My best friend is trying to conceive her third child (she is in her 30s), and was told by her doctor to take her basal body temperature every morning. She was bombarded with information at the doctor's office, and now at home, has some questions that she's confused by:
1. How long does she need to take her temperature (how many cycles?), as she wants to be pregnant soon.
2. She is most fertile when her temperature rises, which happens at the end of ovulation. Meaning: she won't know that she should be having sex until AFTER ovulation, which is her most fertile time. Is there a better method?
