Stupid I know, but pretty please?

I'm sorry for the stupidity of this, but I would appreciate any advice.
My last period was April 22, and my fiancée and I BD the week after and 5 days before I supposedly O'd {which is today} but I haven't had any more EWCM. I'm just wondering if I O'd before the chart says I was going to? My periods are normally 28 days and 5 days, but the one in April was only 3 days and really heavy. Thanks for any help.

  • There definately can be variation. Have you been monitoring temp or using ovulation sticks?

    I found that ovulation sticlks were the best predictor for me because it was very difficult for me to detect temp changes or changes in CM. But, there can be fluctuation from one month to another.

  • BD too soon sperm only lives three days on average. Chances are it died off b4 you ovulated. Once you ovulate you have about 72hours in which conception is ideal.
