I’m curious how many bees are using charting to avoid/create a pregnancy. Personally, we’re using it to avoid. I just started, after being on the pill for 11 years. Yes- 11. I’m 23, and not really wanting to get pregnant now. If we did it wouldn’t be the end of the world but we’re certainly not trying. Are you using an online charting tool? I heard there are cool apps for it, but I don’t have an iPhone. Please help me out in finding a great place to do this!

I have been charting for the last year and I’m also TTA right now.
I like using the TCOYF website for online tracking although I paper chart too.
Others have recommended fertilityfriend.com also as an easy free way to chart online.

I signed up for fertility friend and TCOYF online. Haven’t decided which I’m going to use. I’d be interested to see some non-biased studies on the effectiveness rate of NFP/FAM. We’re still doing it, but I’d just like to see some info cause I’m a geek like that.

The Marquette Method has lots of scientific data. I also found most of the peer reveied Jurnals in Europe to be helpfull. Since the US does not consider this to be a for of BC. (theres no money to be made in understanding your body)
I also have some questions.
I am also preparing for my wedding of June 16, 2012 by charting using Temps, Cervical fluid, and the Marquette Method with the Clearblue Fertility Monitor http://nfp.marquette.edu/ . I have read the Taking Charge of Your Fertility Book and the Marquette Method instruction book. I also am paper charting and using the iPhone app Lily to see what I like the best. I am interested in knowing if anyone has used these methods and would love to hear your experience.
I love Jesus and I am also a scientist so I believe that life starts at conception so NFP is the only BC for me.
I am using a Basel Therm. and my temps are crazy. I can’t make since of that part of my chart. I however understand the cervical fluid and Marquette Method. I am thinking of buying the LadyComp ( http://www.lady-comp.com/en/ ) just don’t know if its worth the price. Does anyone have experience using any of these methods? Please share your story.
If you have used iPhone app Lily, the Marquette Method with the Clearblue Fertility Monitor, or ladycomp please commit below with your experience.
