FAM charts your BBT, cervical position and cervical fluid (CF). Right before you ovulate, you will see a slight dip in temps. The next day post ovulation, usually you'll see an increase in temps. If you have three in a row above your coverline then it indicates you have ovulated. Cervical fluid also changes throughout your cycle. In the beginning, the fluid is either non existent or very tacky like paste, it progresses to creamy (indicating your fertile phase is coming) and them to egg white consistency. If you are trying to conceive, it is a good idea to start having relations when the creamy CF appears. Definitely do have sex when it is an egg white consistency.
Cervical position is also a tell tale sign. At the beginning of your cycle, your cervix is firm, low and closed. As you approach ovulation, your cervix moves up further into your body. When you ovulate, your cervix will be Soft, High Open and wet. Good luck2u
