Three year FAMiversary. December 10, 2009

Filed under: Fertility — Annette @ 9:34 am

It’s somewhat hard for me to believe, but as of a few days ago, it’s been three full years since I started charting with FAM. I would never go back.

There are things I notice and understand about my body now that I never would have known if it weren’t for FAM. Without charting, you are entirely in the dark about your cycles. Despite claims to the contrary, if you’re not charting, you never know where you are in your cycle at a given time. You can guess, and maybe have a roughly good idea if you have clockwork cycles (but really, who does?), but you don’t KNOW. You don’t know if you’re having a normal cycle, if you had an anovulatory cycle, if it’s normal flow, anovulatory bleeding, midcycle spotting, implantation spotting, if you’re pregnant or if you just worked out more than usual and have a delayed cycle. You just don’t know. With FAM, you know. You can use that information for fertility purposes if you choose, but there’s so much information you gain by just charting that doesn’t even necessarily have to be used for fertility purpose. It’s about being informed and understanding your body.

And, for the record, I am not pregnant.

    Can i just say- I concur! I love FAM and never plan on going back on birth control again. I’ve been charting for 13 cycles and it’s amazing what you learn about your body. We are in our 5th month of TTC. I was a little disappointed that it is taking so long. My cycles have been a little wonky. But I’m in my TWW right now and my chart is looking beautiful. I think this may be the month.

      I just saw this comment I made and wanted to say- It was the month. We had a beautiful baby boy on Aug 13, 2010! Thanks FAM! 🙂
