You Creighton girls are going to get sick of me, lol. I have talked to my instructor about this a little, and will talk to my Creighton doctor when I see her in a couple weeks, but I want to know your perspective/experience/advice on this:
I don't feel like I'm ever "post-peak" in terms of the "rules." Because I have easily 3-4 "peaks" in a cycle, I can't ever feel confident saying "okay, I already ovulated" since I never feel more "ovulatory" about one peak over another. I also don't have consistent dryness after peak, but am not using yellow stickers yet. I started my period today, for example, and had what 8C (tacky cloudy, right?) yesterday. Honestly, I'm not convinced I actually ovulated in this cycle, since I never have more than one day of peak-type mucus in a row. I usually get through the entire count of three before I "peak" again. My chart has been a multi-peak chart 2 cycles in a row now.
Has anyone ever experienced this? What kind of advice do you have? How can I know when it's okay to follow post-peak rules (like, all day instead of end of day only, etc)? I just like to hear the feedback of others because I think more exposure helps me absorb the information better. Hearing 3 people tell me the same thing just makes it sink in, you know? The wedding is coming up, and I'm getting a little nervous about actually incorporating the rules in a practical sense!
