TempCue Basal Body Temperature Kit
The TempCue is a revolutionary new basal (BBT) digital thermometer that connects directly to the OvaGraph Fertility Charting App through your smartphone. Charting for ovulation has never been so convenient!
A Connected Basal Thermometer that Automates Fertility Charting!
The TempCue is a revolutionary new basal body temperature (BBT) thermometer that connects directly to the OvaGraph Fertility Charting App through your smartphone. With TempCue, you can easily take your basal temperature upon waking, and the data will be saved, charted, and interpreted automatically according to the Fertility Awareness Method by OvaGraph – the official app of Toni Weschler’s bestselling book, Taking Charge of Your Fertility.

Monitoring your basal body temperature is a tried and true method that has been used by women for decades to help identify when ovulation has occurred. By measuring your BBT daily – and other key fertility indicators – OvaGraph’s proprietary algorithm will be able to detect the telltale signs that reveal your fertility status at any given point in your cycle.
How BBT Charting with TempCue Helps You Conceive
Charting your basal body temperature (BBT), also called your waking temperature, is one of the most time-tested ways to track your fertility status and confirm when, and if, you are ovulating. By taking and charting your BBT throughout your menstrual cycle, you will be able to detect the natural rise in your temperature that occurs after ovulation, allowing you to pinpoint the days in your cycle that you are fertile – a key to achieving pregnancy naturally! If you are consistent about taking and charting your BBT daily, once ovulation occurs, you will see a temperature rise (it’s important to note this rise is quite subtle) after ovulation and throughout the rest of your menstrual cycle. Typically, the shift occurs about 24 hours after ovulation and the temperature rise is around .4º F, however, this can vary from woman to woman.
For decades, women have been charting their BBT with a pencil and a piece of graph paper, and eye-balling the temperature shifts. Using a set of advanced algorithms, TempCue and OvaGraph will automatically interpret your BBT data, and will display a possible ovulation date and a cover line once a temp shift occurs. BBT charting with TempCue is so easy it’s almost fun!
A Seamless Upgrade Path to More Data
BBT charting detects the natural rise in your temperature that takes place once ovulation has occurred and your body has become progesterone dominant. The temperature rise occurs after ovulation has occurred so it can’t predict your ovulation day in that same cycle.
Additional data can be helpful to get a more timely and complete picture of what is going on with a cycle. The Fairhaven Health saliva sensor and cervical mucus sensor can be added on to the TempCue Basal Thermometer Kit to provide additional data. These sensors measure electrolyte resistance in your saliva and cervical fluid which correlates to the changes in your hormones, specifically estrogen and progesterone. Using the trends in your hormones, ovulation can be predicted up to 7 days in advance. Like the TempCue sensor, the oral and vaginal sensors also sync automatically with OvaGraph, the official fertility charting app of Taking Charge of Your Fertility.

Here’s our list of most frequently asked questions. If your question is not listed or you need further clarification, please contact us directly.
When should I begin use?
You will want to begin use of the TempCue on cycle day 1 for the most accurate feedback on your cycle. We recommend that you select a time in the morning (one that is consistent) that you can set an alarm and taking your reading daily- prior to getting up and out of bed OR eating or drinking anything.
What is the accuracy rating of this sensor?
The TempCue is accurate to the 1/10th of a degree. Readings are taken and recorded to the 100th degree, and are charted to the 10th degree.
How fast does this take a reading?
It should take approximately one minute to take your TempCue BBT reading. To ensure the fastest and most accurate reading, you’ll want to make sure that you’re holding that sensor still in your mouth and you are not moving around while the reading is being taken.
Can you take readings in Celsius?
The TempCue readings will be taken in Fahrenheit only. If you want to have those readings converted and charted in Celsius, you will simply adjust your Chart Settings on your OvaGraph account.
How do I connect this to my iPhone that does not come with a headphone jack?
The iPhone 7 (and higher) comes with a headphone jack adapter. You’ll connect your TempCue mobile adapter to that headphone jack adapter that came with your phone to take your readings each day.
Does this plug into the OvaCue Fertility Monitor?
No it does not. The TempCue is the first basal body thermometer that connects directly to your iOS device to work in conjunction with the OvaGraph app. The BBT readings that you take are automatically interpreted via the OvaGraph app for you to display a possible ovulation day as well as a coverline.

Because I am using the OvaCue Fertility Monitor also, which reading should I take first – Oral Sensor or TempCue?
In general, it is suggested that you take your temperature reading first (as it is highly sensitive to any movement). However, the most important thing is to be consistent with the order in which you take your readings each day, and stick to that order to ensure consistency.
What is the difference between the TempCue and the OvaCue?
The TempCue tracks your Basal Body temperature to help pinpoint when ovulation occurred. Basal Body Temperature is a retroactive confirmation that ovulation has occurred. The OvaCue Fertility Monitor uses the electrolyte method to help to pinpoint ovulation. It gives you a predicted fertile window to help time intercourse correctly. It also can help to pinpoint your ovulation day! Both are great products and can be used in conjunction with each other. For more information about the OvaCue, please visit the product page.
How long after I’ve completely stopped birth control can I begin use?
You can begin use of the TempCue on cycle day 1 of your first non-medicated cycle.
Can I use this if my cycle is irregular?
Yes, you can! Because an irregular cycle can make it harder to accurately track your ovulation, we do recommend BBT charting to help you to close the fertile window and confirm ovulation.
Can I use this with other tracking tools?
Yes, we recommend the more tools you can use to pinpoint your fertile window the better. Because BBT is highly sensitive, we recommend that you take this reading first to help to ensure accuracy of your results.
