So my thermometer broke and I'm only charting CM this month and I'm pretty confused. I was under the impression that you would have a few stretchy days before drying up, so now I'm thinking my body geared up and failed. So hopefully someone will be be able to help.
My most plentiful day was CD-23 and things seemed to taper off a bit, but I was still having stretchy type for a couple of days after. Today it's on the upper end of creamy and yesterday I had only sticky, but with the same sensation I get with creamy.
I'm sure this is obvious to someone, but I'm a little baffled.
Thanks in advance for any help
I usually dry up pretty quickly. I'll get 1 day post O that will still be fertile-ish, then dry up. My most recent charts wont reflect it thought since I was using cough syrup to get a little extra ewcm. lol.
I'd say you probably O'd sometime Sunday or very early Monday.

I think the "dry up" routine varies by person. I would have peak day, one creamish day (though different from the creamy from pre-O) and then back to my sticky BIP. Sensation wise I always quickly went from slippery to not slippery, never completely dry though. If I were in your position, I'd consider myself fertile until you are peak day +4, and then follow per-ovulatory rules again until either AF shows or you are able to confirm O.
