Hey all... I just started temping and I have heard va___ally is the best way to get an accurate result.. i bought a bbt but it says on there for oral use only... so I was just wondering about that. I took my temp orally today, obviously cause AF is still around... and i have no problems with that if its accurate enough than I'll just continue to do it orally... but what do ya'll think>?

It's plenty accurate to temp orally. I always have, and my charts have almost always been easy to interpret. Temping v____ally is supposed to give you more stable temperatures, but I don't really think it's necessary unless you find that your oral temps are really erratic and hard to see patterns in. Happy temping!

I agree with Lin, i have always temped orally and have always been able to see a clear thermal shift. I find it to be easier and accurate enough for its purpose.

I don't think v____al temping is more accurate... I secretly tried for one month and it just made my temps super high!!!! But I did a cross test between oral and they were basically the same pattern... just v____al was a much higher temperature but in the same rise and fall segements.. :)

thanks Krissy!! i'm not going to go that route now.. if oral will do it than that works for me... :)
