  • I gave up on charting and used an online fertility calender. If you still want to chart, set your alarm because it needs to be the same time everyday.

  • You CAN chart your cervical position. Can't hurt.

    When I was still charting, I made it a point to be awake first. **smile**

  • I chart- take temp same time everyday- 15 min off doesn't usually matter. Half hour does make a difference. Should also chart cervical mucous but not until after 11 or 12 because that's when it changes over for the day. I use CyclePro program form Couple to Couple League. Really takes guess work out but you also have to know background behind the charting and what the codes mean and which phase is what so you know when it's more beneficial to have sex every other day.
