I recently discovered The Cycles Page <a href="http://www.cyclespage.com" target="_blank">http://www.cyclespage.com</a>. It is a handy tool for tracking periods, and can be used to track temperatures and cervical mucous for those who practice FAM.<br><br><br><br>
I like it because, after entering information for a few months, it figures out the average length of your cycle and gives you a calendar with predicted menstruation and ovulation dates for the next six months.<br><br><br><br>
Unlike many similar websites and software programs, it's free and will run on any computer.

just as a reminder to readers, a predicted ovulation date is not accurate for determining fertility, where as the sympto-thermal method (FAM) can teach you to observe the signs of fertility and record them.<br><br><br><br>
just FYI. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

The page does say that the ovulation date should be treated as an "educated guess". If you're recording mucus, BBT, etc. then you are using a sympto-thermal method. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Oh, I know. I would never rely on just "counting", especially for birth control. I like that it lets you track all the rest and gives you charts for that as well.

*chuckle* I've been arguing with a gal on a diaphragm listserv about the "counting method". It started when she was saying that it was the same as FAM. I was like um..not exactly, and explained, but she didn't give up. I kept thinking about that old joke..."What do you called people who use the Rhythm Method?....Parents." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

i know BPS. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
and i know that, too, Jen! it's amazing. i remember when i first wrote about it here--a lot of people said it was the same thing. a lot of people said that FAM doesn't work, that it's counting/rhythm, and so on. i remember. and now, we have a sticky for it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

How useful would it be for me to track my BBT to determine when I'm going to get my period? not necessarily for this program, but in general.
