    Default Ovulation clarification

    Hey there,
    Just looking to clarify my understanding of when I ovulate. Lots of tmi I'm sorry!
    So, I'm under the impression that ovulation last for 12-24hrs. I'm thinking that as I'm getting older it is more like the 12hr. My cycle is pretty regular and I recognise the egg white CM. My question is, when I detect this CM (usually going to the toilet) has my 12hrs just started or has it been going for a bit, or is this the end of this fertile window?
    Thx :-)

    You can get Ewcm for days before ovulating and you can also get Ewcm without ovulating.

    My understanding is you ovulate either on your last day of ewcm or the day after. The best way to tell is by measuring and recording your bbt (basel body temperature).

    I've seen my SO use a phone app with a "woman's callendar" or something of the sort. That's usually how she keeps track of the ovulation.

    I couldn't deal with the uncertainty of it all, so I bought an OPK. These typically include a phone # you can call with any questions as well!
