by no means do you have to keep track of the extras, but it helps. Your cervix changes position through the course of your cycle - but also through the day, so if you're going to check it, do it at the same time every day, in the same position. If you don't happen to know what your cervix feels like, it's a knobby thing at the end of your vagina. It will be HIGH up, may be hard to feel, FIRM, and CLOSED when you are not fertile. When you are, it will be LOW and easy to feel, SOFT, and will feel slightly OPEN. Some people aren't comfortable with feeling their cervix, and some people just aren't able to.
FertilityFriend offers a free course that will help you with all this. Have sex (BD - babydance) every other day until you see EWCM, then have sex every day until your chart shows that you have ovulated. (temp dip followed by big temp spike.) Most fertile days are the three before and one after. Good luck!
