Dh and I are looking into NFP.  We don't wake up at the same time every morning and I'm forgetful so I don't think that temping is going to work for me at all.  Then I ran across the Marquette method but I don't seem to understand.

 

1.Do you HAVE to chart mucus with this method or can you just use the fertility monitor?

2. To fully understand this method, would I have to take a class or can I just follow the instructions on their web site?

 

anything else to add?

You can use the monitor if you like.  I am temping as well so that I have some collaborating evidence, lol.  I think it would work fine though without.  The only issue may be if you get a cycle without a peak reading.  You can learn from the website, I did.  I would suggest joining the forums there.  They will give you information and answer any questions you have.  My first cycle was postpartum and I did catch my first ovulation but did not get a peak reading. The method would have kept me safe though so that is good.  Since I was temping I did see I had ovulated.  Now I am in my first real cycel postpartum and got a peak reading today so we'll see if my temp shift happens soon.

Is there a 6 month limit on using these forums? I was afraid to sign up until we were set up with the fertility monitor because that's what it seemed to say...

There does not seem to be.  I remember reading that too but have been on longer and all is well.
