I thought I would come introduce myself!
I'm Mini (20), DB is Ry (23). We are currently NTNP.

I've charted before, but mainly only to keep track of my periods. I just started using fertility friend, day before yesterday actually!

This is my fertile week so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

If not I plan on using the methods of checking temp, CP, CM and all that to decide when we DTD. Which at this point in time is like 3 times a day!

I hope you ladies won't mind if I pick your brains some and ask tons of questions!

Welcome and there's no such thing as too many questions.

Thanks!
Ok so when you temp, is it best to use a normal oral thermometer? I've seen ones at the drug store that say they are used to help conceive. Should I get one of those?

You need a Basal thermometer, not a regular fever thermometer. The ones that say they are for helping with conception sound like the right ones! Basal thermometers are usually in the family planning section of the drug store with all the pregnancy tests and stuff.

Ok, well if this is not my cycle, I will definintly get one and try and get the temping thing down! Very difficult when I work over nights and sleep at all different hours.

Don't feel like you have to temp if it's a hassle. That only confirms ovulation after it happens anyway. You can learn to track your fertility with cervical mucus only, and it's just as reliable for confirming ovulation. No temps to worry about! That's what we do, with the Billings Ovulation Method.

Does your temp stay above baseline after you've ovulated? What about when your actually pregnant?

After ovulation, your temp rises and stays high until you get your period or a positive pregnancy test. Sometimes the temp goes a little higher about a week after ovulation if you are pregnant, but that can happen when you're not pregnant too.
