You can start temping immediately. Set up a free profile on www.fertilityfriend.com to chart your temps, CM, OPK's and learn the basics of charting on the website. I prefer to leave the interpretation to FF as you get solid red coloured cross hairs 3days after you ovulated on the day of Ovulation.

Note that temping will let you confirm that you've ovulated and by then its too late to catch the Egg. OPK will let you know that you'll O in a few days. Good Luck.

I'll suggest vaginal temping as it gives more steady temps that are not affected by breathing through the mouth. It could be gross to some women but well I temp vaginally even with AF. I clean up with a damp cloth and soap after each temping.

BBT. The same one you use for oral temping. And your question isn't stupid, we're all here to learn and support each other. *hugs*
