@Chicpeas:  I’m not ttc anymore but when I was it meant having sex 3-4 times a week, more during the middle of my cycle or when I noticed my cervical mucus had changed. For many people temping and charting and peeing on ovulation strips causes more stress than it’s worth, but it doesn’t mean you aren’t trying if you don’t do those things!

For us, I tracked my cycles using BBT and CM for two years off the pill before we started TTC. While TTC we would have sex every day during my fertile window. We are both 27 and it took us 4 months to conceive. 

If you are only having sex 4-5 times per month it’s possible you could be missing your fertile window entirely, and I think tracking your CM and using OPKs are a good idea!
