Q: Who uses fertility charting?
A: Many women use fertility charting because they are having difficulty conceiving. Many people simply wish to understand their unique pattern and become more aware of their natural fertility cycle, while others find that fertility awareness is an acceptable mode of family planning and contraception that fits their values and lifestyle. Charting your fertility allows you to know more about your fertility pattern and thus to better anticipate your fertile phases. And by bringing your chart with you when you see your doctor, you can give them a valuable source of information and not waste time.
