My partner and I are currently TTC and so far this month we have had sex CD10 and CD12. My cycle is usually between 27 and 29 days. We were unable to try yesterday (CD14) but will again tonight.
According to what I have read, we are already have a chance of conceiving due to those dates. When I checked myself (CD13) I felt no CM. I felt dry in fact.
So my question is this. Is it possible to conceive without CM? Everything I have read says that the sperm will swim and lie in wait. How is this possible without CM? Or is it just that CM is often around for longer in the run up? I will be 34 soon and I'm aware that it can decrease with age.
I feel like we may have missed the chance this month what with not being able to have sex last night. My cervix feels different yesterday/today and there is more CM though is feels more watery than egg white.
Congrats Changing . Did you track your CM through the month to discover that? I feel like that wouldn't happen for me!
We are currently using a fertility lube from boots but tend to use a minimal amount just for comfort more than anything. It's so slippery it's unreal so there's almost no friction when using the guideline amount. Maybe we should up the amount regardless.
