I am done with stupid birth control methods that mess with everything about my body's balance! So. I have been toying with FAM over the last year. I've paid vague attention to cervical fluid and have noticed some of my individual cyclic quarks. I can also tell very clearly when I ovulate, I count 14-15 days after that point and always start AF, which is why I haven't invested more time into FAM. Anyway, I would like to start charting more legitimately. I would like opinions on whether you ladies who chart think its worth the money to use software like Ovusoft. Has anyone found it not as useful as they thought? Its not the biggest decision of my life, whether or not to buy this stuff, but if it really does make charting a lot more convenient or easier to understand, I am all for that! If not, I'd rather not waste the money? TIA

I love my ovusoft ware. It even can predict my start date when I'm pretty sure it's wrong. And it's always 90% spot on.

Not everyone hatches their eggs at 14 days. I'm more of a day 17-18 even with a standard monthly mense.

I am realizing an additional question needs to be asked regarding the fertility software. I have a mac, which ones are most compatible as I see Ovusoft is not?

I did not notice that before
I decided to hunt, because I can

I found

http://www.ikonceive.com/

http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id...ate-calculator

I don't know if they are any good, I use win7....but it is a starting area
iKonceive looks nice on my quick peak
and both have trials

hope that helps!

Thanks for the hunt! I haven't had time to do anything much but basic snooping while I'm at work. I'll do some more research as it doesn't appear anyone has much opinion on the matter!

I've been using Fertility Friend's free version and have been happy with that.
