I'm just wondering if there is a time of day that is best to check CP??? When I have been using NFP in the past, I would make sure to check it at the same time each day, but never actually found out if there was a specific time of the day that's best to check???

It's important to pay attention to what you feel as you go about your activities all day long (do you feel a wetness, do you feel nothing, do you feel sticky, or slippery, or whatever?) and then also take note of anything you happen to see on the toilet paper every time you go to the bathroom. After the whole day of doing that, chart only the most fertile observation you had during the day, even if it was only once.

Sounds like good advice to me!

OH big fat WOOOPS! I thought you were asking when to check CM, not CP! Sorry!

Cervical position is the least reliable sign of fertility and the method I teach (Billings) discourages women from checking CP as it can disrupt the accuracy of the mucus observations. However, if you choose to do it - do so at the very end of the day, after you have decided what your most fertile mucus of the day was. Then, when you check the position of your cervix ignore any mucus that you find there, pay attention only to the position and firmness of the cervix. The position of the cervix can fluctuate a lot during one day because of gravity and bowel movements and such, so checking more than once per day can make it really confusing.
