    What are some symptoms that I could track? Will this effect my chart at all besides having little dots at the bottom?

    Hi pennylo - you can track anything you'd like! Some women track symptoms, such as back pain, acne, nausea, or headaches. Some women track their moods, such as cranky, frisky, or happy...I track things like: Exercise, Caffeine, Alcohol, Tired, Meditation...et cetera :) Marking a custom data field won't change anything on your chart other than the dots you'll see at the bottom.

    What happens if one sees spotting on day 21 for. Couple of days in a 28 day cycle

    Hi there,

    Spotting anytime from a week after ovulation until your expected period could be a sign of pregnancy. When a fertilized egg burrows into the uterine lining, it can cause spotting, also known as implantation spotting. If your temperatures stay high for at least 18 days after ovulation, then this is a very good sign that you're pregnant :)

    What about implantation dip?

    Hi there,

    Actually, implantation dip is largely a myth. Some women experience a drop in their basal temps midway through the luteal phase - however, this dip doesn't necessarily mean they're pregnant. The dip is often due to a second, smaller surge of estrogen that can occur whether a woman is pregnant or not. On the other hand, plenty of women who ARE pregnant do not experience the dip. 

    A much better way to tell if you're pregnant is to wait and see if your temperature remain high for at least 18 days past ovulation.

    Hey there,

    After ovulation, your temperature should stay in a higher range for the rest of your cycle. If you get pregnant, it should stay in this higher range throughout your pregnancy. Some women experience a temperature dip mid-way through the luteal phase (the phase between ovulation and your next cycle), but this isn't necessarily due to pregnancy - it's due to a second, smaller surge of estrogen that some women experience regardless of whether they're pregnant.

    For more information on the temperature shift, please read this article: https://kindara.zendesk.com/entries/23880036-Temperature-Shift-FAQs

    I just started tracking my data. We miscarried in Nov. and was feeling helpless about what I thought were irregular cycles! Kept wondering when I was fertile! Charting helps me feel like I'm aware if my body and it's giving me peace and confidence! Thank you!! I have a question...On days 13,14,15 I had VERY EWCF. Day 14 being long and stretchy, clear, and very watery. We got down to business as I saw this as a good indicator of my feryility. I did not however have a temp. Shift until day 20. Between day 15-20 I had some CF, but not nearly as much and it was more creamy. I am nervous that we missed our window this month because we missed a couple days between day 15-20 as my cf looked less fertile. Is your PK day related to your highest EWCF or the day before your temp shift? Do you recommend intercourse every other day until you have a temp shift? Even if your cf becomes less "fertile?"

    Hi laura - your peak day is the last day of fertile (i.e. wet) cervical fluid before it dries up for again - note that it's not the day of the MOST cervical fluid. It sounds like your peak day was on day 15 - however, this doesn't mean you weren't fertile days 15-20! We do recommend having sex every day or every other day until you notice a temperature shift. f you haven't noticed a temperature shift, you haven't ovulated - so you are potentially fertile during this time.

    Is there a way we can set the color of the dots for tracking custom data? I have lots of custom data I track and long-ish cycles so it gets hard figuring out which dot is for which data. I think different colored dots would help a lot.

    Is it normal for your temp shift to happen before your peak day?

    When I'm menstruating, how do I check my CF? I feel like the bleeding would interfere, but maybe I'm missing something! Also, I use a Diva Cup--how do I make the distinction whether it's considered a heavy/med/light flow when I enter info on the app? Thanks!

    On CD16/2DPO, I had very very light pink spotting. What could this mean? Thank you.

    Is it normal to not have much CM, I find it hard tracking this but do track BBT an used OPK so I know I have ovulated after temp shift. Didn't know if lack of EWCM means anything?
