Post subject: Charting CM and CP Vs Temping......Opinions?
Hi Peeps

Just wondering what everybody's opinion was regarding just using CM and CP to determine Ov rather than doing your temps? I am only using CM and CP at the moment because I feel as though the temp reading is a step too far for me...have only been TTc for 3 months, but have only had one af since coming off bcp.

Do any of you girls just use CM and CP and do you find that this is accurate enough? I personally think that cm is quite accurate but still trying tgo figure out my cp which seems to always be high!

Hoe bout you ladies who temp?, of which there seems to be quite a lot of you on this forum. What are the benefits? and do you think that CM and CP is accurate enough?

Would be good to get your opinions.

Hi, for me i do all Laughing I did find charting very hard in the beginning. But now i quite like it !!
The thing is it is building up a whole pattern using all your signs.

With charting you can get a rough idea you are about ov. Then have ! or not Sad

But you do what you are comfortable with hun.

Wishing you luck xxx

P.s feel free to look at my chart x Wink

Very Happy I'm gonna wait until Friday. I don't want to temp fate. Even if it is a BFP, i still have a way to go. As i had a sterilisation reversal, i have to have a early scan in case of ectopic.
So it's all a bit scary !!!

What about you hun ? xxx

I founc CP is a great way to tell if I am about to get my period! I don't bother with a pregnancy test - just check my cp and I can tell I'm about to come on. When I had my sons it was really high and I knew to go get a pregnancy test.

As for using cp to work out when you ovulate - I didn't find it easy - I'm using ov kits at the moment.
