Use these instructions only if you are using a thermometer that measures your temperature in degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius.
To make a chart, get a piece of graph paper.
The numbers across the top of the chart are the days of your menstrual cycle. The first day of your period is Day 1. Shade the box on the grid that matches your temperature for that day. Draw a line connecting the shaded squares so you can see your dips and spikes.
