Hi,

Thanks

Sign up to fertility friend, I've just started temping this month and it's been really usefull to me, showed me I defo ovulated this month! You can also get tutorials that talk you through it all step by step and I have learnt loads from them! Made me realise how little I know about being a girl!

Also, don't forget you need a basal thermometer, not a regular one. You can get one pretty cheap online or at your local pharmacy.

Fertility Friend is awesome! I have been using it on and off for about 5 years and even I forget things. They have a ton of info! Good Luck!

The idea is that every month, your body will release a hormone AFTER you ovulate that raises your temperature. Your temperature should be lower from the time of your AF until approximately the day AFTER you ovulate. Once you have had three temperatures higher than the previous six (preferably by about 0.4 degrees), you can be confident you ovulated. Normally, you want to pair that will observing your cervical mucus (CM), and if the temperature shift comes around the same time that you have had eggwhite CM or watery CM, you can be virtually positive about ovulation. You can further verify it by getting your period 14 days later... mine hasn't come this month... still waiting for that BFP...

You have to take your temp at the same time every morning, before you've done anything else that day - preferably even before you talk - so that the thermometer will read your natural, resting temperature.

Here is an example of a chart (mine) from this month. As you can see, once I plugged my temps into FertilityFriend, it predicted that I ovulated on CD32. http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/30d545
