I am in the same boat. I tried to chart my BBT last month and watch for all the changes down there. I realized I have no clue what I'm doing. This month I plan picking up some OPKs, but I'm not even sure how to read them.

from what i can gather it works same as pregnancy test only that second line is testing for different hormone to pregnancy and gets darker in colour closer to ovulation you get ,i brought cheapy ones off ebay when i looked at ovulation test forum they seemed quite popular and theyre cheap

Hello, I'll be a buddy

I don't temp either, I wake far too much during the night so it wouldn't be accurate, I don't opk either we just BD from CD8 - 18 ish, every other day to cover ovulation period.

opk = ovulation predictor kit

CD = cycle day and the number is the day, for example i am on cycle day 15 today

hi hun, cycle thing loses me so i cant help with that but ovulation tests you ovulate tpyically 2weeks before your period so go from last months to give general idea its harder when your irregular i have that problem also as mine still arent completly right from implant .

workout date of first day of your last period and count back two weeks that day or close to it would be the day your ovulated, also way to tell your nearing ovualtion again different for everyone but as general thing is your cm,it can be a real big help in helping pin point it .

cm before o its dry and thick lotion like ,white and not transparent this is your least fertile period as its harder for the sperm to get through

cm closer to o , it can be wet and stretchy,colour tends to be creamy white or yellow and you can see through it as it will be transparent in some way, not best time to try and concieve still falls into not very fertile period

cm few days before o ,there increase in amount ,its described as egg white this is second best fertile period ,it will stretch easy and be slippery and transparent

cm during the o this is time your most fertile again theres increase in amount its described as above with the few days before the o

you also might notice ,cramping on one side,tender breasts also signs of o

o= ovulation
cm= cervical mucus
