What does it mean if u have a lot of stretchy cervical mucus after you already ovulated could you be pregnant?

Only if period miss: I would not suspect pregnancy unless you've missed a period. If period isn't due yet, the stretchy mucous would make me suspect that you didn't ovulate this month. Time will tell.

Is everyday creamy cervical mucus after ovulation a pregnancy sign?

Is everyday creamy cervical mucus after ovulation a pregnancy sign?

No: During and after ovulation the quality of the cervical mucus changes. The cervical mucus becomes thinner and more stringy, allowing easier penetration of the sperm. Any symptoms/signs during ovulation do not indicate a pregnancy.

Is sweet smelling cervical mucus after ovulation an early sign of pregnancy? I've read online people saying this is true. I'm at 7 DPO (cd20 of 28)

No: No, seven days after evenan exactly known ovulation is too early to detect pregnancy in any way, implantation doesn't occur until 6-7 days post-ov."telling early" is this year's blog craze: I'm afraid it's complete nonsense, although its fun to think about.

Does Plan B work during/after ovulation? For instance if you take it the day after you notice fertile cervical mucus?

Does Plan B work during/after ovulation? For instance if you take it the day after you notice fertile cervical mucus?

Prior to ovulation..: Plan B works mainly by delaying ovulation. Some claim it prevents implantation after conception but not all studies have shown this to be true. Its controversial. The unknown here is whether-or-not you ovulated prior to taking it. Cervical mucus is not reliable enough to know. Best wishes!

Always get creamy CM after ovulation, but when you ovulate does your cervical mucus instantly change, like right away it goes from clear to dense?

Not reliable: Relying on cervical mucous as a tool for predicting ovulation is highly unreliable. If you feel you have abnormal discharge get tested for infection. If you are trying to get pregnant try an ovulation kit. If you want to avoid pregnancy use condoms or birth control.

Three days after ovulation, my cervical mucus is still stringy and like egg-white with a brown tinge to it. Why?

These are: Mysteries hard to explain. Are you sure when u ovulated? Are you sure that the mucus gets firm immediatly after ovulation. Are u sure it's not vaginal discharge or infection? There is no clear answer 2 your question but it is not likely to be a problem. Are u trying to conceive and gauging your cervical mucus? If so you are gonna go crazy, try to relax.

Can you tell me if I'm expecting.. Egg white cervical mucus. N cuple symptoms. Ovulation was March 20. help?

Can you tell me if I'm expecting.. Egg white cervical mucus. N cuple symptoms. Ovulation was March 20. help?

Can't tell: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms.

Can I ovulate without cervical mucus?

Can I ovulate without cervical mucus?

Female Fertility: Cervical mucous is a sign that some use to tell when they are more fertile. But, ovulation is in no way dependent on cervical mucous. The process of ovulation occurs in the ovary and not the cervix.

I have no cervical mucus around time of ovulation?

No mucus: Obviously this is a concern… since this mucus is driven by estrogen which peaks midcycle I wonder about ovulation. Have you had any surgery done to your cervix-cryosurgery for an abnormal pap smear/cervical dysplasia or a leep procedure? I think a midcycle ultrasound will help elucidate whether or not your ovulating and you can actually see the mucus in the canal by ultrasound at that time.
