Hey sorry if this is tmi but I am so confused about cm.. When is the best time to Dtd after seeing it? Is it before you ovulate you get it or do u get it while you are ovulating ? X

Be hard to answer hun everyone is different only way really is todo ovulation tests at same time so you can see when you get a positive and when you get your cm along side it and keep logging it till you see a pattern x

I tried them and they didn't really work for me .. I wasnt getting positives and I found it more stressful then anything .. My period was later last month so perhaps I tested at the wrong time xx

Hi, according to the web the best time to DTD is when you see slippery egg white like cm. This is often closely followed by ovulation and is supposed to give optimal conditions for Hubby's contribution to last x
Monitoring it is a bit much for some people but it has worked for a few ladies I know - myself included !

Thanks for the advice girls I dtd both days saw the cm but my app on my phone is telling me different lol.. It's saying I will ovulate tomorrow and I saw the cm on Friday and Saturday .. Will start taking temps and that next month if no luck x

Phone tracking apps are OK if you fun the exact same cycle every month with zero variations... The month I cought I only noticed the ewcm - we were on a TTC break after 2 yes TTC! We didn't use APS, predictor kits and I ate/ drank what I wanted and I even ditched the vitamins lol
That month it worked out I ov' d 3 days later than I thought I did !
Temping is the only way to "see" ovulation but that is after the fact so it can take a couple of cycles to be able to predict when.
Good luck xx
