Ok, here's one! I've been charting, and everything seems to be going smoothly. Today, on the fourth day of change to slippery, I'm feeling a sharp pain in what I'm sure to be my right ovary. I've always assumed this is the signal of ovulation when I've experienced it in the past. It seems to coincide perfectly with my charting, does it not? Can I assume that I have just ovulated and count three days from now to avoid? I will continue to observe and chart, of course, and hopefully everything I see and feel will remain consistent. What if my chart shows something different (especially since this is only my first month of charting)? What do you think?

Ovulation pain is not more accurate than your CM - because it can occur prior to ovulation (due to the follicles in your ovary being stimulated in preparation to O), at ovulation (when the ova ruptures through the ovary), or afterwards (from the fallopian tubes contracting to move the ova farther along).

Do not go by pain to determine your Peak day! (Not if you want to avoid pregnancy anyway!) It can confirm what your CM is telling you, yes - and it's a nice little confirmation. But it does not trump your CM pattern and cannot be relied on by itself.

Peak is determined only after your slippery mucus ends and you can only start counting 3 when your mucus pattern indicates that it's safe to do so, no matter when the pain occured. Hopefully the two will coincide nicely anyway, but just in case they don't...go by your CM!

Sorry, I was out of town and missed your response. Thank you! I continue to chart anyway. I had the ovulation pain on Day 16, 4 days into the slippery mucus. I had more the next day, but now I'm done. It seems like it was just a nice confirmation on how things are going. I'll be waiting until tomorrow night or possibly the night after to make sure I'm in the clear. Thanks!
