If im not mistaken ovulation pains can last more than a day. Its hard to say bcuz each woman is different. Only way i can suggest to find out your ovulation pattern is if you do opk and bbt and checking your cm
For example, i have ovulation pains and ewcm on the same day, my ewcm will last about 10-15 hours after my ovulation.(egg only lives for about 24hours b4 it dies) I also did bbt and opk to see how my pattern was and it was consistent, concluding that i ovulated on the same day i got pains and had ewcm.
I can be wrong but i dont think you ovulate after the ewcm is gone, that is an indication to let you no ovulation has already occured.(i thinnk that is right)
I can say when you do have the ewcm it is a good time to have sex bcuz that is the fertile mucus for the sperm.
for me... i have a son and now pregnant again.,,my EWCM is a late signs to start BD-ing...we conceived both times when we bd'ing 2/3 days prior to my EWCM.. we werent trying when i conceived this time but it is just happens..
according to the book taking charge of your fertilty it occurs while ovulating, some women will have more than others so they may experiance it for more than a day. Myself I got it for a few hours in one day. My understanding is if you have the ewcm have sex! I did this and am expecting in may.
