How do I track her cycle if...

January 5, 2017
1 upvotes

Wife has an IUD so she doesn't have regular periods and only spots a little if she does... No tampons. She occasionally tells me she's hormonal (crying, angry at the world, and feels "blah") but it's random... Could be 2 weeks or a few weeks from one instance to the next. She's also been taking a daily SSRI for as long as I can remember. Any reliable way to track or estimate when she's ovulating?

I'd think it was really weird if my SO was tracking my cycle. Really weird. Just sayin'.

[–]Mecha750 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Not really. It is kind of clever as women tend to get hornier around ovulation time. My wife should be ovulating around the 8th. Sooo i am having a really good week.

[–]screechhaterRed Beret0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Did you read this ?

Just curious

[–]Nyquil-Junkie2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

This is the most bizarre thread.... surely this is a troll.

[–]RedPillQuest[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

The original question is totally legit. Read the fucking sidebar. Knowing where she's at in her cycle makes a lot of sense for a few reasons.

Let's start here... I grew up with a mom who would frequently double ovulate (she'd tell us that anyway) and be off the rails bat shit crazy for two to three weeks at a time. I'm talking about a complete melt down about whether the 8 year old put every dish where it belonged when he emptied the dishwasher, resulting in a ransacked kitchen with the box of Cheerios everywhere, broken plates on the floor, etc... Every day... Except that she'd apologize and be more than happy and loving for a week after... Until it started again. As I got older it was just common sense to know when to stay out and when it was ok to go home to hang out. It had everything to do with her cycle.

Cut to wife. Early in marriage it was easy... No IUD and a lower dose of happy pills... Periods were regular and it was clear to me when hormones were affecting her moods and actions (in multiple ways... Don't get your panties in a knot). As a result of paying attention, I could tell when to use a little more beta to comfort her or a little more alpha to turn her on (i was bad at that one anyway). When she was pregnant, all of that shit went out the window (as anyone who's lived around a pregnant woman can attest).

Now I'm in a situation where I can't really tell when something particular is bothering her, when it might be heavily affected by hormones, if she forgot to take her happy pill that day, etc. So I asked the question and got some really good answers mixed in with all the rest of the BS.

So yes, great idea to know what her cycle is. For a ton of reasons... Horniness being just one of them.

But my wife apparently doesn't ovulate at all, leaving me to wonder what the hell is going on when she tells me she's feeling PMSy...

You guys have lives that sound like a living hell.

I'm talking about a complete melt down about whether the 8 year old put every dish where it belonged when he emptied the dishwasher, resulting in a ransacked kitchen with the box of Cheerios everywhere, broken plates on the floor, etc... Every day...

Nope... would never put up with that shit. Someone convinced her she could get away with it and.... she always did.

[–]BobbyPeru1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

Next time she spots, use that as day 1.

[–]RPAlternate42Red Beret4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Won't matter... hormonal means no ovulation.

[–]BluepillProfessorMod / Red Beret0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

There is still a tamped down behavioral effect that you can track. Not nearly as effective, however.

[–]RPAlternate42Red Beret1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I call it unreliable, at best.

My wife was on BC pre me on RP... and a few months in she went off of it and has been off for about 2 years. She recently went back on to get rid of her period.

I've seen, first hand, what the pill does and doesn't do and how immediate its effects can be.

That being said, any "libido" or "desire" from her is still 98% a result of the man's presence; plenty of CC-riding sloots are on the pill and regularly find Chad in their bed on Saturday morning.

OPs wife needs to exercise, regularly and with some intensity. The hard work will drive hormone levels to something more steady (less emotional surges.)

On a similar note: My wife asked me if she can go back on the pill.

"Why are you asking me?"

"because I know it can affect my sex drive." (she's convinced herself that the pill was the reasons he didn't want to fuck me... not because I was a non-leading skinny bastard with no excitement or hobbies in his life who constantly tried to validate through her.)

"Take them if you want... it's not going to stop me from groping you and then entering you swiftly."

