Temping?

DH and I have decided to try for another baby now that we have our finances and insurance in order.  We have been working up for this and throught the last few months I have been tracking my cycles, with the exception of temperatures.  However, the more I read into it the more it seems that that is an important part of the process.  So my question is would it do me any good to start taking my temps tomorrow even though I am on CD 11 and website say that I should ovulate on CD 15-16.  Will it do me any good?  or should I just wait until next month and start when/if I get AF?  Thanks in advance.

I would recommend waiting til next cycle. If you go to a website and all it asks for is cycle length, then your normal ovulation time could be very different. Most websites assume a 14 day luteal phase (time from ovulation til next cycle), but it could be only 10 or up to 16 days long!
Good luck!

I agree. Wait until the next cycle and start temping on CD1.  Good luck!

You can still take the ovulation predictor test this month starting today. Good luck!
