yet. I have heard about taking your temperature, but do not know anything about it. When to take it, what should the temperature be, etc.
I would aprreciate your help

Dear Illa

I certainly do not recommend temperature monitoring for ovulation purposes. Instead, I would suggest that you use urinary testing kits which are available such as CLEARPLAN etc, which have proven to be much more accurate then temperature monitoring.
Full instructions accompany such kits.
