Crosshairs this morning but Iím unsure weather to believe them...I always have this struggle when I get crosshairs because Iím not used to ovulating. Because the opks are a bit off it makes me more unsure. And I donít know weather to start progesterone cream or not.

The app goes mostly by your temps, so I wouldn't worry about the OPKs so much. It works by detecting consistently higher temps for three days, higher than the previous six, which makes sense on your chart so I would try to relax and trust the app is right. It usually is

I was wondering about the progesterone cream. Iíve seen online you can apply to your face, neck, upper chest, breasts, inner arms, palms and feet. But then there are other sites that say inner thighs and lower back too.
I was wondering about the inner arms, palms and feet I find that one pump is quite a lot can you put it on both feet, both palms and both arms? I felt like last time there was a lot of excess after rubbing in and I couldnít get it to rub in anymore if that makes sense.

Yeah I had the same with the cream too, it seems like a little but it goes a LONG way! Anywhere the skin is thin and you can see clear veins blood vessels etc. is good to whack it on. Always alternate areas though otherwise it will become saturated and won't be effective. I think it's ok to distribute it evenly on both palms or feet, but with larger areas stick to that area, and just keep rubbing it in. You can use it on your face too but I found it irritated my eyes. I didn't put it close to my eyes but it still irritated them

I agree, your chart it looking really good! Cheeks and neck are good in the facial area. I used to do chest & boobs, inner arms and wrists (lower and upper inner arms), inside thighs, feet and hands, neck and face but didn't do face much because of my eyes. Try not to wash your hands for at least an hour afterwards

I havenít been washing my hands after for at least a hour anyways. Iíve just applied it to my lower inner arms.

So if I do
Yesterday chest & feet
Today lower inner arms & cheeks and neck
Tomorrow upper inner arms & inner thighs
Then chest and feet again and carry in that order will that be ok?

Based on my 9-10day lp iíll expecting af in 5-6 days. I think this cycle I will only test if I go past a 10 day lp.

Yeah that should be fine. Is this your first cycle using the cream? I can't remember

No I used it last cycle but not until 5dpo because I hadnít been charting when I had ovulation pain I started temping the next day and my temps kept rising and were higher than my usual post ovulation temps so I decided to take the chance with the progesterone cream, but it didnít make a difference to my lp it was still 10days. But Iím hoping starting it on 3dpo this time along with the Vitex I will have better results this time.

I have quite a bit of cramping today especially when I have to pee. This is common for me between 3-5dpo. I always feel like Iíve got a uti after ovulation.
