How to achieve pregnancy (Billings method)?

with 3 comments

This post is a continuation from the previous post.

What are the phases of the cycle?

Menstruation – infertile phase – fertile phase – peak / ovulation (1 day only!) – infertile phase – menstruation – … and so on.

Infertile phase

  1. after menstruation.
  2. dry / sticky mucus.
  3. known as BIP (Basic Infertile Phase).

Fertile phase

  1. When does it begin? a change from the pattern of infertile phase.
  2. Initial mucus may be cloudy. Do not worry. It is the release of plug that prevents sperms to get into uterus.
  3. Initial 3 days: avoid intercourse. Why? Because your estrogen is still building up. You are not reaching peak yet.
  4. How long is fertile mucus? ~ 6 days before ovulation.
  5. Most obvious (egg-white like) strings are 2-3 days before peak.

Ovulation occurs at the PEAK of fertility.

Signs of peak:

  1. the last day of fertile mucus / slippery sensation.
  2. not necessarily the day of most mucus.
  3. sensation of slippery (wet) is important.

Signs of post-peak

  1. 3 consecutive days after peak, you feel dryness or not-slippery mucus.

How to chart?

  1. sensation (slippery vs sticky or dry) is more importance than appearance.
  2. chart the most fertile sign for that day (e.g. if you feel lumpy, pastry, stringy at different time of today, chart stringy).
  3. consistency. use same word to describe the same mucus.
  4. do not search inside the vagina, which is always wet.

Note:

  1. sparse mucus throughout cycle is infertile sign. Please see a doctor.
  2. douches, vaginal deodorant, lubricative jellies decrease fertility.
  3. severe menstrual pain, endometriosis? Please see a doctor.

God, thank you for letting me to learn about the Billing method so that we can attempt better to have a baby.

God, please also help other couples who are trying to conceive.

Mother Mary please pray for all of us.
