    Hi guys!

    I have a mild cramping and this afternoon 5pm ish I had what seemed to be stretchy ovulation discharge. My man is at work, until midnight ish, if we DTD tonight, would I be finished ovulating if I had these symptoms yesterday and today? I have no idea how long the ovulation window is?

    I cant work out ovulation by days as my cycle is irregular and I'm not doing temps at this point.

    Thanks in advance guys :flower:

    Hard to say. Have you used opk? If you are ovulating then the egg only lives 12 hrs or so I think. The cramping could mean ovulation is today, which you should be fine if you dtd tonight when hubby returns. Good luck!

    Hi happigail, if you were using opk's you'd have a better idea of when your window began & ended.. and if you're having O'pains yesterday & today, it's hard to say exactly when your O'ing but I get to bd'ing asap!! Your egg can last 12-24 hours, so fx'ed you'll be able to catch it!

    ps you should use opk's, you'll be able to pinpoint pretty much to the day when you've O'd & you'll know ahead of time what's going on.. It's especially nice if you've got irregular cycles.. GL

    I Googled and most say egg lives 12-24 hours but a few say 24-36. So I don't know which is correct but you should be fine either way.
