    Just because you are charting does not mean you are going to get pregnant right away.  We charted and used OPKs and it still took us 10 months.  Charting does give you a look at your body to identify any issues, an increased chance of getting pregnant for timing, etc.  Remember, it takes a few months of charting to even get a good feel for what your body is doing before it can realiably give you projections.  I found it incredibly helpful to chart if only for peace of mind.  I knew what my body was doing.  That may or may not be something that you need.

    I chart to avoid pregnancy, but the method is the same as charting to achieve. Charting will let you know whether (and when) you are ovulating, so you can take advantage of the moment when it comes, or get help from a doctor if it’s not coming. It takes about three months to get the hang of it. Best case, you’re pregnant by then, and if you’re not, you’ll have data to help you along.

    @missbbc: It just took awhile for me just because; no abnormalities or anything.  I liked the reassurance that my body was doing the right thing that charting showed me.  I think it just took awhile for me more due to genetics (no medical basis here, just personal opinion).  I say that because my mom took a year to conceive my older sister, my sister took a year to conceive each of her two children and I seem to have fallen in line with that same timeline.  Neither my mom nor sister ever charted but I’m glad I did.

    I just started charting in September due to a thread I read. I’m still trying to figure it all out because I haven’t read enough about it. Hopefully, it’ll make it happen quickly.
