Hi all...

I am TTC no 2 and have been charting since about August last year but I have been learning along the way so I cant call my charting consistent by any stretch.

I have just started using Fertility Friend Ap on my iPhone because I think it will help to prompt me to record all the various bits and pieces and because it provides a picture, it helps keep me checking in.

I am wondering if my partial data entry in months gone by (such as no temps in October etc) will be helping me get skewed stats.  I have back-entered all of my past data which I was recording manually on paper. And, from beginning of January, I will now be able to be consistent and thorough in my data entry now that I have a grasp of what I am doing and why.

The result is that according to FF I havent ovulated since Jul/Aug and it shows that my luteal phase is only 6 days long according to averages.  This leads me to wonder if the missing data in past cycles could be making it all read a bit odd.

Any thoughts would be welcomed...

I unfortunately only appear to know my stuff because I've been TTC for ages Tounge1.gif

To find the link to your chart go to the horizontal menu up the top, click "Sharing" then under "Charting Home Page" go to "Get Code" and it will tell you your chart address original.gif

Hi there - I'd be keen to see your chart as well but I  think the missing temps might throw things off.  If you have months where you have very little data, it might be worth ditching from FF all together.  As you continue to use FF, you'll quickly build up new patterns that will make it easier to see what's going on.  I also used the app - it's a great idea and makes it easier to remember to record what's going on !  Good luck!

Hi OP - your link above doesn't seem to work, just takes us to the login page. Either find the link the way canine said, or to get it from the iPhone app, click on More > Share/email chart.  From there, you can either go to the create/preview home page & copy the link there, or go via email chart link & email yourself the links, which gives you the straight URL, the HTML link and the BB code. I'm not sure which one works best in EB (maybe the bb?), but should get there somehow original.gif    

Anyway, I've only recently started charting too & entered old data, mainly just AF dates, and it seems to work ok, but my months were all between 28-31 days, so no weird ones to skew the data. It also doesn't show O, but that would be due to me not recording enough info to predict that. I'm guessing the more data you put in now though, the more it will be able to predict O, AF, etc. I did think it would pretty much reset each cycle, but just give you estimations based on previous data, then even out when months seemed more regular?

Good luck! I'm just about to start temping & using opks, so might start sharing after then!

OK... I went to FF and set p my own homepage.  Now instead of my 'home' showing my chart dashboard, it comes up a blank white page called Alli's chart.  Once I click on the side where it says 'My Chart' it takes me into my page of data etc.

When I clicked on share, get code it offered a page of stuff.  The top two codes were for web page or browser - long code and a short one.

The next section said for sharing chart in blogs etc so I have copied both the long and short.

I hope it works.  If not, I am so sorry.  Please bear with me and let me know what I am doing wrong!  Thank you so so much.

OOWAAAHHHHHH I think i did it.

Remember to click on the left where it says my chart.  The first page it takes you to is blank and very uninviting.

Hmm... Couldn't get any of your links to work, sorry!

I'll see if I can play around with mine after work tonight to see if I can link mine.

Ok using the desktop site go to the sharing tab and choose 'get code' under the charting homepage section in the sharing tab.
Scroll right to the top and you should see a code with ' charting home page web address' above it.
That is the link you need to share.

Now the page that has the code is where you set up your homepage.
There is a ' preview'  link underneath the code for your homepage, click on that and see if/what you have on your homepage.

Hope that helps

I followed your instructions Beccajayne (thanks for helping)

http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/41ac41

When I click on this new link, it takes me to a page that just says "Alli's Chart" and then the rest of the page is blank.  On the left side I can click on "My Chart" but im not sure if anyone else can.  

Not sure what I have done that has caused my home page to set up funky like this.

The data in past FF charts won't affect this one in determining ovulation but it will affect your LP and FP stats for what they are worth.  

From what you have recorded this cycle looks anovulatory sad.gif

Yay, chart now is viewable - even the link you put up previously, so maybe it was some setting in FF?

As the previous poster said, this month is looking like you haven't O'd? Can happen from time to time? But again, as I said I'm only new to this too. The stalk or be stalked group are more familiar with interpreting charts. Good luck!

Thanks girls... I think the temps say it loud and clear - too low for anything to have happened.  glare.gif  I decided on about CD 21 to write off this cycle and not let it worry me too much.  Jut gonna start fresh from next AF.

Thank you so much for looking and offering your thoughts.  Having the input and sharing it all with others definitely makes a world of difference.

Hi HappyLife! I was wondering if you can help me. I've only just started temping this cycle, but wanted to enter the dates of previous cycles. However, I couldn't work out how to do this? unsure.gif Can you please tell me how you did this? Thanks! biggrin.gif

Sarah Mac if you go to your desktop site of fertility friend, click on the data link and select ' mass data entry'  it should then allow you to input your previous data.

Hi Sarah,

I did mine from the app, but I didn't have temps, so my entry was not so involved. I just clicked on the date I wanted to add data to on the calendar to go to its data entry form & entered the info - from there you can click the arrows at the top to go to the next date.

Beccajayne's suggestion sounds like it may be quicker & easier than entering from the app though, so would probably be the best option for you. original.gif I only went with the app as I had time to kill & did it sitting in front of the telly biggrin.gif
