What if called when you are both romantically and sexually attracted to women but I'm still romantically to men? I'm occasionally sexually attracted to men but only some days?

I would say you are bisexual with a preference in women or a Biromantic Lesbian. How you choose to label yourself is completely up to you.
It seems as though you’d likely identify as bisexual still (though this may change because of how you feel for people who identify outside of the gender binary). Being bisexual doesn’t mean a person has to have consistent attention to one gender or mean that the attraction they feel has to be balanced. Being attracted to men doesn’t mean that you have to be attracted to men all the time or to every man you see just as a straight person or gay person isn’t always attracted to a certain person regardless of their sexuality. The most true thing is how you feel You know yourself best.
Your romantic orientation seems to be bi romantic. As for your sexual orientation, the fact that your attraction to men is variable can be confusing. However if you do feel attraction towards men and women, though at different levels and with different frequency, that would still be considered bisexuality. You don't have to be 50-50 to be bi, one can also have a preference for one gender, also a very strong preference. However, you're free to identify with any identity you feel closer to you reality, it's up to you!
