  • I would chart for a bit and then decide. Count from the first day of your last cycle to the first day of the new one. I would do it a couple months to be sure.

  • It can change each month. A good book to read "Taking Charge of your Fertility" It helps you get in tune with your body.

  • I've had trouble tracking mine (also not to good for it) I use an app on my phone to "help" and give me an idea on when I might ovulate. But other then that my husband and I just have fun every three days.
    Try not to stress about it, that can slow things down and I found in trying to track mine that it was stressing me out more. The once every three days (or every two or other) is fun and hopefully soon I'll be able to announce that I am pregnant.
    Good luck!!!

  • I'd get a few ovulation tests (next to pregnacy tests in drug stores) and chart for a few months because the miscarriage may wack your normal cycle out of wack for a little bit.
