Have you read “Taking Charge of your Fertility?” If not I def. req. that book. We’re charting to avoid pregnancy, but I always know when I’m ovulating based on the signs my body gives me.

i charted and did that. i guess i just wanted to make sure that it all said the same thing. it took 2 months doing that for us to get preggo… but i miscarried very early in my pregnancy, so we’ll be starting that all up again pretty soon.

I used them. We got pregnant right away. My experience was very positive. We were also trying for a boy and therefore wanted to conceive as close to ovulation as possible, and that also worked in our favor. If you don’t mind spending the money on them, I would definitely recommend trying them.

I am about half way done with “Taking Charge of your Fertility”  and so far I would definately recommend that if you are trying to get pregnant or trying to avoid it.

I would recommend that you use an ovulation monitor that records all month long for you. Clear blue makes one that is recommended to use along with charting. You can find it on amazon (it is not cheap!)

@brittanymichelle: I have read that since male sperm are quicker swimmers than female sperm, if you want a boy to have sex as close to ovulation as possible so they get there faster.

We used the Clear Blue Fertility Monitor successfully but I combined it with charting temps.

@lisalulu: You should be taking your temp before you get out of bed. your temp peaks day of ovulation. If taking your temp is your only method then basically you miss ovulation bc you don’t realize it is a peak day until you take the next day’s temp….

@brittanymichelle: I researched The Shettles Method and followed the method for a boy. I am by no means advocating this as a surefire way to engineer the gender of a baby, but I was willing to try anything within reason to increase my chances of having a boy, and I just so happen to be having a boy. I paid attention to timing, diet, and position. Here’s a little info:

I am way too lazy for charting, so I never did that. But, bc Iwas trying for a boy and wanted to increase my chances of conceiving really close to ovulation, so I used the OPKs a couple of times a day around the time I knew I was ovulating. I actually got the smiley face two whole days later than I would have thought based on my cycle. But, the other thing is, I knew I was going to get the smiley face, bc I got a twingey little pain in my right side, so I tested shortly thereafter, and sure enough I got the smiley face. So, my body told me anyway.

Good Luck!!

I used the CBEFM along with charting/temping.  I got pregnant on my 3rd month, but interestingly, that month I never got a peak on my monitor.
