I’m getting married next May. FI and I will use NFP sympto-thermal method (STM) if we decide we have serious/grave reason to avoid pregnancy. I have read quite a lot of CCL’s material (an old book with a daffodil on the front as well as some instructor manuals), but we’re holding out for a class we can attend together since we’re a four hour drive apart. No one seems to offer weekend classes!
I left my thermometer in the hot car on one of my visits, and I’ve been too lazy to get another one (actually I did get another, but it turned out to be defective). So until I motivate myself to get a new thermometer, I’m just relying on mucus and cervical observations. (Truthfully, the temperatures were kind of all over the place anyway. I set my alarm for the same time each morning, laid in bed for an 8 min snooze, switched sides and got out of bed after 8 minutes, and read the thermometer after a total of 16min. My temperatures would still go up and down by .3-.5 degrees and I never could identify a strong thermal shift. Granted, I only got 2.5 cycles of data before I broke the thing.)
So anyway, now that I’ve been paying closer attention to the other observations, it seems like my peak mucus day is day 6 or so. Interestingly enough, my libido is highest before and during menses :rolleyes: .
The thing is, my cycle is not that short- usually 30 days. Can anyone with more experience give me some insight?
