charting 101

So since I am on my first round of Clomid starting Sunday, I am going to guess charting would be optimal at this point.

What is the best bbt I can buy at wal mart or albertsons?

Would you recommend opk's this cycle?

Which brand do you prefer?

Re: charting 101

  • The girls on TTCAL are big time charters and love some therm called "mabis". I have a 10 $ Walmart special. You need to make sure it is a BASAL therm- that you've had at least 3 hours of sleep and you take it at the same time every morning (first thing in the morning)

    Currently I temp orally but will switch to vaginal next cycle (vaginal is optimal especially if you snore/mouth breathe).

    I can't recall if I did OPKs with my clomid cycles or not... Maybe someone else can help you there. I don't see why not.

    It is especially helpful to see that your temps, OPKs, and CM line up together and will make it easier to pin point O.

    But beware clomid dried me out CM wise so I would UP the water intake big time right before O.

    Hope this helps. Good Luck!

  • Be aware that whatever you choose vaginal vs oral to not switch mid cycle it will throw off your temps because vaginal will run a bit higher...

  • Any digi therm that says "basal" on it should be fine. I use cheapie wondfos, when I get a + I confirm with a digi.
