We are finally actively TTC and I found an app called My Days. It tracks your period and determines O day. Now, it is 4 days off from what other calculators like Web MD say but at the same time my CM feels like it is nearly spot on… anybody tried it?

I’ve been using it for a year now.. although i’ve only used it to track my periods. woman usually ovulate on the 14th day. http://www.pregnology.com is a great website.

@Mrs Hedgehog: Hi! I used an app like that pre-TTC. Once I started TTC I got the clear blue easy fertility monitor which basically told me the high and peak fertility days. I would highly recommend it. What it showed me was that I was ovulating on completely different days, which often calendar apps like that simply can’t pick up. Every woman is different, and so is every month (or at least it was in my case!).
It all depends on how actively you want to TTC.
Best of luck!

@Mrs Hedgehog: it can only take a guess based on the info you put in and what happens for other people. it will have NO luck if you have an irregular cycle, or a shorter or longer luteal phase than the average. you may get lucky and fit the pattern, or it might be off. honestly, i’d put more faith in a consistent EOD schedule than an app, but that’s just me.

I used the app and it was successful for us, but I do have a normal cycle.

@Mrs Hedgehog: I’ve used My Days for about a year now and I really like it for tracking my cycles and seeing my cycle history. It adjusts over time and gets to know your cycle. Example, my cycle in My Days started at 28 days but after two or three months it noticed my cycles are 30 days and adjusted. As far as TTC I’m not sure how it works, as we just started trying this last cycle (10 dpo and bfn this AM…boo) but we are taking a laid back approach the first few months. I like that my days gives me my fertile week and like you I noticed my fertile days in MD matched up with my CM, so for now it works. However if we aren’t successful for a few months we will up our chances with OPKs and maybe temping/charting.

Before TTC, I used MyDays to keep track of my periods so whenever I went to the doctor, etc. I would be able to whip it right up on my phone to say when my last period started. However, now that we are trying to conceive, I am DEFINITELY not using it. It tries to stick your fertile days right in the middle of your cycle, however long they are. This is great if this is when you actually ovulate, but for a lot of women, it is not. I thought since my cycles were pretty regular (28ish days) I was probably a 14-day ovulater too! After using fertility friend, temping, and keeping track of cervical fluid, I actually ovulated last cycle (and looking like this cycle too) on the 17th day of my cycle.
I definitely recommend fertility friend, even if you are not going to track your temps, even if you just pay attention to your cervical fluid, that’s better than nothing. OR you could try the sperm meets egg plan…google it 🙂
Good luck! 🙂

I used this app; got a BFP 2 weeks after going off BCP. I’m now 22w2d. But I think the accuracy of the app solely depends on how regular your periods and ovulation are.

i used to use an app like that one for tracking my period, but it doesn’t help much for TTC because i don’t ovulate on the 14th day.
my favorite phone app for TTC is called OvuView. I used that and FertilityFriend together. FF is the most detailed, accurate, and informative… but OvuView is more phone friendly.

@cowgirlace: +1. Another vote for FF here.

I used the My Days app for about a year prior to TTC. So, even though my cycles are irregular, it adjusted to know my ovulation date. Once we started trying, I got pregnany on my second cycle! It was pretty accurate for me.

I’m not TTC, but I use an app called Ovuview that I really like.
