You may want to consider charting. Hop on over to the charting board or take the tutorial over at Fertilityfriend.com

When you take your temp, pay attention to cervical mucus, etc, you will be able to determine if and when you ovulate. Eventually as you get to know your body more, you might notice other signs that you get that maybe you didn't pay attention to before that will help you pinpoint when you're ovulating.

Charting will help you get to know your body better, determine when you should be DTD, when you're ovulating, etc.

Charting is the best way to get to know your body. I used to check my fertility signs and take my temp in the morning, but now I just check the signs. I'm able to pinpoint a day before I ovulate, and I'm never off.

I normally check at night, and a cervix that cannot be easily reached is high. Not easy or hard is medium. Immediately found because it's so low you think it will fall our of your vagina is low.

For the opening, if you can get a fingertip into it, that is open. If if feels slightly open but not big enough for your finger, that's medium. Closed is closed.

They say firm is like your nose, soft is your lips.

Next you check your mucus. You can do so by looking at the tp after you clean up, or you can insert two clean fingers and pull some off the cervix. Mucus is dry, sticky, creamy, watery, and egg white. Dry is obviously dry and absent. Sticky is all clumpy. Creamy looks like lotion. Watery is just wet. Egg white is like the whites of eggs. The most fertile is egg white, but I conceived my last with creamy/egg white.

So anyway, aim for high, soft, and open with egg white mucus.

If you temp, you do it when you first wake up before you even get out of bed. You can do it orally or vaginally. All you need is a digital thermometer with tenth of degrees. I'm pretty sure that's all thermometers.

Charting can be fun, but temping makes me a wreck. It delays ovulation because I obsess. So I just stick with fertility signs. I do miss the look of the temp chart sometimes.
