How many of you charted or used an OPK to help with getting pregnant? I had a d & c @ 18 weeks on Feb 12. I never tried with my first or this past pregnancy. I really want to get pregnant again. I just wanted to know who has done what and do you recommend either one or both.

Most of us either chart or use OPKs. I do both. I like knowing as much as I can to give us the best odds. Even with perfect timing we haven't had luck.

Yes like Mindi said most of us either temp or use OPK's and a lot of us do both.

I've been doing both for 10 months now; our first month of TTC after our loss, I just went by feel when we tried.

Yes that's a good point about having info if you need to seek help. I guess that's why it was so easy for me to stop. We have been beyond the point of getting help for a while now.

I just do charting, because it is free! I enter temps on Fertility Friend and monitor cervical mucus, too. It has helped me get pregnant 3 times. OPKs don't really work with my schedule, but some people love them. Good luck!

my schedule is so weird that temping doesn't really work for me, so I tend to use OPKs and to check CM.
