Hi!! Welcome, I'm fairly new to this board also. You can do charting using fertilityfriend.com. I use an ovulation predictor, I have the clear blue easy machine, and I like it. You can also buy sticks that you wee on.

Hi and thank you.

I have heard about them, do they really work?

My doctor advised BD every other day to ensure that the swim team is ready for the race.

Welcome to the board! Congratulations on your decision to ttc...I hope you find it fun and easy!

There are many things you can do to increase your chances of pregnancy, such as those already mentioned like temping (I love www.fertilityfriend.com for free charting software and a learning course) or OPKs. Utilizing both of these methods will allow you to understand your body/cycles even better.

I also recommend reading Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler, which is like the ttc bible. It's very informative, and I've found it extremely useful in not only expanding my knowledge but reiterating some of the methods we're already using.

I hope you find a great home here, but not for too long! Sending loads of baby dust your way!
