It's been a LONG time since I charted (just started harting again last Sat).

If I remember right, I knew my O dates to a "T", and I wouldn't DTD 3 days before, and 4 days after after I got my confirmation that I had ovulated. Having four days of dry-up was my indicator. I guess it was roughly a weeks' time without DTD or having DH pull out WAY before he was to ejaculate.

I don't use O predictions to figure out when to DTD or not. I track my signs of fertility each day and go by that, because the time of ovulation can move from cycle to cycle. We follow the Billings Ovulation Method rules for TTA. It all depends on what my CM is doing in terms of when to DTD before O, and we wait until the 4th day after the mucus Peak (close to O).

The 4th day after you confirm o I think is what most people say, though I've heard 3rd too.
