Trying to conceive

Ok Ladies, I really don't know what to do and google isn't helping me (LOL)
I need some advice from anyone who might have some insight....
My chart shows ovulation detected last week and puts me at 9DPO today. However, I have a very erratic BBT and the temperature shift was certainly not a clear one. I had positive OPK's for two days leading up, full ferning on the saliva microscope and lots of full on EWCM. I've had dull cramps (or more of a 'pressure' feeling) almost every day since.
Today and yesterday My BBT has dipped really low and now I've started to get lots of very creamy, bordering on EWCM again. I've got strong twingy cramps today and they are sharper and more spreadout than they have been all week. Partial ferning on the microscope again (this detects estrogen surges). My skin broke out big time yesterday and I have a bit of a backache today too. I've run out of OPK's and can't test for LH again.
My dilemma is that I've read some studies that having sex during the tww, especially at time of implantation can lower your chances of conceiving due to contractions in the uterus (I guess one of the reasons they tell people not to have sex after IVF).
So while I could treat these signs today as possibly my body making a second attempt at ovulation and bd some more, I'm terrified that if this is actually implantation and I have sex I might dislodge anything that's trying to make itself at home down there! (I know this sounds silly)
What would you do? I'm wondering if I should buy some more ovulation strips on the way home and see if I get a positive for an LH surge again?
I really really don't know what to do!!!! Help.
