3: Take Control by Charting Your Unique
By keeping a daily record of the sensation and appearance of mucus at the vulva you
can learn to recognise your times of infertility and fertility, and the time of ovulation.
Every woman is an individual with her own individual pattern. This means that you
can learn to recognise signs and symptoms that don’t fit with your individual pattern.
Most women quickly grasp their unique pattern, and a trained Billings Ovulation
Method™ tutor can ensure that you are correctly interpreting your chart. A World
Health Organisation trial in five countries show that over 90 percent of women can
identify the fertile phase and the Peak day of fertility in their first month of observation
How to Keep the Chart
At the end of each day you record your observations of the sensation produced by
the mucus outside the vagina. If you see any mucus you write down your observations
of its appearance. Just a couple of words on your chart and then use appropriate
coloured stamps or write the symbol that represents what has happened.
