Sorry that you are in the unlucky club of those with amenorrhea. I did chart mostly for the purposes of aharing with my dcotor to get some other options going. I ended up needing some help (iui with clomid, met andnovidrel) to get pregnant and found that I was able to start with clomid pre 12 months because of the charting proof. Do you known if you have pcos?

I am a CD140+ gal over here and no I do not chart.  I joined FF and attempted to use it but it was pretty useless without a period to base it on.

I have a doctors appointment in a few hours and hopefully I will have an answer to my amenorrhea soon.

@sara79:  we aren’t even trying to TTC yet but bc I chart I know I haven’t had a period or ovulated in 81 days, I was able to go to my dr and he did bloodwork yesterday and I have a sonogram app on Sunday to check my ovaries. If I wasn’t chrating I would not have had anything to show to my dr. Our official TTC date is March 1st but if I’m not ovulating it’s kinda pointless to start BD and go for a year  before getting help. I think charting just gives more info.

@Sara79:  I know exactly what you mean!  I’m in this unfortunate “club” as well and have been forcing myself to chart, I guess just to keep track of what’s going on.  There are days where I’m just like “F*** it!” and even write that on my charts.  Haha.  But at least I can show my doctor the info, and that I have no visible temperature shift either.  Feel ya though on how frustrating charting is when it seems “pointless.”
