How to measure basal temperature
At the pharmacy you can ask for a thermometer suitable for detecting the aforementioned temperature.

It is necessary to measure the temperature in the morning before getting out of bed and always at the usual time to make the survey accurate. The temperature can be measured by the way oral, rectal or vaginal.
The important thing is to always detect it from the same place because these three areas have different temperatures. The advice is to detect it vaginally or rectally.
