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.

Unreliable: Trying to monitor your cervical mucous is very unreliable. Simply buy an ovulation kit at the pharmacy. Much more trustworthy.

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.

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!

Can your cervical mucus still b watery but not stretchy after ovulation?? What should it look like after ovulation? TTC

Wives Tales: There is no science or medical recommendation to look at, monitor, or rely upon any vaginal or cervical mucous or discharge. These are not in any way reliable indicators of any part of the menstrual or ovulatory cycle.

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.

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. Remember though, mucous is just a marker and not an absolute. Might be good to be evaluated for adequate ovulation if that is your consistent finding.

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.

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

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.
