I just started reading the message board. You guys seem to have some great advice. I just started TTC and I am very nervous. I noticed that some of you use the fertility friend website to do your charting. How do you find it works? Are there any other websites you can recommend?

Welcome! Many of us do use Fertility Friend for our charting, as well as BabyMed.com. I've also seen some people use Ovusoft.com.

FF has a free 30-day trial of the VIP features when you first sign up. After your trial period, you can decide whether to pay for continued VIP access, or just use the free charting tools. Babymed is free, I don't know about Ovusoft.

I use both FF and Babymed, because sometimes they give different information. They also both have great FAQs and info on TTC. I find it helpful to use both. I did pay for FF VIP access, but that's totally up to you.

Here's my chart if you want to see what one looks like:


Also, if you haven't already read Taking Charge of Your Fertility, I highly recommend it. Your library may have a copy. It will give you LOTS of great info on charting your cycles and ttc.

Good luck! I hope your stay is short and sweet.

Thank you. I have a lot to learn about charting, message boards, etc. Looks like you have been doing this for about 3 cycles? I will check out the other websites you suggested and the book.

Look forward to chatting in the future!
