CD3 on my third cycle. I had a weird cycle last month. Textbook temp shift, but a return of CF including a day of EWCF during they week after O. As in, started again after Peak day and the correct number of days dry. How do I interpret that? I admit it worried me because we were "safe" as of the day before it and DTD without withdrawing, then the next day it started back up... But obviously, it worked out ok because here I am on the next cycle.

fresh_vegie ~ I agree with BFS. Last cycle O was probably sometime from cd17 to cd19. That would make your lp 13-15 days long. So, yeah, I think your CHes are correct for this cycle and you could start expecting today. Remember that it is within normal for the lp to vary up to 2 days so, assuming your lp is normally 15 days long, may not show for another 2 days and you'd still be ok. I'm not sure how the paragard affects cycles. Copper is not an inert metal inside the body, though. I think it does have some sort of effect on things other than just the physical barrier to implantation.

echo ~ I don't recall there being any hard and fast rules about using the Rule of Thumb (ROT) to disregard outlying temps. I wish there were something like if it's more than 0.2 degrees higher or lower (although lower doesn't really matter) than all the other temps it can be disregarded. Anyway, the basic idea is to put your thumb above the group of lower temps and see if any of the temps are covered by your thumb. If so, you can use the ROT to disregard them. Obviously, a temp of 97.8 when all your other temps have been below 97.4 is an outlying temp and can be disregarded. Ovusoft will do it for you if you set it in your preferences. The ROT option is on the Temperature and Time tab.

dealic ~ It's normal to get fertile looking CF mid-lp and right before . As long as you have a clear and sustained thermal shift you can continue to consider yourself safe.

Really? Thank you for telling me that. I haven't ever had it happen before, so I was thrown off. The things you learn. I thought I knew my body well but these last 2 cycles have shown me how different it is from what I thought.

What MW said about outlier temps. I actually just read that section of TCOYF yesterday. There's not a lot of detail... I normally only discard temps if I can think of a reason *why* it would be off... However, there's months like now, where a week plus after the fact, I can look at a temp and go ok... there's no other reason, but I know it wasn't an O temp rise, so i feel ok with ignoring it.

Oops I meant to ask a question of my own. I'm almost positive I'm post o, though FF hasn't confirmed it yet due to, actually an outlier temp... but anyways, post o... And I had CF today that in my underwear looks sticky/creamy, on my fingers feels definately creamy, but on toilet paper it has a bit of an EW looking sheen to it... So... what would you classify it as? My instinct says creamy, since that's the *feeling* both internal and on fingers, but I'm not sure, because it seems weird to ignore the EW like sheen. Shouldn't matter anyways, as I'm pretty sure I'm post o, but just curious.

My CF that's shiny like EW but not stretchy is sticky. It doesn't have a creamy feel, though.

That makes sense, because on my underwear it looks sticky, but it feels creamy. I think it's probably transitional between the two.

Hey Ladies - I know it's early but I'm going to try to get the May thread up and running tonight. I will be out of town this weekend (through late Saturday). Sorry for any confusion, I'm not meaning to rush the days any quicker than they are going by.

AFM: Cycle day 5... is still visiting. The past several cycles I've had a 2-3 day visit so this is really aggravating.

Tonight B. refused goodnight kisses because kisses are "gross"
