    I have been tracking my cervix for a little while now, and I'm starting to really get to know the changes. But last month it did not get soft or open up.I always check it at the same time in the afternoon when I'm not aroused, I ovulated just fine, and nothing else seemed off with my chart. Do you know why this might have happened?

    Hi Jordan, thanks for contacting us!  I totally understand how confusing it can feel when your body doesn't behave as expected.  I'm afraid it's hard to say exactly why this might have happened - however, it's important to note that your cervix is generally the least reliable fertility sign of the three compared to cervical fluid and basal body temperature.  Cervix position is usually regarded as a supplementary sign and should not be relied on for determining whether you're fertile or not since it's the most prone to error.  Personally I would probably chalk this experience up to a strange cycle by chance - this may happen again next cycle and it may not.  Sorry I can't give you a more definitive answer!  Let me know if you have any questions.

    I am just about to start my first month of tracking! I finished my last pack of BC pills and am so happy to be going natural!

    Is it okay to begin with just tracking temperature and cervical fluid? I have been doing cervical checks throughout this past month but am having a hard time classifying what I feel. Is sortof always feels the same. Im sure this knowledge and recognition is built in time. Do you feel the method of FAM is still as effective without the cervical tracking? I want to be as safe as possible. I am trying to avoid pregnancy.

    Thank you so much for all that you do on Kindara. It is very emowering to have this outlet as I make my transition!

    Hi Jarynt,

    Absolutely!  BBT and Cervical Fluid tracking are the two most important signs, cervix tracking is often considered to be supplemental, so you should feel very confident using BBT and CF tracking alone.  Best of luck as you make your transition, and please ask us any questions that come up along the way!

    Does the cervix change immediately once conception occurs? Mine was firmer around my peak day for some reason, and now is more open after ovulation.
