Does having ewcm ALWAYS mean you ovulated? Even i its really early in your cycle? My last cycle started November 10th and i'm still waiting on AF to show. I had ewcm on cd 14-17, at least i assume thats what it was. I know many people are mis informed but i was talking to someone else who is ttc and she was like "oh theres no way you ovulated so early if your cycles are so long" and i was pretty sure she was wrong but i obviously didnt want to debate at a friends party! Lol. But anyway i mean, i dont actually KNOW that i did ovulate that early in the cycle but thats when the really watery CM showed up (and it was a very noticeable increase and lasted about 4 days like i said so its not like i'm like that all the time - it was obviously a noticeable change which means something different is going on in the body right?) so i just assumed after reading about CM that thats when i might O. So umm i'm sorry if this doesnt make sense i'm super tired and i'm starting to ramble but basically, does EWCM always occur around O time? Or can you have ewcm on cd 14 then O on like, day 28 or something like that? And can you have ewcm and not O at all?

It can be confusing, but basically you do ALWAYS have EWCM at O time (most people, some women do have the issue of not having enough). However, your friend is right. If you had EWCM early in your cycle and thought you O'd, but haven't either had AF or a BFP (in greater than 18ish post when you thought you ovulated), then you probably didn't O then. Your body can gear up to O and then not O for reasons such as illness, stress, travel, etc etc. That could explain EWCM and no ovulation. The best way to confirm ovulation is by temping each month so that you can see a clear thermal shift.

I guess my biggest question if your last cycle began November 10th and you haven't had AF, have you tested?

This happened to me last month my body geared up to o on CD14 and then again on CD21 and I ovulated CD21. Had I not been temping there would have been no way I would have known that.

The other thing is you could be having an anovulatory cycle, which sometimes can be quite long. If you don't get AF soon, you might call your doctor and just run it by him/her to see what they think...
