I just started temping this month and was wondering if I should be taking my temp via mouth (I have been) or another way. If the other way, do you use covers or something? Sorry, I am totally naive to this whole charting thing. Thank in advance!!

i temp vaginally cuz i snore and am a mouth breather. i don't use a cover, I just have my BBT and use it exclusively for temping vaginally. no turning back once it's been there. i don't temp during AF cuz of the mess. I wash it with soap and water or a baby wipe.
if i ever try temping orally, ill have to get a new BBT.
I am also a mouth breather so can't temp orally and I don't feel comfortable using the BBT vaginally so I use mine under my armpit. It seems to work pretty well for me, but pretty sure it is not the most accurate way to do it.
