I was reading online that you can take your temp either orally or vaginally and chart that way, that it really doesnt make a difference as long as you test at the same time every day, but do you recommend one over the other? I also read to use a basal body thermometer, but I only have a cheap fever thermometer... Should I invest in a basal therm?

Personally, I would find orally much easier than vaginally.  I've only used the oral method and with a cheap ol fever thermometer.  As long as you take it at around the same time every day, you will get a clear enough reading.

Agreed. I only ever temped orally. Although I did invest in a Basel thermometer .... Found it right by the others at the store and it wasn't a huge price difference.
