Have I missed my opportunity this month?

I'm feeling pretty bummed and deflated this morning. I've been using ovia to chart my temp and cm and I'm taking OPKs. I'm getting to grips with what my cm should look like. For the last week or so it's been that lumpy school paste stuff then the day before yesterday it went watery and yesterday it was sort of egg white but not definitely. I figured today I would see EWCM but it's gone back to the lumpy stuff.
Also with the OPKs, there was a line at cd6 and then it got fainter and now no line at all. I'm currently on cd15 so surely something should be happening. Have I missed it? Or is it normal?

When did you do the deed after your period ended? Always have sex every other day when coming off and upto your estimated ovulation and that way you'll have it covered.

We DTD on says 6 and 8 and the. Every day of my projected fertile period according to ovia

Keep doing the OPKs, this happened to me this month. I had half hearted lines on them that then faded away, was feeling fed up and stressed by cd15, then a strong postive on cd19 followed by a temp spike. If you haven't had a temp spike on ovia then you probably haven't missed it. Don't give up yet smile

Thanks for the reassurance mancomb smile I've started doing multiple OPKs a day. At least I started today when I'm off work, it'll go to pot tomorrow!
I only started temping this month so I don't think I'll be able to tell much from my temperature yet

Still no sign of a positive opk or EWCM sad feeling a bit like a rubbish woman at the moment. The OPKs are barely showing even a hint of a second line on CD17 and ovia keeps changing my fertile window. I'm getting very frustrated

How long are your cycles typically? It is so easy to get disheartened but cd17 is still early days for many women. Keep dtd and ignore ovia's projected fertile window as that is just a guess until it has at least 1 cycle of your data. Are your temps still low? You should be able to see a biphasic pattern even on your first month of temping smile fx for you

They vary between 26 and 30ish days. They've been a bit up and down but seem to be getting back to normal now.
My temperatures go between 96 and almost 98 (97.92) with no apparent pattern although I might not have taken them all first thing which could have thrown them off

Luteal phase can be as short as ten days so if you were having a 30 day cycle you could ov as late as cd20 and it would be ok. Keep doing the OPKs.
When you say 'not taken first thing' do you mean not all at the exact same time or that you have got up, eaten, drunk or talked before taking it? If the latter that will be throwing them off. Otherwise keep at it.

I always ovulate later than I think. CD 21 usually with a 33 day cycle!

Would you say it's more likely that I would ovulate late rather than early, say CD10?
