Can't really know. : Tracking your cycles and watching your mucus are both good methods of determining your ovulation, but if you want to add some science to the situation, you can buy fertility tests. There are individual test strips that monitor the lh level in your urine. When it spikes (+), you will know that you are going to ovulate in 24-48 hours. There are also more expensive machines that check estrogen and lh. ...Read more

1st month of ttc. After ovulation CM has not disappeared, instead it become more thick and yellowish(today 3dpo). Does it rule out the conception?

Cervical Mucous: I do not think that many of us physicians put any stock in using cervical mucous as a guide to any real or valid part of the menstrual cycle. I do know that it in no way rules in or rules out pregnancy. ...Read more

Ttc after miscarriage. Breasts aren't becoming sore after ovulation like before. Cm is off & on creamy white, then ewcm & stretchy then watery x1 wk?

Not ovulating?: It may take a few months after the end of a pregnancy for your body to resume ovulating normally. Often there may be estrogen production (ewcm) but not the right hormones to cause the egg to mature and be released (ovulation). This usually corrects itself, but, if it has been more than 3 months, it might be wise to see your gyn to check if ovulation has resumed and offer treatment if not. ...Read more

Can you get egg white CM after ovulation? 8dpo?

Can you get egg white CM after ovulation? 8dpo?

Possibly: Ovulation occurs with high levels of estrogen which increase days before ovulation to a maximum 1-2 days before. Usually the mucus that is clear that you notice occurs starting days before ovultion. You have about 24-36 hrs from the peak of the mucus to ovulate. You may see some after ovulation, but it will be much less than seen before. ...Read more

I have notice snot like CM (a strand) for about 6 days after ovulation. Could this be an early sign or pregnancy

I have notice snot like CM (a strand) for about 6 days after ovulation. Could this be an early sign or pregnancy

No: Progesterone production begins in your ovary when you ovulate. This hormone causes cervical mucous to thicken, appear cloudier and be less "stretchy". I suspect this is what you are noticing. Its normal. It doesn't mean you haven't conceived. If your late for menses, check a home pregnancy test. ...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
