    Hi All:What sort of methods do each of you use for fertility awareness monitoring?

    1) Basal Temping: Do you use a general BBT or the ibasal thermometer?

    2) Ovulation Predictor Sticks? Which ones do you use?

    3) Fertility Monitor? Which one Clear Blue Easy, OvaCue, etc?

    4) Ferning Scope?

    5) CM/CP? Any tips for using this method?6) Combination: what do you combine?

    I only temp (now and in the past). When we start TTC I do have some OPKs to use.

    I do notice a change in CM and can make a good guess on my chances that month based on amount (each month I conceived I had lots around O time) but it can get affected by DTD.

    I track my BBT when I'm charting to TTC or to avoid. I've tried using OPKs in the past but got mixed and confusing results from them so gave up! I always used to find my BBT was enough to tell me what was going on...
