Hi ladies,

I was thinking of trying to temp next month if I don't conceive this month.
For those who do the BBT tracking can anyone recommend a Basal body temperature? Are the ones with apps any good? TIA xx wine

I've found Natural Cycles is really good for me - and if you sign up for the year they send you a free BBT thermometer.

Also, people quite often share Natural Cycle discount codes on here - have a search?

I use kindara (free) and fertility friend (i pay for this one) then bought a thermometer on amazon for about £6 works great

Hi @beckya82

If you're interested in Natural Cycles, my code gets you 30% off and a free thermometer 😊

I really rate it! We tried for 7 months using OPKS but didn't get a positive most months, then got pregnant 3 months after using Natural Cycles 👍🏻 We sadly miscarried in January but I'm using it again and it's helping me understand how my cycle is after the miscarriage.

Good luck! X

I’m also using natural cycles, used someone’s discount code from here!
I really like it so far but I’ve not been using it long

Ive just started trying to temp this month hate to b tmi but do yous take ur temperature under the armpit or is it more accurate in the mouth or errr other way lol

I do mouth, apparently the most important thing is that you do it the same way as it’s the change in temp you are looking for

I done under the arm past few days but kept gettin a different temperature reading

I tried both vaginally and orally. I found they were both as consistent... just orally was 0.2 degrees lower. So not I just do orally as it's massively easier. Haha

Yh much easier think ill try that from now lol

I do it orally - think it's more hygienic and just easier/quicker. Pop it under my tongue and doze back off for a sec!! Like someone said, main thing is to do it the same way each day x
