Hi All, I'm a little confused! I had been tracking ovulation based on my cm but last month it was all very odd so decided to use OPKs this month. My app says ovulation process started sunday and the big day is tomorrow, but other calculators say different dates for ovulation - saying the 5th, 7th or 9th could be ovulation!

The opks aren't coming up with anything at the moment and so have kind of decided to just dtd everyday this week and keep trying the opks? Or should I just go based on the opks?

So confused!

Opks only work for regular cycles & apps are only good with a few months data.

I'm now ovulating around cd19 & use cm/ewcm to work it out. If you DTD every other day you've got all your bases covered!

Just remember some ladies ovulate as early as cd5! X

I have regular cycles and my app has at least 8 months of data. I'm still monitoring my cm, what confused me last month was that I never seemed to get the ewcm.

There is far too much thinking going on about this, I think we'll dtd a lot this week and then try and get into a routine of dtd every other day for next month.

I'm just glad my husband is around to actually dtd with at the "right" (at least I think it's the right time!) time this month!

There is a small part of me that is worried I may have ovulated early sigh

AW bless ya! Try cough syrup containing 'g' ingredient venos? Tbh last month I hardly got any ewcm & thought I hadn't ovulated....this month tonnes again & I hardly took cough meds!?

I know what you mean, my dp was on nights this fertile period & I'll! We only DTD once!!! X

Hehe, thanks for putting up with me bella! There seems to be some cm so will just keep at it, maybe next week we'll dtd every other day.

Tmi tip...you get more cm after a bowel movement...I try danger poking (after washed hands!) And it helps me to see my cm....this cycle I danger poked only to get ewcm ten mins later!? X
