OK this has been on my mind ... me and dh have been doing it a lot this cycle and I just need to know... how do you tell the difference between cm and "leftover" stuff from dh? I can't tell if I'm having ewcm or its from last night. Lol.

EWCM is usually clear. Also, they say the semen will soak into the toilet paper and the EWCM will "sit" on top of the tp. And the last one, which I haven't been able to ever confirm, is that the EWCM will form a ball and sink to the bottom of the toilet. Well I can't confirm that because DH's semen sinks too. But I can usually tell because mine gets clear and slimy, and it has a distinct feel that is just different than his stuff.

I agree, semen is usually cloudy where my ewcm is generally very clear. Also, semen dries kind of sticky/tacky, where ewcm not so much for me.

I know this is gross but smell it. When you wipe and you see it on the tp, do a quick sniff test. LOL. If it has a noticeable smell, it is probably semen. Semen has a very distinct smell.

Oh yeah! Can't believe I forgot to say that lol. Semen smells kind of like very diluted chlorine or bleach, but a bit earthier, if that makes sense?
