Hi, ladies! I'm popping over from TTC w/PCOS and have a question for y'all.... Do you chart using FF? And if so, how accurate is FF in determining o compared to FAM? Do they line up, or do you find yourself doubting FF? Thanks in advance!

Fertility friend is really, really terrible at pinpointing O and we end up discussing that a lot here.

I agree.

FF can give you different O dates depending on what O detection mode you're using. It's really annoying.

Yeah, I am a newbie to charting and have been using the FAM method most of my life to predict o date and when AF should start (I have irregular cycles because of the PCOS). FF didn't mark an o date on my chart last cycle, but I'm almost convinced I did o... Just wanted to know other ladies' opinions concerning this issue!

Going by body signals is a bad way to determine o too. But yeah ff sucks. Try tcoyf, its more accurate and in depth.

FF is quite horrible with PCOS. I found TCOYF much better in accommodating PCOS as I can go by cervical fluid vs temp.

Thanks for the heads up, ladies! Is TCOYF free, or do I have to buy the book to gain access? I'm thinking about doing both FF and TCOYF at the same time just to compare them.

I think there is a charge, though I'm not sure since I don't use it, hopefully somebody who does can answer.

I thought the online version was free. I bought the pc version though and love it. I upload my updates each morning. Plus there are some features the pc versionhas theonline one doesn't like report printing.

I use the free version of TCOYF and I love it so much more than FF, which sucks big time.
