Best method of "charting to avoid?"

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi all!
I'm really familiar with charting to TTC and used Fertility Friend for a few years.  Now, I'm breastfeeding my 2 month old and DH and I want to work with FAM/NFP to avoid conceiving until we decide whether or not we're done and do something for birth control like vasectomy or IUD. FF says that their software can't really support charting to avoid.  

Does anyone have recommendations for software/online programs to use? I need to re-read TCOYF, but would prefer to avoid paper charting. Thanks!

I've heard of charting to conceive and charting to avoid, but assumed it was the same. I'm curious to hear more about this!

There's Kindara (its an app). There's also the Couple To Couple League. They have a homestudy and their own software. The problem between charting to conceive and charting to avoid is that you can mess up a lot when you're TTC and still get pregnant. When you're TTA, you may only be able to slip up a single time and have another child to raise. Since you are breastfeeding, I would recommend either going to classes or doing the homestudy to make sure you thoroughly know all of the rules and exceptions.

I just read TCOYF and started charting to avoid. I am using the paper to get familiar with everything but you can go to their website TCYOF.com and if you create a login and account you can chart on their website and it inputs everything automatically for you. I will wait until I am more familiar with the method before I try automated charting. Good luck!
