This is more so a thing with TCOYF and I am curious why it does this, I know there must be FAM rules behind it right?

If you take your temp over 1 hr before normal, it wont ask for an auto adjust and will just discard the temp. I am curious, should you discard a temp taken over 1 hour prior to normal. I had another 3:30am night my normal temp time is 5:15am. 1 hour and 45 min early. My temp was 97.8, and out of curiosity I used a BBT adjuster and it adjusted it to 98.1, which drops it above my CL. Should I use either of them or just discard it?

What I noticed with TCOYF is that if the time is an hour and a half earlier or later than normal, they won't adjust it. Someone on the boards suggested to discard, but I just left them since I didn't want all those X's on my chart . That being said, I did notice that on the days my temp was taken way out of range (like a 2+ hour difference) they couldn't be trusted. I normally temp at 9a.m., but when I charted at 6:30 a few days, those temps were higher than what I expected since I woke up earlier.

sorry I dont use TCOYF I might when I start to TTC again but I always just entered the time (never adjusted the temp on my own) and FF would give me an open circle
