So I went out and bought a basal therm. and just wondering when I should start taking temps? i know on the chart I think I am suppost to start once my period starts but since I'm newly off of BC should I take my temps everyday since I don't know when my period will start? Also should I count any sign of blood as the start of my period?
THANKS!

Hi. After coming off BC I started temping right away, but It took a week or 2 for my first af to come. You could wait until your first sign of blood. its up to you.

your period will need to have steady flow, you could spot first. you need to play it by ear while your body kicks back into gear
