Okay, I have a basal body temperature from my last ttc efforts so I have been thinking if things don't work this month I will start charting. I chart the first day of AF and Oing, but I haven't been doing my temps yet. I am thinking if AF shows I will use Fertility Friend. What is your oppinion of it? Is it easy to use? Does it really help you know when you will O or just when it has happened? As of now my body has stayed on the same O cycle for months so I am not sure if I am still on the same schedule. Dh works a lot and is in school and with DD we don't get many bding chances these days. Just so busy, so it is a big deal for me to know when I O. Anway, if anyone can help I would appreciate it.
Married 7 years to my wonderful Dh
hi just wanted to respond and let cha know that i started using fertility friend this cycle and i love it. it's nice to see your chart, instead of trying to figure it out yourself. i haven't o'd yet, but looking forward to it. good luck!!!
FF is a great site, lots of info and it's way better than charting on paper. I also use Ovusoft, I feel it gives me more information, and I like the format better. I have been using Ovusoft for 5 months, and rely more on its forecasting than FF's (FF has moved O dates on me which I find confusing). FF is free and Ovusoft is ~$40. I started using FF after joining JM so that I can provide a link to my chart for others to see when I need advice.

Temping will tell you when you HAVE o'd... but you cant really tell when youre GOING to O. You CAN tell when youre about to O by your cervical fluid though, and you should note that on your chart as well
I like fertility friend, but i too prefer Ovusoft For basically the same reasons, plus for some reason the chart looks nicer.
