Alright I think the titles pretty self explanatory, me and DH always used condoms and now that we’re not…. Well honestly I didn’t expect TTC to be so. Messy. I am a not great CM tracker to begin with, I understand what it’s supposed to look like but half the time I have no idea.
My question is: if you have sex, how long after before you can check your what your CM is looking like for the day? Like say this morning me and DH did some baby dancing… but i feel like it kinda lingers around and … TMI Leaks out all day. How am I supposed to know what’s sperm and what’s CM. ……
Lol this is probably the most TMI thing I have posted on the bee I am feeling embarrassed but I seriously didn’t expect when we started trying for there to be so much fluid?? ……… haha. Anyways any CM charting bees who have insight I would appreciate it.

Hopefully someone else will have a better answer… But if I ever wondered, I would just smell it! I also just chill on the toilet for a ridiculous amount of time to let everything come out and that helps the leaking after I get dressed.

I find that semen makes everything stickier down there for about a day or two. The past 2 cycles I’ve only seen EWCM after BM’s (I always think brides maids lol!!). Now I’m going to share something embarassing: Every time I wipe after a BM I stretch whatever fluids end up on the toilet paper between my fingers & tap them together. Semen eventually gets sticky & white even when it starts off quite liquidy & clear. EWCM will stay the same consistency & generally stretches a way further. Also, when in doubt, dip your fingers in water: if it gets dilluted it aint CM. CM will keep to itself.
Quick question: do you eject his spunk after baby dancing? I find I can kegel a majority of it out so whatever lingers doens’t make a mess,

@beckwife: that’s true! i tend to try and get it all out too…. But you know sometimes you’re In a hurry haha.
@MrsRugbee: Thank you! Tht was totally the answer I was looking for.! Okay soooo happy your said that about wiping after BM because I totally do that too! That’s usually when I start to notice my EW CM I’ve been having issues getting it and this cycle for the past two days I have had it when I wipe which makes me über happy as I am still 4 days before O unless she shows up early which I won’t complain!!! And I did not know the trick about the water thing, that’s a great thing to know! As for the kegel I totally do that too…. But I find i still like to wear a panty liner as it drips a little? ….. 0_o ah yes all the things you never knew you’d know about TTC!
Thanks for giving me some awesome, advice ladies and not mocking my TMI moment xo
