How do I share my BBT Charts?
You can share your BBT Chart for any of your cycles. There are three easy ways to share a BBT Chart -- use any or all:

While using Fertility Charting's BBT Chart page, click Share My Chart to share the chart you are viewing.
How do I Tag BBT Charts, and why?
When you opt to share a specific fertility chart, you can assign tags to that chart. For each BBT chart, you can assign up to 12 menstrual cycle and fertility related tags. These tags are an additional way for you to tell your BBT chart viewing audience more about this fertility cycle and/or how you've interpreted your BBT chart. The tags you assign are displayed with this shared chart.
Examples of tags you can assign to your BBT chart: BFN, biphasic, BFP, triphasic, anovulatory, bbt charting after the pill or IUD or Depo Provera, while on clomid, when using an ovulation prediction kit.
If you are sharing your charts in the BBT Chart Room, visitors can search for fertility and ovulation charts using these tags.
How do I create a BBT Chart?
To share a BBT chart, you need to create it, and it couldn't be easier with MyMonthlyCycles Enhanced Fertility tools! BBT Charts are automatically generated based on your fertility cycle tracking data.
Each fertility cycle is defined by the first day of your menstrual period. Therefore, to start a new BBT chart, simply use the MyMonthlyCycles menstrual and fertility cycle calendar. Use the Track My Period Event to record your period start date. A new BBT chart is instantly started.
To enter your BBT and other fertility data, use the menstrual calendar's Fertility Tracking Event. On the Fertility Tracking Screen, enter your daily basal body temperature reading, along with other related fertility data (cervical fluid, cervical position, pregnancy test results, ovulation prediction kit (OPK) results, and more).
Note 1: Some of our members choose to use OPKs and fertility monitors in conjunction with, or instead of, BBT charting. Not a problem. Fill in whichever information pertains to how you track your fertility cycle. If you share your fertility charts, you may want to use either the About You or Chart Description field to make a note of this, so those viewing your charts understand how you chart your fertility -- but that's totally at your option. Using fertility chart tags is also a very easy way to summarize how you chart your fertility.
Note 2: You can create BBT charts for past cycles. Simply adjust your MyMonthlyCycles menstrual calendar date, start that cycle by recording your period start date, and then use the fertility entry screen to post your fertility data for that cycle.
Note 3: As soon as you start a BBT chart, you can share it in the BBT Chart Room, an excellent way for you to discuss your fertility chart and where you are in your fertility cycle with others. Each day, just log back in and post the current day's fertility activity, and your BBT chart is instantly updated.
