I have a silly question. Yesterday I had dry CM, DH and I DTD last night w/o protection (his decision) so I did kegels and waited until this afternoon and evening to check my CM. It is watery and slightly opaque, not slippery at all, not thick and lotion like. Could this still be semen residue? It's our first time DTD since going off BCP so, I'm not sure what I'm looking at.

My vaginal sensation is dry for sure. I have a hard time believing I could go from dry to watery over night. I have not had watery CM since going off the pill last month, so I am confused. It did not dry up in a few seconds so it was not normal vaginal secretions.

It's normal to have some wetness related to seminal fluid the day after DTD. That's why for avoiding pregnancy, alternate evenings are available for DTD while you are dry. The day after is to allow seminal fluid to leave the body, then the next day you have all day to make sure you're still in the dry phase.

My CM was stretchy this morning and a little slippery... so now I get to stress about if I O in the next couple days because of the small chance one of them swimmers got up there... 99% unlikely but still...

If your body signs are moving to the highly fertile phase and you O shortly there is a chance that you could get pregnant....

No worrying here, it's 8 days later and no ovulation yet. We are in the clear!

And bear in mind that if there is absolutely no CM present at the time of BDing (and there was none the 3 days prior) - you don't have to stress about conception even if you have CM the day after. Sperm die within about 30 minutes if there's no CM present to nourish them.

But if there is CM present the day you BD (or within the 3 days beforehand), sperm can enter the cervix and live up to 5 days.
