    Default Anyone temp

    Did/does anyone temp? I was thinking about starting temping next cycle just to see what my body's doing.

    Did you take your temp vaginal or orally. Any other tips? I have a basal thermometer that still in it's packaging from years ago

    I do when TTC but not when I'm not.

    I take orally. Supposed to be after at least 2 hours of sleep in a row and at the same time every day. Some people don't have to do that, but most do I'd say. For me the sleep part has to be accurate, but I can temp during a two hour window and get accurate readings. I keep a notebook by my bed to write in. You can't get up out of bed, take your temp first, then go pee!

    I get up 1-2x a night to pee, so I'm not sure how that's going to work. I think I'll give it a shot my next cycle anyway. My kids are a little unpredictable and get up between 5-7am.

    I have a 14 month old and a toy poodle who are both pretty unpredictable about when they will wake up and need me...so I don't temp. I go by CM and sometimes OPK.

    I do the OPKs... I also have a period app on my phone that helps me keep track. my cycles are anywhere from 29-33 days. I tend to 0 between CD 21-23 surprisingly my cycles are regular after going off BC. I have never had regular cycles and needed OPKs when we got PG with Tommy. Worked 2nd cycle.

    I'm having my IUD pulled in March and we plan on temping because we will be trying the Shettles method, so I will have to watch my cycles closely. I am a mouth breather when I sleep so I will probably have to take my temps vaginally.
