CM question, TMI warning!

Okay. I know this is not a very appropriate question. But I can't ask anybody in real life. That's what this board is here for, right?

How do you tell the difference between CM and semen? How long after intercourse will semen drip from me? Are we talking hours or days?

DH and I are BDing as much as possible midcycle. (Most days, sometimes skipping days, never skipping more than 2 days.)

I'll give a senario so that makes a bit more sense... DH and I BD at night. I lay in bed about 20 minutes (to give the semen a chance to work in, lol) and then go to the restroom. The next morning I have sticky discharge. Is that CM or semen? What if the discharge is that afternoon or the next day?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks. I've been too busy the past few days to get online and check back. But, that also means I've been too busy to stress about TTC.

By the way... I'm currently watching Daniel Radcliff host Saturday Night Live. It's nice to relax and not "try" so hard to ttc.

No such thing as tmi on a ttc board! I hate trying to decipher b/w baby batter & cm, especially since it can be a combination of both. I've noticed you can see remnants the next day, but I guess it would depend on how your ph's mix? I usually feel more watery or ewcm -not sticky. I remember reading that if the cm will dissolve in water it's semen & if it sticks around its cm.

Either way, keep dtd!
