Hi again ladies!

So I'd like to get the hang of charting before me and DH are ready to start trying. I'm on Mirena right now, and I plan to get it removed at the end of May.

Can I start charting now, just to get the hang of it? I don't really get a period, though -- sometimes only once every 2 or 3 months. I've read that's it not reliable and your temps could be wonky.

Is it dumb to do if there's a chance my cycle could change once the Mirena is removed? Also, does anyone know how exercise affects charting?

Thanks for your thoughts!

You can't chart while on hormonal birth control. When you are on hormonal birth control, it prevents ovulation and the natural rhythms of your reproductive hormone system.
You could chart just to get in the habit of taking your temp, but your charts are not going to produce any useful information, unfortunately.

Exercise should not effect charting at all.
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!
