What can you learn about your hormones in the luteal phase?

How can tracking BBT in the luteal phase provide insights into a woman's hormones and overall health?

During the luteal phase (that's the second half of your cycle, post-ovulation), your basal body temperature (BBT) tends to rise due to increased progesterone levels. This rise is like a little "hormonal high-five", indicating that your body has successfully ovulated.  

If you're diligently charting your BBT every morning, you can spot patterns. Here’s some examples: 

  • Consistently high temps during this phase might signal robust progesterone production. 
  • A luteal phase that is at least 10 days long shows that it is healthy. (Note that if you are trying to conceive the majority of practitioners will recommend aiming for a 12 day luteal phase).
  • A 'wonky' BBT pattern could raise a flag, indicating potential hormone imbalances or health issues. 
  • Maybe your temps resemble a rollercoaster ride, or they're consistently low. These fluctuations could hint at irregular ovulation, or other hormone-related issues that might need a closer look.

By keeping an eye on your BBT during the luteal phase, you're not just tracking ovulation, you're also getting valuable insights into your hormone health and overall well-being. It's like your body's secret code!
