First Time Charter Here...Using Preseed, Femara, & Temps

Postby Ellagsx » Sun Sep 06, 2015 5:48 pm

Hello All~

This is my first month charting temps and using Preseed and Femara (letrozole). I'm still waiting to start my next cycle... let me explain. I normally have 25 day cycles, then I spot 2 then start right on day 25. Well its day 28, no BFP and No symptoms at all. So I've learned not to get my hopes up and start planning for then next cycle. Which brings me to my charting question:

I bought a thermometer that is specifically designed for monitoring BBT and I've read that I'm supposed to take my temperature first thing in the morning before I move or even fully wake up and then chart that everyday. My question is do I temp EVERYDAY of the cycle or just certain days? Also, what is it that I'm actually looking for. I keep hearing about a Spike in temps means something but I'm not sure.

Also, any helpful tips on using Preseed? Are you guys using the full applicator or are you using it more as a lubricator?

I would love any feedback and helpful tips when charting temps for the first time!

Hey!!
it's my first cycle using pre-seed, I used the applicator so it gets it right on the cervix.. also my first time temping to.

I've been reading a book called 'taking charge of your fertility' by Toni Weschler. It is really good and it explains a lot about charting and temping and a lot of stuff to do with ttc. I got it from amazon for like £2 (used- good condition).

Hi Ellags! I just started temping too, just barely caught ovulation. Yes, you temp each morning before you get out of bed or even talk. I keep my therm on my bedside table.

Temping is the only way (besides doc visit) to confirm ovulation. Your temp will go up for three consecutive days at least .5 degrees F. Also, you need to get minimum 3 hours of uninterrupted sleep before you temp. Some ppl say 5.
