We are often asked why was this workbook created in the first place. Many women use this workbook while trying to conceive a child or if they wish to track what happens in their normal menstrual cycle. Since every woman is different, this workbook will hopefully help you identify what your normals are. It may sound silly, but this is actually one of our most popular items. This includes: the length of your menstrual cycles, days of menstruation, peak temperature days, and so on. Remember: This workbook is for entertainment purposes only and in no way guarantees pregnancy or prevention of pregnancy. Always seek advice from a qualified medical professional.

Basal Body Tempatures

Q: Are the temperatures displayed in Fahrenheit or Celsius?

A: All of the temperatures are displayed in Fahrenheit. If we find that there requests for a workbook that tracks temperatures in Celsius, we will consider making one to do so. In the meantime, all calculations are based on US Standards.

Q: The cells in my workbook are no longer calculating and some even have errors. What can I do?

"Thanks you so much. I was able to use this workbook to find out that my headaches went along with my cycle."
-Alice, AL

A: Either one of three things are happening. Either there is not enough data to calculate averages, estimates, or end times. Or, you are not tracking that particular item (example: you are not using a commercial ovulation kit to track your ovulation days.) Or, you entered an invalid entry someplace (example: you entered in the start date as 01/01/210 instead of 01/01/2010). Try to close the workbook without saving any changes and reopen it. If there errors are still there, you need to make another copy of the blank copy of this workbook you saved earlier and re-enter your information.

Q: I noticed this workbook is password protected, can I have the password?

A: Sorry, we password protected the workbook to as to help prevent accidental removal of formulas and other issues and feel it is best not to reveal the password.

Day of Ovulation by Cycle

Q: When typing in a note, I can only see the first line of what I typed. What do I do to see everything?

A: You can adjust the height of each row. Move your mouse to the left side of the screen and left click on the bottom of the row you wish to adjust the height on. From here you can drag the row height down until you can see (and print) all of the text of your Notes fields.
