    I just do it the first time I wake up for the final time. It says that different times etc can vary your temperatures but I experimented when I first got the thermometre and testing myself several times in the same day, it was pretty much always 36.5 (36.51, 36.52, 36.51, 36.53 etc) so I think that it does work regardless of what time you do it. It is just easiest to remember to do it if you do it before you get up for the day.

    Since doing it I have noticed that I get a big drop on the day of ovulation (35ish) and then it rises over the next couple of days and then stays high (37ish) for the luteal phase until AF arrives.

    I have found it very reassuring so I would definitely give it a go.

    Definitely definitely give temping a go. You can do it vaginally for a better result too. A had many months of getting iffy and false positives OPKs due to PCOS, I rarely got any ovulation symptoms and the only way I could confirm was by temping.

    that is low, but maybe it is lower if you do it vaginally?? I think the main thing is to view the patterns, so even if it is low it would still follow the pattern.

    I only do it orally but Kitty mentioned vaginally and I've heard a couple of other girls say that too. Personally I think orally is easier :)