Your circumstances make this difficult due to the irregularity, but I'd still give a tracking app a try; you may be able to spot some sort of larger pattern over a longer period of time, given the data.

I use the Clue app to track my wife and there are a lot of extra variables, such as mood, emotionality, occurrence of sex (don't be spreadsheet guy, however), and so forth.

[–]RedPillQuest[S] -1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Thanks! I might try that. Of course, she'll think it's weird when she sees the app pop up on her phone... I really need to get her off of my iTunes acct.

[–]drty_prRed Beret0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

Unless she is on a steady schedule, it's extremely difficult. Probably isn't worth your time unless you're looking to plant seed?

My wife is anywhere between 24-32 days. It's so consuming, I'm at the point of making tracking redundant. I caught myself looking in the garbage last month. The garbage!

[–]JDRoedellRed Beret1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Would be lying if I said Ive never done it. Gives whole new meaning to that Rollo post about not rooting through the garbage.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (32 children) | Copy Link

Why do you need to track her cycle? Does your dick work differently somehow when you use a protractor to chart the aura of ovulation?

If you need some sort of placebo schedule for when your wife gives you imaginary permission to unhide your inner shitlord in the bedroom, maybe just follow the moon calendar. I hear emergency rooms get packed with all sorts of crazy when there's a full moon. Be a werewolf, I guess.

Uh.... Sidebar.

[–]RedPillQuest[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Uh.... Yeah... My dad... The guy who taught me to be blue pill.

[–]KyfhoMyoba0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

SSRI's are satanic. Find a shrink that's willing to wean her off of them.

[–]RedPillQuest[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Thanks. Easier said than done. She's been on them for over a decade.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (7 children) | Copy Link

She's also been taking a daily SSRI for as long as I can remember.

Not really then. SSRI mess up menstrual cycle and gives it varying length. It might be 28, 56 or 10 days long and no certain way to determine its length until it ends.

[–]RedPillQuest[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

Ah. I didn't know if her cycle was weird because of the SSRI or the IUD.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

If IUD is hormonal (in simple manglish) her cycle is non-existent because her body is tricked into thinking she's pregnant.

[–]JDRoedellRed Beret0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

My wife has a long and irregular cycle naturally. You need the clue app and then you need to think like a WWII submarine captain.

In WWII, torpedo targeting was done with good old fashion geometry and a side of luck. A captain would view the target through the periscope and take range, speed and angle on bow (vector of target) plot readings. The more plots they could take the more accurate their firing solution would be. So in your, and my, case you want to acquire data with clue over several months and compare the average "day 1" over several months. It's not an exact science but it will get the torpedo somewhere on target (pun intended.).

And get your own damn iTunes account FFS.

[–]RedPillQuest[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

Totally my fuck up for letting her on my account in the first place. I'll fix it. It'll give her hamster something else to spin about.

[–]JDRoedellRed Beret0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Just make a second account and use it only for you

[–]BanginAway-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

When my wife got off hormonal BC and on Paragard (copper) good shit happened. Took a few months but she is horny as fuck when ovulating (duh). I track her schedule, she knows and we laugh about it. It's extremely useful to do so wether you tell her or not. Best sex is the day before the WomanLog app says is her prime day. Anything goes that night. Get on it boys.

[–]BluepillProfessorMod / Red Beret-1 points0 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Understand the female cycle and observe her behavior. The bloops linked this as "creepy" so let me weigh in on really creepy shit. I can usually tell when my female students are ragging or ovulating and I only see them 2-3 times a week. You see your wife every day. You don't need the dogs to shred the bloody tampons all over the living room during shark week to clue you in. Pay attention and keep a calendar and it should not be hard.

However....birth control can screw up the cycle mostly by dampening the effects and make it harder to spot (That was a great joke, get it?). Some IUD's release hormones like the pill but there are still predictable swings in her behavior that you should be able to see.

Happy pills tamp down the normal swings even further.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
