Okay, well, I love the free online charting and the pretty graphs it makes, I HATE that it is always wrong on ovulation dates. I mean, what rules are they using? They have been wrong on every single ovulation date that I've charted with them and it is sooo frustrating. The dates they suggest don't even make sense

It's bad enough for me but I'm seriously worried about women who they may be misleading What if you were relying on them?? Argh....

Britt, that sounds seriously frustrating. Do you think that it is giving you 0 too early or too late? Just wondering. I'm going to start charting next month and was wondering what to use. I used it last time. Is there anything else out there?

I am having the same situation this month. I have gone back and forth on overriding because I just started charting. I just took away my override to make sure I am prepared for AF in case I am wrong.

However, I am fairly certain I o'd 3 days later than they gave me. I think the reason for my incorrect thermal shift was a cold. I told them I had a fever, but it didn't change anything despite that I inputted ewcm and wcm the days following their o-date.

So I understand your frustration. You are not alone!

MIne have been pretty close to right all the time...But DO NOT be afraid to use the override. After all it is only a computer program, and you know your body better. Don't take it too much to heart.

I have had to fix mine a couple of times too...

Last cycle they got mine right, but this month they had me Oing on cd 9. As much as I would love that to be true, I knew it wasn't so had to override it. I honestly have no idea why they thought I had Oed on that day

I want to start charting this month and was going to use fertility friend. Are there any other free charting services out there that are more reliable?

Thanks
