Help Using the HF Desktop Version
In all versions of the Hormonal Forecaster that are post-Beta (version 1.0 and up) a user's manual (formerly the help file) has been included to assist program users. If you have just began using the program and do not understand how everything works, select 'StartUp Wizard' from the 'File' menu and allow that to walk you through setting up a file and getting acquainted with the Hormonal Forecaster. Additionally, an example file is included with the program so you can get an idea of what the Hormonal Forecaster can do. Since many of the program features are not enabled until you enter data, the example file may be helpful in allowing you to sample the program before you begin recording information.
For more technical questions and problems, you may want to consult the help file. To open the help file, simply press F1 or go to the 'Help' menu. If you have a problem that is not covered in the help file or involves the program giving an error and then exiting, please email support (see the last section of this page). Please include information on exactly what you were trying to do when the error appeared. It is also useful to include your HFC desktop data file as an attachment. Further details can be discussed via email.
If you are looking for more information about fertility awareness or natural family planning techniques used by the Hormonal Forecaster to predict ovulation and gauge fertility, you may want to visit the Fertility or Resource page of this website. FertilityInstructor.com is a great place to start if you are looking for an introduction to Fertility Awareness. The program also comes with a special help file that offers a brief overview of natural family planning. To view this, select "Intro to Natural Family Planning" from the Help menu within the Hormonal Forecaster desktop version.
