What signs do I go by to check ovulation? adult content

I am on CD11 and so this is our week to be doing the BD. Yesterday I took an OPK and it was negative but my cervical mucus was watery. Today, my temp has gone up by only .4 of a degree, my CM is dry and my OPK read POSITIVE! So, do I go by my OPK reading and BD every other day starting today?

  • And, if cervical mucus isn't even watery or egg white consistency, how can I be fertile? Wondering if I wait to see what tomorrow brings?

  • If this is your first month checking your mucous then what you saw yesterday may be YOUR bodies equivalent to egg white. All women are different and it took me a few months to figure out what my egg white was. You could also be checking your cervix and see if that helps at all.

  • I am in my 4th month of TTC and found this finding to be very different from every other month that I have been observing it. I had a negative OPK yesterday afternoon and now, with dry CM, I have a positive OPK? Very strange. I am also way too early to be ovulating as I don't ovulate until at least CD14. I have a 28-30 day cycle.
    I am not familiar with checking my cervix either and what to really be checking for or how that should feel.
