    My H didn't want anything to do with any of that charting stuff when we were going to start TTC. And I don't blame him. It's clinical, stressful and (to me) gross.
    What's so gross about taking your temperature?

    With DD we tòok a relaxed approach and didnt bother with temping etc.

    With DS I took my temps and tracked my cycle but didn't tell DH. Just initiated things a bit more when I was ovulating.

    I don't think any kind of charting, including checking CM is gross.

    My DH knows I chart and check everything. I casually told him one little component every now and then which he actually remembered, and jokes about it from time to time. (Thinks the word mucous is hilarious!) I don't keep him up to speed with everything though.

    Charting has helped me learn so much about my body so I love it. Am also hoping not to go back on the pill ever so hoping I can use charting to avoid a pregnancy later. That said, the month we conceived our DS we were overseas and I didn't chart anything; taking it easy may have done the trick after 15 months TTC!

    Good luck!

    My DP finds its too much pressure, psychs himself out and can't "perform"... Now it's all just fun & practice - & I even pretend it's NOT my window if we're dtd! (But I know!)
