hi i was just curious if any of you know how the EWCM works? i had really stretchy CM on september 30th and had intercourse with my ex on september 26th,28th,30th and on october 2nd. i also had sex with my boyfriend now on October 6 around 3am. im asking because im unsure of the father or my baby and was curious if any experienced users on here can help me figure this out. i'm really confused with the difference between conception and conceived also which one means day of sexual intercourse.
last period was dated on september 16th. about 29 -32day cycle
Stretchy CM - Sept 30th
Intercourse with ex - 26th,28th,30th and oct 2nd. 100% chance of ejaculation in me( we always have had unprotected sex and never got pregnant but this was also the first time my CM was as stretchy as it was)
intercourse with new bf- october 6th with a very slim chance of ejaculation in me

Here is how the dates work:

Stretchy CM indicates that you are fertile. It is caused by a surge in estrogen. Some women will also get the stretchy CM just before menstruation.

Ovulation happens between 12 and 16 days BEFORE menstruation (14 days average).

Semen will stay active for about 5 days inside your body, waiting for you to ovulate. When you ovulate (it takes about 15 minutes) the egg will start floating down your Fallopian tubes. It will die after about 10 to 24 hours if it does not get fertilized. So the sperm that is waiting inside oyur Fallopian tubes will try to fertilize the egg as soon as it is detected. The date the sperm and egg meet, your ovulation day is also the conception date. But the sperm can be from sex a few days before.

When you have a scan, they will give you a gestational date (GA) this date will start counting 14 days before your conception/ovulation date. If you have a perfect 28 day cycle, day 0 will match the first day of your last menstrual period (LMP).

After the egg gets fertilized, it will float down your Fallopian tubes while it slowly grows. After about 8 to 10 days, it will reach your uterus where it will try to implant in the prepared uterus lining. If the egg does not get fertilized, it will die and float down into your uterus. Your uterus lining will begin to separate and dissolve about 14 days after ovulation, and be excreted as your menstrual flow over the next few days.

From what I understand about what you are saying, your ex is very likely the father. you had sex with your new boyfriend in the last 13 days before your menstruation. This time is normally an infertile time for you.
