I think I've got it now, so I've set it up as CD5. I hope I did that right?? Reading mixed reviews about what to call each day. My 1st 3 days of this cycle were just brown blood, but I wouldn't call it spotting there was a good amount of it and yesterday full red af arrive. Some people say that you don't count your period until the day you see red blood?? But while on my IUD I never had red blood, so does that mean I didn't get my period? When I did get some light brown blood always when AF was suppose to arrive and for 5 days or so....I am confused is today CD2 or CD5???? Maybe it wont even matter? But if I change it FF and the monitor will be off...ahhh I don't know!!
Hi There!

Thats a tough question! I never really was good at counting my cycle, but I was told that the first day of full red menstration is considered Cycle Day 1. If you never have had red, then maybe that's just your cycle? Im not really sure. I am sure it will give you your high/peak readings at some point, and maybe work backwards from there and see what day you are supposed to Ovulate. Do you chart at all? perhaps that can act as a backup!

Yes I started charting for the 1st time last month, so fairly new to it...I think I'm going to leave it at CD5, I guess it doesn't really matter as long as I see a peak, and I will, even if I have to use 3 extra sticks

does anyone know what happens if you have not ovulated after using all 20 sticks?, does it ask you to keep testing or is that it for the month?

OK so I got my first high reading today on Day 11! WOOHOO! I have a question for you ladies though:

We BD on CD8 and CD10 (trying to sort of follow SMEP with the CBFM) and I got a high reading with FMU this AM. Should I skip today or BD each day with high reading? I get nervous because people say that if you BD everyday the sperm count isnt good or whatever?
If I follow SMEP correctly, it states to BD the day you get a high reading for 3 days in a row.

gotcha! Does the sperm count decrease if you do BD 3 days in a row like SMEP says?

PS - HAPPY FRIDAY!!!
