View Full Version : Q-where is the best website to monitor fertility
05-23-2009, 02:53 PM
I am still nursing my 8 mo. and no menstrual cycle has returned yet. My DH and I would like another DC (whenever we are blessed with one).
Could you please recommend which website(s) you use to monitor your fertility each day? Do you use an actual basal therm or will a regular digital therm work ok?
Any websites and/or suggested reading will be greatly appreciated. TIA everyone!

A frequently recommended site is http://www.fertilityfriend.com/ It is easy to use and the paid features are worth it IMO.
I used a basal thermometer.

A great resource are the forums at ovusoft.com. The board is owned by Toni Weschler, author of "Taking Charge of Your Fertility." If you haven't read that book, I highly recommend it! Ovusoft also sells software that tracks your fertility, similiar to FF.
BTW, I used a basal thermometer, because I wanted the higher precision of a BBT.

You need a thermometer that is accurate to 0.1 degree, it can be digital. Toni Weschler (see above) recommends the BD basal digital thermometer. I also recommend her book. It is a very informative read for any woman.

I used www.fertilityfriend.com to track ovulation, etc prior to DD.

I used Fertility Friend, too, in conjunction with Taking Charge of your Fertility. I looked at the ovusoft site, but thought FF was more user-friendly. I don't know, that's been about four years, though, so things could have changed.
I bought a basal thermometer at Walgreens for less than $10. It's pink :p and goes to the hundredth place instead of just the tenths.

What has your experience been in tracking fertility prior to having a return period?
I forgot to mention I have the book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" ... I am glad to see that is recommended - guess I should take it out, dust it off, and get to reading.
