I have watery cervical mucus for 15 days now. What does that mean? Am I still ovulating?

I have watery cervical mucus for 15 days now. What does that mean? Am I still ovulating?

Cervical mucus: Just because you have watery mucus for 15 days doesn't mean you're ovulating for 15 days. It just means you can't use cervical mucus as a reliable predictor for ovulation - which can be common for some women. If think you're having abnormal discharge, then it's time to check in with your doctor. ...Read more

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

What does wet slippery cervical mucus for an extended time mean? (15 days + after ovulation) no infection.

What does wet slippery cervical mucus for an extended time mean? (15 days + after ovulation) no infection.

? no ovulation: This may represent poor luteinization (progesterone production in the luteal phase of the cycle), or no ovulation at all with continued estrogen dominance in the hormonal picture.

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?

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

What does it mean if my cervical mucus isn't creamy or stretchy? Its always clear and watery. Can i get preg? Got pos ovulation test, questioning it.

Clear is OK: I think that clear and watery is ok and should indicate good levels of estrogen. May be helpful to have an ultrasound with a fertility specialist to make sure that you are not having a watery discharge for any other reasons....Like a blocked fluid filled tube (have seen this only once in 16 years...But you never know...).

Good luck

Cervical mucous: 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.
Monitoring ovulation via cervical mucous is not very reliable. ...Read more
