So i normally have pretty predictable periods.. but this month my temps didnt really prove that i Oed when i think i did.. and i usually get O cramps on the day i O and i didnt.. According to my CP and CM though i Oed exactly on the day i normally do...
So if it were you, would you just use protection the rest of the month just in case you didnt really O yet.. or would u just go by CM and assume that AF will come when predicted and go on unprotected.. ??

If you are TTA, then I suggest you use protection from now until you do start your period and watch your CM carefully in case there are indeed changes and your temperatures do go up. However, keep in mind that if you do use protection your CM will be different (possibly drier if you use condoms, or it may produce more wetter CM for spermicide uses (ex KY).
If you are TTC, then by all means continue doing what you are doing.
I wouldn't go by CM alone unless you've taken a course on how to do that reliably. If you haven't and there is any doubt about when ovulation occurred, consider yourself potentially fertile. It doesn't matter too much what your cycles are usually like because every woman can have an irregular cycle. It's best to go by the signs as they happen, rather than going by past cycles.
