Confused with my fertility window because some are longer than others on diff website
My periods are 26-31 days.
I'm curious as of if I had ovulated or conceived on cd15 because of all the ewcm I had, it was my first time seeing it and the first time getting pregnant.
If I have the very fertile mucus does that narrow my fertility window

Answer
If your cycles vary from 26-31 days then you could have conceived anywhere between Sept 27 - October 3rd. Generally if your cycle is 28 days long you can get pregnant from days 12-16. Since your cycles vary between longer or shorter, you add a few days before and after that time frame. The cervical mucus makes conception easier, but you could conceive any time approximate 4 days before and 2 days after ovulation (since sperm can live in the reproductive tract for about 5 days, waiting for ovulation). Having very fertile mucus does not narrow your fertility window.
