I'm sorry to hear that you got AF. Maybe it was a chemical pregnancy?

Don't feel stupid..I am pretty new to all of this stuff too, but I will let you know what I know.

You would need to by a basal body thermometer (like eight dollars, get an account at, take your temp every morning before you get out of the bed or do anything (it has to be at the same time everyday in order for your chart to be accurate), and then put the numbers onto your chart on fertilityfriend. I think you would also note on the chart any changes to your CM, when you BD, and any symptoms you are having (I'm not positive on that one). You can also register for a class on fertilityfriend to help explain things to you.

As for the EWCM you can get FertileCM from and that is suppose to help with the EWCM. Also, if having no EWCM is a problem, pre-seed (lubricant for you) can help as well. It has really good reviews you can also get that at

As for the OPK's I used ClearBlue Easy Digital OPK's this month (they are a little more expensive but they show a smiley face 12-36 hrs before you ovulate) and on the package it says that if you have had a period less than 25 days within the last 3 cycles you should start testing on cycle day 5, but if that isn't the case you would start testing on cycle day 10.

I hope this helps and again I'm sorry for AF showing her ugly face
