It depends when you usually ovulate.  Next Thursday meaning 3 days from now or a week and three days?  If it’s next week, you have very little to worry about!  (although I guess you technically could ovulate super early and still get KU.)

Even if its this Thursday, you probably shouldn’t worry, People have great timing when TTC and don’t get pregnant.

Don’t worry.  It’s highly unlikely.  As far as fertility awareness rules go (the rules for when to have sex if you want to avoid pregnancy), you almost were within the 5-day rule; and day 7 is likely to be “dry day” and fall under that rule — especially if you have longer cycles.

@BellaDee:  You can’t get an accurate read on your CM the day after he finishes inside you. At least that’s what we learned in the Billings method class. Ejaculate can mimic the texture of EWCM, so it’s hard to say whether it’s one or the other. I think you’re probably just fine. 🙂

@BellaDee:  its probably just the excess from last night. You’re not suppose to check the morning after a BD, check in the afternoon.   My CD1 was October first too and i’m suppose to O on the 16th i think. So i figure condoms are necessary from about now on.  Sperm can only last 5 days max and i have yet to have watery CM so i dont think i’m going to O any earlier than that.  If your CM was sticky yesterday, you are fine

Unless you are temping, or using OPK’s, there’s no real way to know if you’re fertile or not.. because your cycles are irregular at this point, ovulation could be pretty unpredictable.

It’s not very likely that you’re fertile yet. That being said, I got pregnant by having sex ONCE, 5 days before I ovulated.

Chances are, you’re in the clear, but you won’t necessarily know until AF shows (or not).

Side question!  Do you guys who use the FAM/chart ovulation use kits that you buy, or do you just check your CM and go according to online guides?

I wouldn’t say it’s impossible, but it is possible.  More possible than planning a late October, early November baby!  Before you actually start TTC, I highly advise letting that idea and concept go.  While it may be ideal, it will start you off with too much pressure and possibly disappointment.

@ChicFoodist:  read the charting book on http://www.fertilityfriend.com

It tells you how  to chart. I temp and check my CM every day, but my temping is god awful right now so i will use and OPK when i think i’m close to my O date.

@urchin:  Wow! 5 days before?! You always hear that sperm can survive that long, but don’t often hear real life stories of it happening. 🙂

It’s probably unlikely unless you happen to O early. You can get pregnant from having sex once 4-5 days before ovulation. I’m proof of that!

@ChicFoodist:  I use the Wondfo OPKs. I was starting around CD 10, but actually using them showed me I O closer to day 17-19. So I will start later in my cycle testing with OPKs. I don’t rely on CM that close to O because we are having sex a lot around that time. (like another poster said, it’s not reliable after he finishes).

@CocoLoco523:  I was charting and temping and everything. I knew all my exact dates of everything. Haha. I wouldn’t believe it, if it wasn’t so well documented. I was charting to PREVENT pregnancy..and ..whoopsy! Ovulated a couple days earlier than usual, plus had that one day of unprotected sex 5 days before.. and my DD was created.
