I just started my first pp AF a few days ago and had been planning to start charting as soon as my cycles returned however I'm going to be flying half way around the world (literally) on CD8 and returning on CD16. My average O before DS2 was CD16. Would it be impossible to tell anything this month if I temped? Or maybe I should just temp to get used to doing it again but use backup BC.

I would start temping to get in the habit but use a backup form of BC for this cycle.

It's common to have longer cycles with delayed ovulation at first when you are postpartum.  You just might see a pattern.


How good are you with CM?  CM alone is quite effective, and when your temperatures are questionable, it's an excellent way to tell, or it could at least help in interpreting what is going on temp-wise.
