Which do you think is better? I've only been tempting orally but thought about switching to vaginally. Is there something you clean your thermometer with?

I've only done it orally, but I think I've heard vaginally can be more accurate.

If you notice a very bouncy temp pattern, it can mean you're probably sleeping with your mouth open at times - which affects your oral temperature. Vaginal temps are less bouncy. Your charts don't look bouncy or difficult to interpret though, so it's simply a matter of personal preference.
