Fertility Friend will guess your ovulation date by your temperature but that doesn’t mean that it’s correct. This thread has a chart to help explain CM which I thought was super helpful. Temping is great but CM is one of the better ways to figure out your O date. Good luck!

i don’t chart my CM and FF calculates my O date just fine. i do use OPK’s but even without the OPK’s, it would still give me an accurate O date based on my temps. i have a pretty easy to read chart though (so far) where it’s really obvious when my temps rise because of O. just note that when FF calculates your O date, then O already occurred. if you want to know when you’re about to O, it’s best to either use OPK’s or checking CM (or both).

Slippery and clear, but not stretchy is still considered egg white. I have been charting for 8 months and only once had a 1/2 inch stretch. Be patient with yourself, it takes a while to really feel comfortable with it. I got comfortable with it by doing it in steps, first just temping and checking for my paraguard strings, then checking cervix placement and texture, then really looking at my CM, now I’m starting to use OKPs and not having a lot of luck with them. Have you read “Taking Control of Your Fertility”? It has helped a lot of women (including me) get a start on charting.

Here is another posting that goes over some of the basics of TTC, including links to charting information: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/what-to-expect-ttc#axzz2OxFqIPVO

Don’t ever hesitate to come on and ask questions. I know I would be insane if I had to depend on Dr. Google for all of my information on TTC. And the women on here are so smart and willing to share their knowledge.

I never got the hang of checking CM so I only did temping and FF worked just fine for me.
