Question about CM and O (TMI)

Has anyone ever had peak cm AFTER O? I had definate O symptoms (pain, fullness, EWCM, incr. desire, etc) on CD 16, the day I have O'ed the past 2 months. However I had tons of mixed clear/cloudy CM on CD17 (stretched 3-4"!?!) The next day I had stick infertile type CM. On CD 17 my BBT went up and is still going up. I was certain I O'd on cd16, but the CM confuses me. FF gave me a dotted CL because of the CM. So what is your opinion and has any one experienced this? FYI we did BD CD16 but I would not think it could affect the cm THAT much!

ANy input apreciated!

Hi! It *is* possible (and very common, actually) to have fertile cm more than one day, and I think it is perfectly reasonable to think you may have had the ewcm the day after O. But it is also logical that you might have those other O signs the day before O. I don't think you can be that exact about finding it out, usually. The good news is, in the long run, it doesn't really matter if it was cd16 or cd17. It would be a much bigger problem if the days were a week apart! ;)

HTH!
