Honestly, sleep affects people differently in terms of their temp, and you won’t really know yourself until you try. But if you are serious about TTA, then you might want to investigate another method that doesn’t rely on temps at all. For example, there is the Marquette method that involves a monitor that keeps track of your hormonal changes (I think?) http://nfp.marquette.edu/ and I think you have the option to just use the monitor, or use it in combination with mucus and/or temps, or you might also be interested in the Billings method which is mucus-only. http://www.learnnfponline.com/instructor-finder/ Or Creighton is also mucus-only, but my impression is it’s the most expensive to learn.

@future_mrs_s:  i’m a horrible sleeper and it doesn’t effect my temps at all. i still see a very clear pattern of when i O. just see what happens the first few cycles and of course use a back up method like condoms until you see that you definitely O’d. after awhile, you’ll see a pattern and know when to avoid having sex (or instead of avoiding, know when to use condoms). here’s my chart for reference. my temps are wonky this cycle because of a medication i’m temporarily on.

i don’t recommend going by mucus only. i know a lot of women get EWCM even after they O. i’ve gotten it after. if you do mucus and no temp, then you’ll need to learn how to check your cervix placement. that along with mucus is pretty accurate.
