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! ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

What to do if no cervical mucus during ovulation clofert 100mg?

IUI or letrozole: The effectiveness of IUI with a normal semen analysis. Clomid (clomiphene) does create a mucous problem in about 40% of patients so IUI can make sense if that is the stim drug. Letrozole on the other hand does not cause a mucous problem. In our opinion, IUI is not needed for letrozole. In conclusion, if Clomid (clomiphene) is your drug, IUI can be helpful and likely would yield a PR of 8-13%/cycle. Good Luck ...Read more

How do you know if your ovulating besides cervical mucus if your ovulating?

How do you know if your ovulating besides cervical mucus if your ovulating?

Here are 4 ways!: For a 21 year old female whose periods are regular (which can be as short as 22 or as long as 36 days), ovulation is approx mid-cycle. For a 28-day cycle, this would occur ~day #14. A basal body thermometer can be used, with a rise in basal body temp signaling ovulation. Too, you can purchase an ovulation predictor (like clearblue easy). Some women have mittelschmerz, or ovulation pain. ...Read more

My BBT is low but my cervical mucus is egg white, it is means I'm ovulate?

Ovulation: Ovulation occurs consistently about 14 days before your next cycle. If you know how many days there are from the first day of the bleeding to the next during your normal cycle just subtract 14 days. This allows you to predict when you should be ovulating. Cervical mucous and body temperatures are not reliable indicators. They are highly subjective and for most will not be helpful. ...Read more

Is it possible for me to still have egg white cervical mucus and not ovulate?

Is it possible for me to still have egg white cervical mucus and not ovulate?

Yes: Ewcm usually accompanies ovulation, but many women don't notice it at all. Mucus is a very "soft" non-specific way of detecting ovulation. If you have mostly regular periods each month, you are 99% ovulating during those cycles. ...Read more

Does cervical mucus always means ovulation? Because im on bc shot and just had a little bit of cervical mucus on my 14th day cycle

No: You are constantly producing cervical mucus and vaginal secretions. The mucus can have a different consistency around ovulation. If you are on the Depo-Provera shot and receiving them online, it is unlikely that you are ovulating, and that this is normal discharge. See your doctor if odor or pain occurs. ...Read more

Had period 5/17 - 23. On the 26th and today the 30th I experienced heavy cervical mucus enough to change panties. When did I ovulate?

30th more likely: Cervical mucus is not the best measure of ovulation. If your cycles are regular--like every 28-30 days--then you are typically ovulating around cycle day 13-15. Ovulation predictor kits (purchased over the counter) are a more accurate way to pinpoint your ovulation. For the dates listed in your question, it's more likely you ovulated on the 30th (cycle day 14). ...Read more

Does egg white cervical mucus happen before ovulation or does it mean you are ovulating, if before how long can it start before ovulation takes place?

Does egg white cervical mucus happen before ovulation or does it mean you are ovulating, if before how long can it start before ovulation takes place?

Mucous not ovulation: In someone who has classic 28-day cycles, the mucous you describe from the cervix does become more abundant prior to ovulation. Because sperm can live for 2 - 5 days in the female genital tract, the appearance of the cervical mucous precedes ovulation and points to the "fertile time" during the cycle. If one is doomed not to ovulate, the appearance of mucous has no meaning. ...Read more
