Hey girls
I had some down time and wanted to ask...
Trying to figure out what's going on with my cm.
Before TTC I never really noticed it..like in my undies or anything
But when we started and I was paying attention to it I notice lotion-y thick cm in my undies but I was pregnant that month..so not sure if its something I always have in my regular cycle or if its a sign of early pregnancy for me...
Been having a lot of it lately and dh and I did bd (unprotected) twice a couple days before I noticed ewcm ...hmmmm

Thoughts...I know I read before what cm is typically like throughout your cycle but for some reason I'm blanking

I haves pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



But these are not your only options. My "creamy" is more like non clear ewcm that doesn't stretch.

I used to get more of it before ttc... if it persists in great amts... I'd just swing in for a quick check with the dr to make sure it's not an infection. (not all infections smell bad either, learned that one the hard way)

ewcm is really just a guideline. The best way to judge ovulation is how slippery your girlie junk feels when you do a kegel exercise. Do you feel warm, wet, and like you could jump your DH with out needing to get warmed up or use lube (I don't recommend actually doing that!) but yet you aren't "excited"? That's what you want for ttc.

Or... if you'd like a simpler expression. If you sat on a plastic chair naked.. would you slide off? LOL

Ashley those are amazing descriptions!!

I agree with Ashley, CM is really not a good way for everyone to judge O or anything else more just a general guideline. The only way to know if you are pregnant would be to take a test.

Here is the "typical" progression of CM from American pregnancy org:

After your menstrual period: The production of cervical mucus is at its lowest immediately following your period, and some women report “dryness” during this time. But, over the next several days, more mucus will become present and it will like be yellow, cloudy, or white in color, and somewhat sticky to the touch.
As Your Ovulation Date Approaches: As you enter your fertile window, your cervical mucus will increase in quantity and moistness. Color may be cream-like in appearance.
At the Time of Ovulation: In the days immediately preceding ovulation, the production of cervical mucus will be at its highest and the consistency and color of the mucus will be similar to egg whites. Once you detect the presence of this fertile-quality cervical mucus, you will know you are in your most fertile days.
After Ovulation: After ovulation, the quantity of cervical mucus begins to decline and become thicker in consistency. Unfortunately, after tracking changes in your cervical mucus, you might find that you really don’t produce very much fertile-quality cervical mucus around the time of ovulation. Or, you might even realize that the cervical mucus you produce is “hostile”, meaning it is thick and sticky, instead of thin and stretchy. Either condition can hinder your reproductive efforts by making it difficult for sperm to travel efficiently and safely to the Fallopian tube to meet the egg for fertilization. Insufficient production of fertile quality cervical mucus or the presence of hostile cervical mucus may result from a variety of factors including diet, stress, hormonal issues, or even from taking prescription medications like Clomid.

Hope that helps some
