BBA: Baby AspirinEach baby aspirin pill contains a mere fraction of the acetylsalicylic acid found in an adult-sized dosage. Standing at only 81 milligrams instead of the larger 325 milligram dose, baby aspirin is praised for its many health benefits with regard to heart disease. With respect to fertility, baby aspirin is sometimes recommended for women who are having trouble conceiving without aid. Low dose aspirin consumption is thought to promote ovarian activity. Aspirin’s blood thinning properties also aid the delivery of necessary blood transport to a developing fetus, thus decreasing the risk of miscarriage by blood clot.

Because this occurs almost exclusively during sleep, measuring body temperature after just waking up is one of the most accurate ways to track your BBT. By using a basal thermometer which tracks miniscule changes in temperature, it is possible to determine when you’re most likely to ovulate. Approximately three days after ovulation the body’s temperature increases .5 to 1.0 degrees above the average 97.45. After charting the body’s BBT trends it becomes possible to predict ovulation in advance (rather than three days after), which can aid in conception due to accurate scheduling.
