I’m guessing that that machine probably takes a while to learn your personal hormone levels.  Not everyone would be at the same hormone levels, or the same temperature when ovulating.  Cervial mucus is basically just discharge I believe.

It takes a few months for the monitor to read you.  It took about 3 months of the monitor for it to get used to my cycles.  I never went with CM, just temps and the monitor so I can’t help you with the CM question.

Agree with others.  It can take a few months to adjust properly.  Though I will say, I got pregnant on a month where I got no peak readings on the monitor, but I knew I was ovulating based on the EWCM.

Don’t forget, Sperm live for up to 5 days, so basically, you just need sperm to be around when you ovulate. Your egg can live for up to 2… so as long as you’ve had sex within about 5 days pre-ovulation, the potential for conceiving is there… 

Basically, you can get pregnant on a day you don’t have sex. You can get pregnant 5 days after having sex… 

I don’t know anything about the monitor, but I just observe my CM on the TP when using the restroom. Be careful with checking in the shower as you can wash away potential fluid first and wet hands may cause you to misread. Also do not check after arousal or sex as other fluids can mask your CM…

if your dry now, than you are prob past o.. after the ewcm, you will o, then get dry… try fertility friend.com, it keeps track of all your info.. and you can check your cm after a bm on the tissue, in your panties, or by stick a finger or two inside and checking that way.. but you do want to always check the same way.. consistency is key!! good luck!
