Are you coming off any type of birthcontrol? I gave up on the calendars because my cycles have been wacky since going off the pill. We actually just try to BD every other day from

Watery cm is considered fertile cm because it has properties that are sperm friendly, just like ewcm. Creamy & sticky cm are considered non-fertile as they tend to inhibit sperm movement.

Just because you have fertile cm doesn't mean you're necessarily going to O soon -we can have numerous patches of fertile cm during our cycle, even after we O.

Are you planning to use opk's or temp? If not just bd eod to be sure you cover your bases.

I haven't been on any type of hormonal birth control since August of last year. Very regular periods, pretty consistent O-days (between CD15-CD17) been temping through fertility friend for the past year as well in addition to condoms to "prevent" and to have good information when I actually started to TTC (like now). I think I'm just going to BD every day and have fun. Thanks for the advice ladies.

I couldn't have said it better than Angela. I agree with everything she said. I'm tempted to just copy and paste. Lol.

Angela is right, watery cm can be considered fertile. Even though you know your average cycle pretty well, you have to keep in mind that fertility friend doesn't! So until you get a few cycles entered in FF, the site will err on the side of caution and give you a "green light" so as not to miss your window, even though your O day could still be far off. Some women don't ever get ewcm, so FF will also look at watery cm and give you a green light. Good luck!
