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).
