Do you bonk like mad when you get EWCM or when it finishes?

Sounds like a naive question but have to ask it as someone said it was the LATTER when I thought it was the FORMER???!

I think ewcm can go on for a while and can occur before during and after ovulation, hence having sex as much as possible during this time

Thanks yellow flowers.
There are so many conflicting opinions on this EWCM stuff. I think your advice is sound: just get to it as much as you possibly can!

after is most likely too late

EWCM dries up pretty much as soon as you ovulate so I have read - so as soon as you get it start, and then carry on for a day or two after it goes - just in case.

You should certainly bonk like mad when the EWCM is around. It is the most fertile of fluids that assist the mobility and general wellbeing of the sperm (they can last about 5 days in the stuff) It usually dries up once you have ovulated, but a day or two of insurance bonking after this should ensure that there are plenty of swimmers loitering around to meet the egg.

MMM - like the idea of insurance bonking... grin

Also, sometimes you can get more than one time of EWCM, so you should just keep going with the bonking until you are sure that you have actually ovulated!!!

I know it's a trial but really best just to bonk all month - you never know when those crafty eggs may think it's safe to make a run (or slide) for it grin
