    Thanks for the info.
    Do you have more info on the Sympto-Theram Method, how effective is it compared to the others?
    Has anyone used a device for that, like daysy (https://www.usa.daysy.me/) or cleerblue(coudn’t find the address)?
    It would be helpful if anyone could chime in.
    And thanks again.

      Sympto-Thermal Method is highly effective and comparable to Billings or Creighton.
      The Daysy device is basically a thermoter that interfaces with an app to track your readings. A temperature rise only tells you that ovulation has occurred – it can’t tell you if ovulation is approaching. My guess is that Daysy uses cycle history to predict when the fertile period is likely to begin (possibly the Doering Method) – this can be quite effective for women with regular cycles – it’s inadequate for those with big variation in cycle length.
