So, we made it through the first ovulation postpartum. My little one was 12 mo. I had at least a month of tons of fertile fluid along with cramps and spotting. I thought that was tough for charting and abstaining but now I'm completely confused. I had the obvious thermal shift, mucus change, menstrual flow 10 days later. I had a couple of dry days and now some sticky/some stretchy. What is frustrating is my temps. I vary from 97.1 to 97.9. The latter temp was my thermal shift last month for ovulation. I'm not sure what to do for abstinence purposes. Do I consider every day of fluid show (even sticky) as possibly fertile? I'm on day 13 of my cycle. I guess I just thought once I had a period things would be clearer, not more confusing! Last month my temp schedule was erratic at best but I kept on and still had a nice, easy to understand pattern. I'm so new at this please help me if you can.
