I am seeing different ways of taking your temps. I have been taking my orally for a few months and my temps are all over the place. i have read that sleeping with your mouth open will throw off the temp. What about taking it vaginally (sp) would that make it more correct?

any help would be great thank you!!

You will probably see a more consistent pattern by taking it vaginally, but don't switch in the middle of your cycle! Vaginal temps tend to be slightly higher than temps taken by mouth.

Lots of cities run classes on this, just not always through the hospital. I'm an instructor myself.

I've been taking my orally but might try taking them vaginally next month. Do you use a cover when taking them vaginally? Or just use a wipe afterwards to clean? Sorry this may be a stupid question, but I keep wondering about that. Thanks in advance!

I have been just wiping mine after with rubing alchole to make sure it is clean (after) then store it in the case it came in. My case is hard pastic and every few days i will also pour alchole in the case to kinda rinse it out.

I have wondered about his too. My temps have been all over the place. I wish there was a class in my area. I had never even heard of BBT charting until I starting searching the internet.
