Breeding Question...

This is my first year breeding, so I want to make sure I try to do everything right.

My albino male has been breeding my 9' argentine female for over 2.5 months. it started with courting for a few weeks, then I caught them locked up in copulation several times over a period of 3 weeks or so. I have seperated them a few times to rest the male. I pulled the male out again last week, and I just noticed the ovulation swelling in the female yesterday. What do you recommend? Is the job done, or should I re-introduce my male briefly?

The reason Im asking, I have my boa book in front of me, it says that sometimes when the female swells, people can misidentify this as her being gravid, and pulling out the male too early can cause slugs.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated
