Does a temp shift trump CM observations after ovulation? I am curious.

I had possible EWCM this morning, but it could have been arousal fluid. I cannot tell, it was stretchy and I have read arousal fluid wont be stretchy. Anyways, it's gone this afternoon, I do not feel slippery, but now TCOYF is applying a peak day again. I made notes on my chart about this change and check CM more often than I should probably, 5+ times a day usually, so I will watch it the rest of the day.

I am REALLY curious if my thermal shift could be voided by 1 morning of possible EWCM.

I'm not worrying about any of this, just really curious/perplexed. I was hoping for a few protection free days of DTD but with this EWCM, its probably safer we use protection or just abstain.

It's normal to have a bit of CM during the Luteal Phase, but it's not considered fertile because the egg is already dead. Your sensation should still feel much drier than it did before ovulation. If you start to feel just as wet and slippery as before, then you would question whether you had really ovulated or not.

OK now I am annoyed. It i think its just my charting software being annoying. TCOYF removes ovulation if I put EWCM yesterday and moves my CL to 98.6! I think that's completely inaccurate, especially considering my CM went from EWCM in the morning, to dry in the afternoon, creamy last night, and dry this morning, sticky a few min ago. I have not felt slippery, I actually feel pretty dry today. My temp is still up. All other signs point to having ovulated.

Should I put in notes my EWCM for the morning and put creamy as my CM for the day? That seems to be the only way TCOYF will allow me to show ovulation. If I override and set my CL to 98.0 like it should be, it doesn't give me ovulation and keeps my peak day on yesterday. Because the EWCM was considered infertile, putting it in notes and not under most fertile CM makes sense to me.

What do you think?

FF kept my dotted cross hairs even with my EWCM marked yesterday, go figure.
