    Hi Hun I'm very new to this I only started temping this cycle. All I do is take my temp each morning at the same time. And log it on the fertility friend app on my iPad. X

    Take your temp every morning before you get up, try not to do anything between waking and taking your temp. Vaginally is more accurate I think but you can take it orally. Input into a chart like fertility friend or ovufriend. You need to have had at least 3 hours of continuous sleep for it to be accurate. If you take your temp at a different time then still put your temp in your chart, as it will account of different times, but try and do the same time every day.

    You should also use a bbt thermometer and not just a standard one. It's more precise so you will notice the shift more

    And setting alarm at the same time every day really works :)

    Thank you SO much! :hugs: So, when can I expect my O to appear in relation to my temp? Does my temp take a Dip or rise??

    You won't know O until after. It will rise and stay high usually the day after. Sometimes but not always, you will get a dip on O day. Expect it to go up and down each day and after O you will see a higher range of temps
