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

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

Is it possible to have egg white cervical mucus on day 7 (last day of period) and then go dry for 8 days? Did I ovulate on day 7?  29 day cycle

Unsure: The vaginal discharge will vary throughout the cycle and often is very thin and watery about the time of ovulation. With the cycle length you describe, ovulation would have been about cycle day 15. For every woman, ovulation occurs 14 days before the period starts. So you could not ovulate on cycle day 7 and start the period on cycle day 29. It ovulation is cycle day 7, the period is day 21. ...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
