Ok, I have been tracking the length of my cycles sice Stella was born. I chart, but my temps are all over the place and I do not find them reliable at all. I mostly pinpoint ovulation by using OPKs.
Anyway..... I was trying to find out the average length of my cycle and possible dates of conception and I was wondering, how far back should I go to get the average? If I average all of the months I have recorded it comes out to over 34 days per cycle, but more recently my cycles have been shorter.
If they are all over the place, then go back a year, however, if you have had pretty regular cycles for the last few months, I would just use that average. Either way, if you're using OPKs, you'll want to start testing by your shortest cycle, just in case.

Ditto what the other ladies said. Also, do you use Fertility Friend? I love that site for my charting.
Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.
