CBFM just got my 'peak'. When do I DTD?

Morning ladies

This is my first month using CBFM and I got a peak this morning! I have been backing this up with CB digital OPK too which also gave me a smiley too!

So the question is this? When do I DTD? I have read I should do it today and tomorrow as I will get my second peak then. Do I then do it a third time (after my second peak - Thursday) too?

Also is there an 'optimum' time of the day to DTD? I'm sure I read somewhere between 5-7pm?

Thankfully we DTD on Sunday afternoon (the only way to keep ourselves amused being snowed in wink), so I'm hoping some of DH soldiers may already be waiting but want to ensure that I have all my bases covered!

Thanks in advance for the help xx

i did it every day i had a peak and the next day.
poor Dh, when i last used opks we had dtd and then i got 3 days of peaks plus an extra day - he was exhausted grin

Yep I would DTD on thursday too just to be sure grin
You usually get a final high after the two peaks as it's still possible to get pg then as you can ov later than the 24 hours post LH surge

Basically employ a shagfest mentality and you'll have all options covered

Thanks pettyprudence. Have just told DH that we have 3 days of DTD and he smiled! Will let you know how he reacts day 3 though haha!

So an update.

I got my first peak Tuesday morning and DTD early evening on Tuesday.

Got a second peak Wednesday morning. Both me and DH had busy day at work and unfortunately when we went to DTD Wed night, DH couldn't do it!
I was gutted but tried not to show it.

Anyway I woke him at 3am this morning (thursday am) and we have managed to DTD but am worried that I have missed my prime ovulation time as we didn't DTD on day 2 peak.

Should we try again tonight?

i think you ov up to 24 hours after your peak so keep shagging grin

Thanks pettyprudence.

I'm just worried that my day 2 peak was Wednesday but we DTD at 3am Thursday morning.

So you think we were ok with timing and should try again tonight?

Hi Shoegal,

I used the CBFM for the first time this month. Got a peak day 15 & 16 ( which is later than I thought I'd been ov'ing and quite possibly where we'd been going wrong!)..

We had dtd the night before but on peak night 1 poor DH got stage fright. It's an awful lot of pressure on them.. We managed it peak night 2 by trying to relax a bit and then once more the following night..

2 weeks down the line.. BFP grin

I've read doing it before ov more important so there are swimmers at the ready.

Good luck!!

Thanks for the reply MildredH - that's encouraging to hear.

Many congrats on your BFP, really happy for you, that's brilliant news!

We managed to DTD again tonight so fingers crossed!
