Fertility Abbreviations

If you've spent any time on Fertility Forums, you probably have been trying to figure out why someone BD'd til their OPK showed an LH surge and now they're in the TWW and has FX that AF doesn't come but instead, they get a BFP.

Fertility Apps: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

After downloading a dozen different fertility apps, I determined there are three different kinds:
  • Ovulation finders 
  • Period trackers
  • Get it off my phone!

Each of these serves a different function (and some, no function at all), and figuring out which matches your style is key.
