Ignore CM after intercourse. It’s inaccurate. Also some women continue to have CM after ovulation so looking for three dry days isn’t necessarily going to be accurate. Since you are temping, that’s going to be your best indication.

I actually NEVER had dry days – like, not at any place in my cycle, ever.

It’s really hard to tell what’s CM and what’s left over ejaculate, so I basically tried to wait about 12 hours or so after having sex to check my CM.  By then, semen should have thinned and run out – it shouldn’t mess up your observations anymore at that point.  I would recommend checking your CM throughout the day as well – checking it once per day really isn’t that effective (it can change throughout the day, and you’re supposed to note the most fertile CM you see on any given day).  I pretty much just checked every time I went to the bathroom – it only takes a few seconds, and then you have a better handle on what’s going on.

Sparkidoodle:  I didn’t track CM at all. I didn’t ever have enough to notice it without actually having to put a finger in there to check it and I just didn’t feel it necessary with temping. And I am one that never really goes dry, it would change consistency after O, but there was always something.
