I recently discovered The Cycles Page http://www.cyclespage.com. It is a handy tool for tracking periods, and can be used to track temperatures and cervical mucous for those who practice FAM.

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.

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.

just FYI.

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.

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."

i know BPS.


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.

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.
