I am not supposed to ovulate for another 4-5 days but my temps are a bit weird and CM is watery so I did take a IC ovulation test there is a line but its light so its a neg. I just had a ectopic surgery on August 1st and already bled for that but started charting again because our Dr has said to wait two cycles to avoid pregnancy Just so that im healed up completely since they did cut my right tube and left it to heal. SO and I tried condoms tonight but it turned out uncomfortable eventually so im not sure how we can keep doing that Is there anything other we can do except avoid DTD all together for a whole week
I told him if I ended up pregnant to soon on accident he was coming to the Dr's office to explain why he cant help himself

Your fertility signs are the most accurate way to tell if you're potentially fertile or infertile on any given day. Every cycle is unique and the time of ovulation can move from cycle to cycle, especially as your hormones adjust after a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. The watery CM is a sign that you're potentially fertile right now, since CM enables sperm to survive in your body up to 5 days waiting for ovulation. Ovulation tests don't give you that much advance warning, they will just turn positive a day or two before ovulation - usually several days after the CM has already started.

Well...that is a highly effective option. It's basically how NFP works and this is the board where you'll find people who actually avoid DTD when fertile signs are present (plus 3 days after) when it's important to avoid pregnancy.
For those that prefer a Fertility Awareness Method, barriers are used on days with fertile signs. But then you're still gambling with the failure rate of the barrier of choice and whatever reactions or discomforts you might have with those.
So....probably a good idea to really discuss this and decide how much of a chance you're willing to take right now. You know, come up with a game plan for the next few cycles if you both agree that it's important to avoid conception!
