There are cur­r­ently 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).
