Predicting ovulation is an important factor for using NFP or FAM effectively. Fact or fiction?


Predicting ovulation is used for the Rhythm or Calender Method, but it's not very reliable because every cycle is different - ovulation can occur later or earlier than it's supposed to. NFP and FAM do not use predictions, but rather teach women to track and evaluate their fertility as it happens, day by day.

I guess that I will take a stab at this I think that it is Fiction because you don't really predict ovulation you just look to see a fertile pattern and then you confirm ovulation after the fact. I think that is what it is.

See, I would have got it wrong, but not because I didn't know the answer, because I read it differently than you meant it. To me, it read prediction as in you know when you are currently in THAT cycle and you are predicting, "I'm going to ovulate tomorrow" not prediction like two weeks ago you predicted you'd ovulate today, kwim?

But how can you predict that you'll ovulate tomorrow? You can tell by your signs of fertility that you are potentially fertile or infertile on any given day, and you can presume that ovulation could happen very soon - maybe tomorrow, but maybe not. Ovulation can only be confirmed the day after it happens.
