That you temp, use ov sticks, and so on? Do you tell them the outcome?
My OH knows I come on here, and that I have a stash of sticks I use. He never asks the result of them, and I rarely tell him. I have been known to tell him when its shown ovulation as I get excited (irregular cycles!) but its more a 'wow look what it says my body is doing' rather than a 'we must DTD right now'. My reasons for not necessarily sharing with him is because I don't want him (or me) to feel like we are just DTD because of what the stick says.

I only temped for a month H knew and I would send him daily screen shots of my chart when he was working away, he was really interested after I had explained to him and involved him in it.
It never felt like a military operation because we still had sex when we felt like it, but just made sure we did it around ovulation time too!

She knows the lot obviously. Cant be messing around unecesarily with man juice! haa haa

He knew when I did, but I haven't bothered with it all for months now.

I don't temp or do any tracking yet but if I did I think he would be interested, at the moment he does keep asking when is a good time. He doesn't know I use this forum though.

he knows but is only interested to a certain point. i have the FF app on the ipad so he flicks on it from time to time to see whats going on and whats what. i've tried to explain what it means but he doesnt get it. Because we've had trouble since coming off the pill and ive gone for ultrasound and blood tests hes more intrigued to know when everything goes back to normal so hes asking more questions lately. He gets excited when we get a positive opk as its a "yay, your body works" moment haha

We dtd every other day during the cycle when AF has gone then when I think it's ov time we try and do it every day for at least three days :)

I use OPKs. My OH doesn't know. I prefer to keep that way so as to to add too much pressure.

I do tell my H but I'm not sure how much he listens or is bothered by any of it but is happy to dtd on the right days

Choc Apple I think thats my mantra. I don't want to add any pressure, I know its the right time and work with that.

I don't tell my H when I'm ovulating, as don't want him to think that's the only reason I'm seducing him (not that the distinction probably bothers him) but tell him when my period comes and am all down....

He knows I'm temping as my cycles are erratic and it's the only sure way of keeping track of them. Every now and then he'll ask how it's doing and if I've red lines yet and I'll show him if anything interesting happens on there but that's about it.

He knew I was temping for the 3 previous months, although I've stopped this month, and he knows I use OPKs. He doesn't like me doing this stuff though as he thinks me thinking about it all too much isn't good he thinks it stresses me out.... he's right! I also stress about it when I don't do these things though!
