I charted and temped for about 3 months with the intention of getting pregnant. I read/own Taking Charge of Your Fertility and have a basic working knowledge of how all that works. The pill has been my go to method since I was a teenager and I was on the mini pill then a regular pill post partum.

I recently had my doctor switch me to a different pill but if i dont feel more "normal" on that I'm toying with the idea of using charting and temping as our birth control method.

Ideally, we're probably about a year out from trying for #2 but would also welcome another child before then.

What do I need to know, to put this into practice? What app do you use to chart (used FF during TTC, Downloaded Ovia and I like it but its more conception based)? Do you avoid during peak or just use a barrier?
