Ok, I chart on FF and TCOYF. My TCOYF calendar is confusing the crap out of me. How can I go from high fertility to low fertility back to high fertility. Has anyone else ever had this happen on TCOYF?

I can't see your tcoyf chart. However, i do have that software, and it changes it's mind all the time.. i have yet to figure out HOW or WHY it does, but it does.

Sorry my link did not work. Can't figure that one out. lol Today when I entered my temp things went back to normal. I know that charting on 2 different sites may seem like a bit much, but there are certain things I really like about each. I really like the calendar on tcoyf, and I really like the chart on FF. I will keep doing both, but I rely on FF more.

I totally agree with Carrie! Last cycle I used both and it just confused me more!

I personally like FF better.

~Special thanks to *Kiliki* for my adorable siggy~

Every time CM is present, you are fertile. When it disappears, you enter infertility again. When it re-appears, you become fertile again. That may explain the changing fertility status.

Charting with both FF and TCOYF will likely be confusing. TCOYF is based on actual science and has fewer interpretation errors. As you can see, it also has a much more comprehensive list of CM descriptions to choose from. FF doesn't even include the most important part of observing CM, the vaginal sensation option! FF's calculations come from I don't know where and it will often tell you ovulation has occurred when it actually hasn't yet.
