I've heard about this, but how do you do it and what does it show? Sorry for the stupid question, but this all new to me.

Hey Jamie - hope I can help. I was very new to this just a few months ago and have learnt so much! My best bit of advice would be for yout to go to www.fertilityfriend.com and check out the info there. Basically, checking your temps along with cervical fluid can help you to determine your most fertile time and the charting at Fertility Friend is really good. I used their test charts for a month - they were free - and then went on to chart full time they were so good. Basically, your temp dips when you have AF and then after you've ovulated you should get a temperature rise that will last around the time af comes. Unless you're preggo - then your temp should stay elevated. But that's a really basic outline! Check out the site - I have learnt so much! All the best to you xxxxx

Also the book taking charge of your fertility by Toni Wexler is a great source as well as fertilityfriend.com- which is also where I chart. Take temp with a basal therm. first thing in am before you get out of bed. Try to take it at the same time each day. After you ovulate it will go up, and stay up until you have af- then it will drop (unless pregnant- it'll stay up). It's a great way to get to know your cycle better!
