Hey ladies!

I'm Amee (20), DB is Ryan (23). We are WTTC until further notice.
The main reason I am here is because the use of condoms is getting old, and (sry tmi) causing me issues. I can't be on birth control due to being diagnosed with pulmonary emboli in February of this year (caused by my birth control).

I thought I would introduce myself.

Moving on....

Ok so I've been poorly charting on FF. My temps are all over the place and some imput would be great!



Now mind you, I said poorly charting so please don't yell at me! I'm still trying to get in the hang of this stuff and get into it full gear. Difficult when I work night shift!

Also, still no AF.

Are you taking it at the same time every morning, before getting out of bed? And with a 2 hour block of sleep before? That could be the reason for the open circles a few days before it said you ovulated. I don't think that's enough days before O to determine your coverline. And, FF isn't designed to TTA, you might want to look into something else. I used Ovusoft and loved it!

Welcome!!!!

I would highly recommend a class or course designed to teach you to TTA with charting (FF is designed to teach you to TTC). Having the personalized support of a teacher is the fastest and easiest way out of the confusion you're experiencing right now. She can walk you through the process step by step so you can ditch the condoms and still avoid pregnancy effectively.

Do take a moment to read through the FAQ and Resources Stickies. That might help clear up some of the confusion too!

I'm using BOM and have only been charting for 5 days but having the instructor email me every day and answer all my questions AND tell me what the heck my chart means has already made me feel sooo much more confident in everything! Definitely get a personalized instructor!

My temps are all over the place too, I don't 100% take them at the same time is part of why though. I use mucus and I just kinda confirm ovulation with my temp, well I always have in the past, they've been so all over the place Idk if I think I'll be able to tell anything, yours look better than mine, mine are that bad!!! lol

Welcome to the board!

Are you still using condoms? I ask because you are BDing in your fertile times from what I saw. I have had issues with condoms too - I am allergic to some latex as well as the spermicide.

I TTA with BOM (no temps). It made it easier on a difficult schedule.

Welcome and good luck!

We decided we are NTNP... so no, no condoms. Plus I had a really bad allergic reaction to them!

We both hate condoms too. They just don't feel as good (honestly) and are annoying. Kind of a buzzkill when things get hot and heavy, and you have to pause to roll a rubber tube onto his...ha ha ha ha. So we are NTNP still since we are waiting for my period to hit. But i guess it's NTNP in one way, for the fact that my doc already said I can't get pregnant without Clomid. So I either have to wish for a miracle, or just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Thank you!

So I went to see my OB today and he urged me to quit charting because its going to end up stressing myself out. He was like you're supposed to have fun with this and not stress!

So I think I'm going to take a break for awhile.
He says he is going to give me 4-6 months to get pregnant and if no luck he is going to start me on fertilty drugs or see a fertility specialist. 6 months we will have been trying for 10 months...
