Is anyone else using Fertility Friend? I started about a month ago because I saw so many people here used it. It’s convenient. Realistically, if I were dedicated to a paper chart, I could do it all myself, but it’s nice to have an automatic generator to shift things around (“You ovulated a day later than usual, we’ve now shifted your entire ‘best conception dates’ accordingly).
What other charting sites have you found? Any free ones? What are your favorites and why?

The only one that I’ve used is the FF app. It’s pretty good because it does everything for you and I’m sure if I did it on paper I would somehow mess it up, lol.
I haven’t tried any other sites though. I kind of suck at remembering to take my temp so I haven’t researched it any further.

We do it the old-fashioned way, on paper, and I actually really love it because it’s gotten DH involved. He notes down the temp on the chart each morning, and I track the other symptoms. He’s gotten pretty good at reading the charts, too. I love that it’s not just “my thing,” it’s “our thing.”

I love Fertility Friend! If you “like” them on facebook, they run VIP specials pretty often and you can get a year for $25.

I think FF is definitely the most popular on here. It’s a lot more sophisticated than a lot of other sites & the VIP is definitely worth it.

I’m not really interested in going much further as far as charting goes – I just started trying. I generally go on Ebay and buy OPKs by the bucketload for cheap (I can get 50 or so tests for just over $5, including S&H, usually. They’re usually what they use in health clinics like PP). My cycles and ovulation so far seem pretty predictable and boring.
Eventually, I might get more in-depth with tracking cervical mucus, temperatures, etc., but I’m not too concerned yet.
But, I’ll definitely look around at the charters thread.
I always had it in my head that ‘charting’ just involved temperatures, CM, etc. – I guess that’s actually pretty stupid.

FF is definitely the more preferred charting site of choice. As PP said “Like” them on FFB and ge the discount. I think it was so worth it for me. Once I got a handle on charting and learned my body, I go my BFP the very next cycle. :o)
ETA: DEFINTELY join the charter’s thread. Those ladies are GREAT!
