@melisslp:I used a Sejoy basal thermometer, I have been using it since october and so far it seems pretty good. I had a bit of weirdness about a week ago but I think that was me not the thermometer because it seems fine now.

I’m not sure if there are different thermometers for TTC and trying to avoid but I’ve used BD Basal Digital Thermometer and a glass basal thermometer (not sure who makes it). I personally like the glass thermometer better; it’s supposed to be more accurate and with the digital, my temps seemed to fluctuate a lot.

I don’t know what brand it is, I just got the pink one from target.  It was kind of an impulse buy actually lol.  I’d been thinking about starting to temp for a while, then I passed it in the store and was just time, eh why not now, haha. It seems to be accurate.  I just hate that it beeps, it wakes my Darling Husband up when I’m temping in the morning on the weekends :(.

I have a CVS brand BBT that I have been using that cost about $5. I can see the temp shifts when I actually do ovulate 😉

I just used the regular thermometer I already had. I didn’t see any reason to spend more money on one that said “BBT” and had an extra decimal place. In my opinion, it was just a gimmick, 1 decimal place is close enough to see the patterns.

I use the target basal body thermometer.  You want to get a basal body thermometer (BBT) in order for it to be accurate.  Mine is the pink one from target.  It also says fertility thermometer on it I believe. 

Using an online site to chart is really helpful too – fertility friend is what I use and it’s really popular.  They have a free and VIP version.

Hope that helps! Good luck!

i use the same digital one that @noenyu posted. it beeps which is annoying, but it lights up which is great when i’m temping early in the dark.

a basal body thermometer is recommended for charting for accuracy. mine doesn’t have an extra decimal point, but since i didn’t have a thermometer before and it seems like many are for detecting fever instead of basal temps, i figured this was the best way to go.
