When my cervix is soft or when I get ewcm?

So I don't know exactly when I'm due to ov but it's between Thursday and Sunday some time. Am currently cs12 and and have woken up with a soft high cervix and cramps but no ewcm yet. Even if ewcm doesn't appear today, should I still be bding due to the position of my cervix? Or should I wait for ewcm, which tends to arrive a coupe of days before ovulation? Thanks.

If you can, dtd anyway. It can’t hurt!

Good point, @peanutty86

Agree, do both.

Thought I'd post on your thread- you very kindly posted on mine!

Yes- I'd say DTD given the swimmers can have up to a 5 day shelf life- there's definitely no harm in having a few ready to meet and greet at the right time.

I always think there must be a bit of a lag time between ewcm being produced and there actually being evidence of it so there could still be fertile quality mucus present before actually seeing it given the other signs show oestrogen is high.

Best of luck!
