Exclamation EWCM or sperm??

I have a question. Sorry if there is any TMI in it, but I am ovulating, and I am unsure when I started being I m.c. I went to the dr yesterday who informed me I was ovulating, I believe I started the day before yesterday being there was some cm that comes around when I first start to ovulate. anyway Dh and I BD last night, and I was curious I am still checking my cm and having ewcm now but I dont wanna mistake that for sperm. So I did take a shower this morning washed myself and also took a bath later. I still have it, is it sperm or cm? Do you know? So you think we should BD tonight when he gets home and tomorrow? Thanks

Re: EWCM or sperm??

If you have alreday Oed, then it is probably too late. Your best chances are before O. You should probably BD in the 1-2 days after that just to be on the safe side. As far as sperm vs. EWCM the best way to tell is to do the water test. Get a glass of water (room temp) and after checking your CM put your fingers in the water. EWCM is supposed to almost form a ball, while sperm will dissolve or break apart. I have never tried this myself, but I have heard that it works.
