There are 3 names in this directory beginning with the letter B.
Basal body temperature
Body temperature measured in the morning immediately after waking up and before getting up. The basal body temperature changes during the menstrual cycle. Shortly after ovulation, it rises by a few tenths of a degree for at least three days in a row. This way ovulation and fertile days can be determined retrospectively. In this way, the following infertile days can be determined as well. Measuring the basal body temperature is part of the temperature method for natural contraception.

Billings method
A method of natural contraception that observes the change in the composition of cervical mucus during the menstrual cycle. Shortly before and around ovulation the consistency of the mucus changes, which allows the fertile days of the cycle to be determined.

Binary gender system
Assumption that there are only two sexes (male or female).
