@runningcali:  charting while on BC is useless because the BC is controlling your hormones. you can start temping now if you just want to get in the habit of doing it but it won’t produce reliable results.

@runningcali:  Charting on BC won’t help because your temps are impacted by your hormones (progesterone spike after ovulation is what causes your temperature to go up, and is what maintains higher temps if you get pregnant).  If you’re on hormonal birth control, it will be a waste of your time until you get off.

I’m going off the pill at the start of July, and will start charting right after.

Good luck!
