I vote monthly but i dont think it matters that much. Guess it depends if it is more for chatting or for discussing cycles lol

I have super regular cycles before children and my cycles were even regular once my AF resumed after DS (which was around 9mos?)

Someone here has a lady comp, right? Wdyt? Anyone have pearly..?

FF is pretty accurate for me...like you Im very regular with my cycles (well before baby and it's now just getting back to normal). Lady comp is too much for me too...temping works just as well for me. My temps were nuts, but they seems to go pretty smooth once I became fertile.

Re: Calling All TTA Charting Addicts!

It's me with the LadyComp. I do love it, but we are thinking of selling it. We bought it wanting long term (forever) birth control and it saves me having to "guess" at my temps and CM etc. It just does everything for me. But since we're using w/d during all phases and not really caring if I get pregnant or not...we don't really need the LC anymore. I think a Pearly or other option (ovacue?) would be just fine. The LC is really great if you don't want to chart at all, don't want to do any of the guessing yourself, or if you want long term birth control.

Hi all! I just finished up my first PP AF, so I'm joining you guys.

Name: Laura
Screen name: L J
Children: Henry, 5; Catherine, 1
TTA methods: sexless marriage. I chart to know what is going on with my body. Pregnancy isn't a big concern around these parts.
Chart: I will add it when I'm not mobile

I didn't start back temping this soon after ds, so I'm really curious to see what my charts look like with dd still nursing all night.

Ds starts kindergarten Monday, and the silver lining to getting up so early is at least my temp time will be consistent!

I love to chart to see what is going on with my body. Even though pregnancy isn't a possibility for me, I feel compelled to start back.

Re: Calling All TTA Charting Addicts!

I'd love to join!

Other DC and ages: jack, 5.5; Silas, 3.5; Mercy, 2; Iris, 6/2/12.

We are officially TTA after four kids! I've loosely charted before but never TTA so this is new for me. Right now I'm just temping until I get the hang of things again.
I'm 2m pp (not bfing)and have had 3 AFs so far, had the Mirena for 10 days and didn't count the AF after removal... So I'm waiting to get a normal AF.

Does anyone who has been doing this a while know if it's typical for those first pp cycles to be annovulatory?

According to my past history, my body should be gearing up to ovulate but I'm not seeing it coming.

Does breast feeding lessen the amount of fertile cf?
